You know how when you’re building an app, you have a few steps that you always have to do that are just annoying? Get a service, get a key, get an SDK, add some lines of code, rinse and repeat. What if you didn’t have to do any of that? What if you could start developing your app starting from the fun part – the part where you’re adding your spin on it and bringing a never before seen innovation into the app stores?
Guess what? You can. Introducing the next generation of Mobile Development on Bluemix.
In our latest release of the Bluemix Mobile dashboard, you can add and use the Push Notifications, Mobile Analytics (Beta), and Mobile Client Access services directly from the dashboard. We also introduced two ways to start a new project – UI Starters and Code Starters. We’ve simplified the process of creating a mobile app so you can get up and running in minutes!
Get moving fast with UI Starters
If you want to start from designing the UI of your project, choose a UI Starter. You’ll be able to build out your application’s interface, and we’ll generate the code to match. Code can be generated for Android, Objective-C, and Swift.
Want to begin with code? Get moving with Code Starters
If you’d rather go directly to the code, choose a Code Starter. You’ll get everything you need to start working – SDKs and initializers baked in. A couple of lines of code and you’re all set to develop your mobile app. We even have starters that will spring board you into an app that uses IBM Watson and Data services.
Of course, if you’re interested in adding capabilities into an existing code base, our SDKs are available on all of your favorite package management tools.
We also launched a new Getting Started page in the Mobile dashboard, where you can easily get updates on services, new tutorials, UI Starters, and Code Starters. Check back often to stay current with new features.
