Technical platform


SUP server and
WorkSpace

easy
and
quick to install.


Platform updates are delivered quite fast


Comes
with full
development
environment
(pretty complex though to
get start with).


Up to date documentation available.


User interface


On SUP 2.0 the generated UI was quite
buggy but 2.0.1 (and 2.1) brought lots of
fixed and enhancements.


With
jQuery

Mobile
the UI can be made
surprisingly nice looking. Can be a bit
heavy but you can adjust the level of
enhancements (shadows, gradients etc
.)


Fully
customizable


Heterogenous device support


Same
workflows delivered
and used on
both iPhone4 and Android 2.2 phone
.
