This page describes the new features of the Smart Devices Generator in X Evolution 3.
Now GeneXus also generates Offline Mobile Applications capable of synchronizing with a central server. This new feature solves common situations for apps in Points of Sales, Events or in scenarios of limited or no Internet connectivity, automatically synchronizing the information stored in the device to the database and vice versa. With this you retain the ability to execute transactions in Enterprise-class Mobile Apps without connection.
