Onymos has come forward with what it calls a mobile application development platform for developers to create feature-rich ‘no compromise’ mobile apps based on open standards.
The latest version includes support for Augmented Reality, Deep Linking and enhanced bio-authentication.
NOTE: In the context of the World Wide Web, deep linking is the use of a hyperlink that links to a specific, generally searchable or indexed, piece of web content on a website, rather than the website’s home page.
Onymos Fabric apps can incorporate hardware and software technologies of both the Android and iOS device platforms.
Shuffle off shortcomings
The company claims that Onymos addresses the shortcomings of the two popular approaches used by thousands of mobile app developers:
- Assembling and stitching together a set of tools and services, which is time-consuming and complicated.
- Using no-code/low-code solutions that lock them into a proprietary, cookie-cutter approach and do not offer precise control of their final code.
Rather than limit developers to pre-defined functionality or building blocks that are isolated to a single layer of the development stack, Onymos Fabric is supposed to provide fully customisable core components that give developers complete and integrated access to the full technology stack of the user interface, business logic and backend-as-a-service.
“With Onymos Fabric, enterprises no longer have to worry about mobile OS updates, new devices and feature enhancement… and building and maintaining core mobile functions. Onymos Fabric handles all these potentially time-consuming development tasks for you,” said the company, in a press statement.
Onymos Fabric has also been used to create a new app that helps eye doctors to diagnose eye problems associated with diabetes. There is a causal link between high blood pressure and retinal damage that leads to vision problems. Dr. Einar Stefansson, a physician in the field of diabetic eye disease and diabetic screening, saw the need to provide healthcare professionals with an accurate and convenient tool to evaluate individual risk for sight-threatening retinopathy based on a patient’s clinical state.
Onymos Fabric provides a palette of customisable core components that includes user interface widgets, logic, services and backend data stores.
