MoSync Reload

We created Reload because testing on different devices in parallel wasn’t possible. Now all devices on my table - whether they’re Android, iOS, Windows Phone - are simply updated in one go!

Developing and testing HTML5/JavaScript code on handheld devices was up until now a time-consuming part of hybrid app development.

Traditionally when editing a typo, fixing a stylesheet or tweaking a javascript function, developers used the desktop browser to test the code or by creating a simple web server and serve the code on it. Although these workarounds get the job done inside the web container, they are not usable when it comes to working with device access APIs or Native UI generated from JavaScript. Therefore, developers then have to compromise, and as a consequence waste considerable time by building and installing the app on each target device in sequence over and over again until the final result is reached.

MoSync Reload offers

  • Web developers a workflow that they are used to, but for native mobile apps
  • Access to native features on Android, iOS and Windows Phone from JavaScript
  • A perfect way to work more interactively in teams and with customers
  • Project owners a quick way to see changes in real time on real devices

MoSync Reload brings a pure web development experience into the native mobile app world. MoSync Reload lets web developers edit HTML5 and JavaScript code on your PC, Mac or Linux machine and then instantly see the result of your changes on any number of devices or emulators in one go. It’s just like pressing “reload” in a web browser, but for native mobile apps.

With MoSync Reload web developers can access native features such as camera, file system and sensors as well as creating user interfaces build with real native UI controls. When the developer is satisfied with the application developed, they can pass the project as-is, to MoSync SDK to build standalone applications for distribution through the App Store, Google Play and Windows Marketplace.

“MoSync Reload brings the instant turnaround of web development to native mobile apps. No more minute-long cycles of compile, build, link or package, just edit code, and reload to run - it's that simple,” said Ali Sarrafi, Product Evangelist at MoSync.

“We created Reload because testing on different devices in parallel wasn’t possible. Now all devices on my table - whether they’re Android, iOS, Windows Phone - are simply updated in one go!” states Patrick Broman, Head of Architecture at MoSync.

The latest version of MoSync Reload is released along with extensive documentation, examples and tutorials.
