What's new in Swift Release 23 in January?

Swift Release 23 – January features the following capabilities:


With this release of Swift, users may now benefit from the latest menu designer functionality, which makes it simple to further refine the menu to improve findability and provide a uniform experience across devices.


Simply open your Swift App Designer Studio, click the Edit icon, scroll down, and tap the “click to configure” option.

The menu Designer will display after you tap on it, and all you have to do is drag and drop items and change the names of your sub-menus according to your preference.

OCR Capabilities

This release of Swift, introduces the OCR functionality. Business Analysts can drag-drop the OCR control on the Swift apps. Using the OCR control, end-users can convert the images into text using Optical Character Recognition and save time and increase accuracy in data entry.

More Robust Offline Capability

With this release of Swift, Users can now use the Swift app even if they don’t have internet connectivity. Both the applications and data is cached for offline use. You can not only navigate through the cached data in the offline mode but can also perform offline transactions. All offline transactions get queued to be synchronized in the First Come First Serve basis. When the device finds connectivity, it automatically marks the user back online and provides the ability to synch the transactions.

Enhanced iOS and Android apps

The ability to create “disposable” experimental processes and apps opens up the untapped potential of the enterprise to address business problems with an unprecedented agility and positive innovation energy.

How Swift provides the game-changing capability?

Most low-code, no-code platforms evolved as the next-phase of the original development tools, built a decade or two ago, and still follow the same development mindset in their DNA. Although they’ve tried their best to make them easy for the business analysts and the users, majority have fallen short.

To bring about the real paradigm shift and benefits of a low-code/no-code platform, a grounds-up rethinking was required to work at a meta-data level, and incorporate at the core of the architecture, the latest and greatest advancements in web and mobile technologies, integration, security, analytics and cloud-based server frameworks.
