Access Your Screens from iPads, iPhones and Other Mobile Devices
Presto includes many built-in features that make it easier for your users to access your web-enabled IBM i (AS/400) green screens internally or remotely from tablets and smartphones.
Presto includes a web page layout for iPad, iPhone and Android devices. When a user accesses a web-enabled green screen on a tablet or handheld device, Presto automatically detects the device type and displays the mobile layout.
Presto's out-of-the-box mobile layout hides the header and removes some images to optimize performance.
Keyboard for Function Keys
Presto includes a custom virtual keyboard for function keys. This is significant because some mobile devices, including iPhones and iPads, don't have function keys on their keyboards, an integral part of almost every green screen application.
Enhance the Mobile Versions of Screens
You can use the Visual Editor or edit the HTML to further enhance screens for mobile devices. If you are customizing screens for mobile devices you can use the same Presto environment for both the desktop and mobile layouts or you can create separate environments for them. The more different you want to make them, the more likely you'll want separate environments.
Mobile Optimization with jQuery
You can use jQuery Mobile with Presto for a more mobile-optimized layout. jQuery Mobile is an HTML5-based user interface framework that is shipped with Presto and built on the popular jQuery and jQuery UI libraries. It requires making changes to the HTML but provides a modern mobile design that is easily themeable.
Presto screens use standard web technologies which makes the screens accessible from browsers on mobile devices. You do not need to deploy the screens from the App Store and changes to your screens are instantly seen by your users.
