Usage of xpageswiki.com for iOS


Find the app by looking for "xpageswiki.com" in the Appstore. Other keywords are "xpages" or "ibm domino".

Start the app. At the first start it doesn't have any content and will get the most recent content from the xpageswiki.com website.
Tap on "Content" to watch the table of content growing.

The app tries to get the most recent content at every startup when the device has network.




View content


At any time you can tap on a topic to see the content. In the content window, you can drag the text around as needed, or you can change the orientation of the iPhone or iPad.



Working with links in the content


Some pages have links to external websites. You can tap on these links to get to these external pages.
After tapping an external link, you can go back to the original content by clicking the "home" button. Or when you went through other links on the external page, you can go back by tapping the "back" button.


xpageswiki.com on the iPad


This app is optimized for the iPad, too. If the iPad is in landscape mode, the table of content is always visible on the left side.
On the iPad, the content has a bigger font size and some colors are different.

Technical Information


I developed this app using the Titanium platform. Titanium allows development for iOS and Android with JavaScript and spares you to learn Objective-C or Java. For me Titanium was a good choice to get productive fast.

Furthermore I used the YouAtNotes Mobile Framework which allows easy synchronization of Domino data and has a lot of goodies to make development with Titanium more fun.

There will be articles in THE VIEW about my experience with Titanium and the YouAtNotes Mobile Framework, the first article is expected in late november 2011.

I think that's great the Titanium can build a basic native app, but, this app looks like a simple HTML app...why build it into native app?

because I can cache all the content and make it available offline!

and that means, you can use all the content everywhere regardless of your network. And furthermore, as a native app you can find it in the Appstore.

W doesn't the content fit to screen instead of dragging around while reading to see it all?
