Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Fingerprint sensor (Touch ID), 64-bit IOS7, screaming-fast performance, M7 motion chip, oh, my!
On September 10, Apple Computers announced the iPhone 5s – a premiere offering, the iPhone 5c – a less expensive offering, and an introduction of IOS7 – a completely redesigned operating system, free to all i-device users. Customers seeking security will love with Touch ID, a key concern in the BYOD arena. The speed will appeal to those who have held out on going pure-mobile because of performance.

John Rhodes, CTO, CM First Group announced today that CM First Group is ready to support customers who need to mobile-enable existing applications. “CM WebClient is designed so to make it faster and easier to move CA Plex applications to web and mobile, without recoding their client-server interfaces. The latest release offers support for Windows Mobile 8 and Blackberry. CM First has always supported the iPhone.”
Consumer and business demand is expected to be high for the latest phones. For consumers, the option to get a feature-rich, less expensive model will appeal to the cost-conscious and first-time smartphone users. Businesses will rush to embrace the Touch ID security features; many users are reluctant to lock a phone because of the time required to unlock it for use. More details of the features can be seen here: http://www.apple.com/iphone-5s/features/.
Early information indicates that iPhone users will be able to download iTunes content without a password using the fingerprint sensor technology. This opens the door for other applications to exploit password-free capabilities, a much-desired feature for password-overloaded customers. Businesses will seek to take advantage of this for existing and new apps.
CM WebClient will be introducing support for the new features, but it already offers new themes, icon menus, audio and video, advanced geo, and access to device email and address books in the latest release. Other new feature included for enterprise app development include camera / file upload, signature capture, local storage, and embedded HTML pages and forms. Support for Adobe Cordova (PhoneGap) is provided to facilitate publishing WebClient apps to the various app stores for native app deployment to customer or employees. One big benefit of CM WebClient is that developers can release their apps from a unified code base to all popular mobile tablet and phone platforms, including the new iPhone. Additionally, WebClient-generated functionality can now be deployed to Windows 8.0/8.1 and Mac desktops as native apps. These features make it possible for the CA Plex developer to deploy converged apps that provide the same basic user experience whether the end user is on mobile, tablet, or their computer. This is the kind of functionality demanded by Apple followers. Learn more about CM WebClient here: http://www.cmfirstgroup.com/products/cmwebclient/.
CM First customers have already been able to reap the benefits of using CM WebClient to move business applications to mobile. United Heritage Life Insurance agents now use mobile devices to help their clients select the right policy options.

“Apple’s move today to enhanced security should set a benchmark for all mobile developers. CM First looks forward to helping customers exploit the new features in their app development with CM WebClient,” said Christoph Heinrich, CEO.
CM WebClient provides a rich internet application (RIA) generator which works with the CA Plex model-based rapid application development platform. Transform legacy business applications efficiently and easily with no need to recode or retrain developers. The new release of CM WebClient provides the most-requested capabilities to give companies the power to compete on the mobile battlegrounds.
