Collaborative visualization software vendor iRise has announced the launch of its iRise 8.11 platform. The latest upgrade adds device emulators for iPhone 5, Windows 8 Phone, and Android tablet compatibility. As the only visualization platform that supports simulations for the iPhone 5, its makers also single it out for being able to review those simulations from iPhone 5 devices using the latest iRise mobile app.
The firm says that its new release was fueled by the "consumerization of IT" trend — a development that has been widely agreed to created pressure within organizations to produce apps more quickly, with less cost and with a much higher level of usability and design aesthetic.
iRise 8.11 includes new features for creating interactive simulations quicker and this (say its makers) makes collaboration easier and helps "jumpstart the code writing process" — whether for mobile, web, or desktop apps.
Data is now automatically captured in user input fields. When an action is executed that has data flow from a widget on the page, the data is captured automatically to save users time. The development team also included "pixel perfect" image options; i.e., when resizing an image from a corner drag handle, an image's aspect ratio is maintained for a more accurate simulation of the final product.
