and e-mail individuals or groups of people.
Then distribute your applications on Apple Macintosh and/or Microsoft Windows computers, over any computer network (including the Internet), CD-ROM, DVD even floppy disk!
What's so great about that?
While you can create software that runs over the
Web, you are not required to have an Internet connection
as part of the development or delivery process. This
means you can develop computer applications for the
millions of computers not connected to the Internet.
Because applications created with onViz are self-contained,
programs run independently of Web Browsers, thus avoiding
the intricacies of dealing with different browsers
and plug-ins to make content look the same on everyone’s
onViz is designed to supplement web-based tools and
provide another choice for how you want to communicate.
It enables you to build applications that run independently
of the Web, yet at the same time you can develop your
applications for Web delivery.
Creating a software program is as simple as drawing
a line between graphical elements on a flowchart
all without having to write a single line of programming
