4D for Mobile: Colorize your apps without a struggle

Automatically translated from English

Our mobile products (4D for iOS and 4D for Android) were both built with simplicity in mind, allowing you to build apps easily, in a few clicks.

That also includes a crucial step: choosing a main color for the app. That’s why, since the introduction of 4D for iOS, the main color of your mobile application was defined by the dominant color of your application’s logo.

With 4D v19 R2, we’re giving you a feature that lets you easily define the main color of your iOS and Android app, by selecting it from a color picker fully integrated into the project editor.

Here’s how:

Go Mobile with 4D: Generate Android and iOS apps from a Single Project

Automatically translated from English

We are pleased to announce that 4D for Android is available with 4D v19 R2.

Many features are already available, and with each new release, we’ll enrich the possibilities so that 4D for Android’s features match those of 4D for iOS.

What’s best is that the same mobile project can generate both native iOS and native Android apps. We made sure to provide very similar user experiences on both platforms while still respecting their standards. 

how to extend your application and go mobile

The mobile project editor is fully integrated into 4D. You can design and build native iOS and Android apps quickly and easily without programming. If you want to go further, you can open the generated application with Android Studio or Xcode and customize it with Kotlin or Swift.

The other big advantage of a native application is that you can access the data even when you’re offline.
