On the mobile platform, LyteCube is the first to offer a platform on which you can create a custom mobile database application without writing code.
LyteMobile is the runtime environment to launch and run RADlets on mobile phones. These are miniature versions of the desktop applications. LyteMobile is also designed to work as a standalone mobile phone application. Users can design and build mobile database applications on the mobile phone itself. It contains a built-in table designer and a RADlet designer. More sophisticated mobile applications can be created using LyteRAD Pro on the desktop and then installed on the phone.
You don't need a very high-end phone either. LyteMobile runs on any J2ME enabled phone with storage facility like memory cards or in-phone memory. LyteMobile does not need GPRS connectivity, as it contains a lightweight embedded database for storage. GPRS is needed only to synchronise data between desktop applications and to access the application-gallery.
The new version of LyteMobile 2.2 was launched on October 1, 2008 and comes with one click access to a RADlet gallery with ready-to-use applications for both personal and business use. Business applications range from retail store inventory management to micro-sales tools for pharma executives. The new version also allows image capture from an in-phone camera, which is very helpful in many kinds of applications. For example, an insurance executive recording details of an accident, can attach a picture of it.
LyteRAD is very useful for building personal or in-house database driven solutions, with little programming knowledge. Among those who will benefit by it, are:
"LyteRAD is the first of its kind in India. There are a handful of firms that apply the same concept of re-usable frameworks to building Web 2.0 and online-hosted applications (e.g., Coghead, Zoho and Iceberg). But there are none that create fully functional standalone applications for the desktop," declares Bellalcheru.
Talking further about the utility of LyteMobile 2.2, he says, "First of all, mobile phones hardly have any applications for the business segment (other than for communication), and more importantly, there is no easy way to build custom solutions without technical knowledge of the mobile domain. So we expect this product to open up a host of opportunities for people to accept mobile phones as a serious business tool, and people will start experimenting with building their business applications on the phone. Field executives who need access to data in remote locations will find this invaluable. They can always update information and sync up at a later point in time."
