Over the summer – and intensively over the last couple of weeks a small team of volunteers (myself, @jacobkhan, @frederikvig) have been hard at work taking MobilePack to the next level! We’ve put together what we feel is a pretty solid, fully-featured v. 0.9 Beta of it. Some might even feel it deserves the “stable” stamp, but since the project is 100% dependent on jQuery Mobile, we don’t feel we can call it stable until jQuery Mobile is.
In short, MobilePack is an easy way to make a fully-featured, personalized, mobile web site/app based on EPiServer CMS 6 R2, that can easily repurpose content from your regular web site, redirect mobile traffic, and at the same time offer advanced mobile functionality as well as intuitive touch-based navigation. It can be used both out-of-the-box, or customized to give it your personal touch and specific functionality.
It’s released as open-source, so it’s free and easy for anyone to use – as long as you have an EPiServer CMS 6 R2 to run it on. Several organizations are already live with mobile apps on MobilePack – if you have made one, we’d love to hear from you – either on the MobilePack Codeplex site – through email – or as a comment to this blog post!
Ok – enough marketing talk. Let’s have a look at what’s new in this beta:
