Snappii now enables web service integration into mobile iOS and Android mobile business apps. Due to this brand new functionality, it is now possible for Snappii customers to connect native mobile business apps with different web services. There’s no need to be a programmer or have any development skills to be able to create an XML data connector and add a web service to an app. Snappii team has already made some sample XML connectors that any user can try and figure out how it works. Among these connectors are:
- Currency Rate
To be able to connect an app to any web service Snappii users need to get a full documentation on the web service they are planning to use. Creating a “connector” for a web service is a necessary condition. Some of the widely spread web services documentations are available on apigee.com/providers.
As well such web services as Vimeo or SalesForce and others provide this information in their API developer documentation on their websites.
App development requires that developers learn many new programming languages and tools. Objective C, for example, is only used on iOS devices and was not popular until Apple mobile devices became popular, so few programmers know the language. This is the same with Java for Android, even though it is a little more popular, most programmers are not Java programmers. Therefore, the big issue is that 97% of developers in enterprise-size businesses do not yet have mobile programming skills, which is a key reason why app requests are being addressed so slowly.
