Progress Accelerates Mobile Application Development
With Progress and NativeScript, MeWatt cut iOS and Android app development time from two months to two weeks
Progress today announced that MeWatt Corporation, creators of a revolutionary IoT device for near real-time energy monitoring and analysis of appliance energy usage, is leveraging the NativeScript® open source platform to enable customers to become more knowledgeable about their energy consumption.
Serving both commercial businesses and personal consumers alike, MeWatt created a device that could IoT-enable any appliance, with actionable recommendations and alerts to empower users to reduce energy costs and control their carbon footprint. MeWatt needed to build a mobile app capable of quickly pulling and analyzing data from potentially hundreds of thousands of appliances – without negatively impacting performance. NativeScript, the open source framework from Progress, provided MeWatt with the tools needed to not only create the app, but do so in a matter of weeks, compared to traditional native approaches that could take months and requires specific development skillsets and technologies.
“The NativeScript framework is paving the way for mobile application development,” said Faris Sweis, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Developer Tooling, Progress. “Developers want native, high quality, high performing apps, and they want to reuse as much of their code as possible to build native mobile apps faster. NativeScript empowers developers to deliver maximally performing and elegant applications with a minimal amount of effort.”
