The truly great innovation of WP is plugins. They let content developers concentrate on what they do best. WP App Studio allows system analysts to design plugins that work, without endless months of coding. Basically, if you can imagine it, you can build it with WP App Studio. You want a custom application to track workflow for your small manufacturing business? Yeah, it can do that. Need to monitor habitat restoration activities for 2,000 acre wildlife preserve? No problem. Create a sophisticated political opposition research? Piece of cake. WP is a database driven software development environment for web development. WP App Studio is the first plugin I have seen that gets that very basic concept and so fully exploits its strength. The tool is very powerful, so it takes time to learn how to exploit all that power. Once mastered, this toolset dramatically speeds up web development. It can easily reduce time to launch by a factor or four times or more. Basically, you jump from design pretty much directly to testing. So, where is the fifth star?? As powerful as this toolset is, the documentation, training and customer support just do not measure up. If eMarketDesign gets those things right, there is no telling how much WP App Studio could change the Internet. If that sounds like hyperbole, it’s not.

This is a pretty cool plugin overall. It makes it easy to develop simple apps with just a little programming. I have a couple of complaints, however. First, you can’t do much with the basic license, they kinda force you into using an expensive monthly subscription to the “Pro Dev” license. Being a bit of a newbie, I did not know this. I also purchased a connection that I am not even sure I can use. Second, support is slow if existent at all.

Deberia al menos permitir generar una app basica sin tener que pagar por una licencia, intente hacer una muy sencilla y no pude ni ver como se mostraba en mi sitio al no dejarme generarla, creo que pagar por algo que no puedes ni probar es una estafa. Es por eso que no puedo ni darle dos estrellas.

Great application, very good indeed, I am translating to Portuguese from Brazil in order to facilitate the use and development of applications in the land. Congratulations to the WP App Studio team.

I had this plugin on my bookmarks for years… Finally I landed a project to test it out. I thought the project and WPAS were going to be a piece of cake. It kind of was but it took longer than I spected… WPAS is a very complete suite for creating complete control / collaboration solutions. There’s always a learning curve but you get examples, docs and something I’ve abused even having Pro-Dev: support. I’m listing some suggestions for anyone who’s interested in using WPAS: Have a separate WP Install for working on your app design (where WPAS will be installed) Working with themes and other plugins adds difficulty. Go easy on other plugins and there’s a theme by EMD you can use (can’t find it at the moment, google it!) Complicated data structures may be difficult to migrate, make sure you format your files correctly You need to understand you’ll be sending your design to WPAS/EMD servers to -generate- your plugin which takes 3 to 5 minutes every time. You may design large apps but if you’re just starting with WPAS (or moreover, you’re new to app design) keep it simple and small and go one step at the time I strongly recommend WPAS for non-mission-critical applications/solutions for small business or group of users to control/share/manage document centered processes… like office automation apps: inquiries, registration, resource sharing (like meeting rooms), errands, vacations, hiring, contracts or events.

Impressiona a facilidade de aprendizado com um pouco de paciência para aprender a tela. Muito bom. Tem entidades, relacionamentos, formulários, views, etc. Depois de tudo montado, gerar um novo plugin com toda a customização é fantástico. Parabéns!
