I believe Ashley said this is coming soon after the new C3 runtime.

Yes, why not.

Order system + woocommerce backend

Job listing + php backend

Directory + QR scan with wordpress directory system

Pro and con compare to native or code base app:

Pros
- Fast prototype and build time
- animation and layout did a great job

Cons
- Slow with large data
- Huge APK file
- less support of native function

Hope there is a auto scroll container plugin or component in the future.
This is the hardest part when creating business app.

I agree. It can be done using workarounds, but it can take up so much time to just make this simple function. Maybe you should file a feature request for that.

I made a fully functional piece of "Point of Sale" software using C2. A friend of mine opened a fish/aquarium store and had nothing to run his sales... so I used C2 to make something that has fully inventory control, transaction history... and even interfaces with a barcode scanner, receipt printer and cash drawer...

Yes C2/C3 can do a LOT more than just making games!

cool guys for the inputs! actually i hope this might evolved sooner. I researched some app building softwares-they may be reliable but this is a first that i encountered such capabilities importing to different platforms. I haven't fully scrutinized C2 yet but i think there's an option for advanced users to tinker with the coding?
