MobiForms is a Rapid Application Development (RAD) tool for developing Java based mobile applications for wireless PDAs running Tablet PC, Pocket PC, Windows CE, Windows Mobile, EPOC, Symbian, or Palm. With MobiForms you do not need to know a single line of Java. MobiForms is an intuitive graphical drag and drop development environment.

Many developers use highly productive tools like Oracle Developer or PowerBuilder and do not want to use Java because it is seen as a low level language with hundreds of difficult commands and syntax. With Java it can take days or even weeks to create usable applications. MobiForms solves this problem by doing the Java programming for developers. Applications can be developed in minutes instead of days. MobiForms creates and uses the simple Forms Mark-up Language (FML) files instead of complex JAR files.
