Allow users to easily analyze and edit data of any complexity on their iPhone or iPad. Unlimited master-detail drill down, customizable list or detail forms, integrated native iOS maps, interactive charts, data sorting, grouping, filtering and text search functionality – everything is made available via an intuitive interface.
The DevExpress DataExplorer provides a unique way of building native iOS data-driven applications without having to write a single line of code. Developers or power users can connect to OData web services and DataExplorer will automatically generate the default UI for all available data tables, their relationships and built-in parameterized queries. The UI editor then allows you to specify each entity’s availability, presentation style and navigation paths to related entities. You can then resize and rename UI elements, predefine default filter conditions, sort order, data grouping and parameter values for functions. Each view additionally provides its own set of customization options.
Onсe the app has been set up, you can share it with anyone else who has the DataExplorer installed. Advanced users can continue adjusting the interface.
