Using the PC Soft AML products gives you all the tools you need for design, development, mock-up, documentation, 5GL RAD, release, tune-up, testing, translation, distribution and maintenance on software projects.

The WinDev products are the only suite of products currently in the market that allow companies to cut costs while catering for the exploding amount of computing and presentation platforms available, by compiling shared source code to different native application formats.

From one codebase, a developer can build native applications for Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows Mobile, Pocket PC and Windows CE, and also compile code to Win32, Win64, .Net, Java, PHP and xCode, to name a few.

This new version brings new features to your teams that will make them even more efficient in a constantly evolving world.

New controls, improvements, NFC, support for Windows 8 and its new interface are all part of the 918 new features found in version 18.

The user of an application developed in WinDev benefits automatically from features (the AAF) such as:

* Reports and queries editor, exporting to Word, Excel or OpenOffice, creating PDFs, sending e-mails, resizable windows, 3D graphs, calculations, etc, all this with 0 lines of code from the developer.
