Thanks for reporting a problem. We'll attach technical data about this session to help us figure out the issue. Which of these best describes the problem?

Any other details or context?


The first new feature, called App Templates, form the building blocks for speed. Each app template includes a combination of beautiful pre-built screens with navigation, business logic and data structures. App Templates also support out-of-the-box mobility needs like touch ID authentication, Google Maps integration, and in-app notifications.  With App Templates, IT teams can cut development times by as much as 70%.   

The second new innovation, called Theme Customizer, helps developers rapidly build beautiful, agency-grade user experiences without extensive design knowledge.   With the Theme Customizer, developers can upload an image of a company logo and OutSystems instantly creates the mobile app theme that perfectly matches their style and brand. Developers preview their application in real time with a built-in emulator and tune them automatically to the device they are running on, creating a perfect native look and feel.

Developing enterprise-grade mobile apps has been a major challenge for IT teams. This issue was highlighted in The 2017 State of Application Development Report where time and skills were identified as the two most critical barriers to mobile development today.  The comprehensive report surveyed over 3,200 IT professionals in 40 countries and 28 industries. 

We’re constantly looking for new ways to empower teams to deliver the solutions their organizations demand -- fast,” said Paulo Rosado, OutSystems CEO. “These new features we announced today deliver on our promise to continue to fuel innovation, improving the low-code development experience and helping IT keep pace with the growing needs of the business.

With this release, OutSystems is bringing the ease-of-use and simplicity of templates and themes to enterprise development teams,” said Jason Bloomberg, President of Agile Digital Transformation analyst from Intellyx. “Especially with mobile apps, customer expectations have raised the bar on functionality, design, and performance. With its App Templates and Theme Customizer, OutSystems nails all three.
