    4.2 mobile packaged apps

    j4john
      Hi,

      Can anyone tell me if any of the packaged applications have a mobile UI?
      Is there any way to tell, other than by installing, unlocking and examining the UI properties?
      Is there any plan to upgrade the packaged apps to support mobile?

      Thanks

          I believe most (if not all) of the productivity apps provided by Oracle have a mobile interface. Check out the buttons on the top-right.

            Thanks adrianp.

            May I ask what evidence your belief is based on?

            Buttons on the top right? Of where? The Packaged Applications tab of the Builder provides no relevant info...

              You'll have to install and run the application to access the "mobile" button. And if you looked at the application information, you should see the same icons in the screenshot. Hope I'm answering your question.

                In addition to Adrian's information - some these applications (particularly the sample apps) are there to showcase & demonstrate features of 4.2, so yes - they do have mobile UI.

                  All,

                  Just to clarify, the Sample Database Application in APEX 4.2 is using our APEX 4.2 mobile features and this application can be used as a showcase / example for mobile development. Several of the other packaged applications also include mobile pages, however those mobile pages were built based on the mobile features available with APEX 4.1, which were fairly limited compared to APEX 4.2. So while those mobile pages are working just fine, I would advice looking at the Sample Database Application as a reference. With the APEX 4.2.1 patch set we are planning to update the packaged applications to use an up-to-date mobile implementation.

                  Regards,
                  Marc
