Mobile Enhancements made in Application Express 5.0 for mobile
Support for jQuery Mobile reflow table and column toggle has been incorporated. These features allow for flexible rendering of reports / tables, which scale to the available screen width. Reflow table switches to a vertical / stacked view on smaller screen, while the column toggle allows for prioritized display of certain column, and includes a column picker that allows customers to select any column they wish to see.
Ability to create a page as a modal or non-modal page has been introduced. A modal page does not allow the end user to select the underlying page (page is greyed out), whereas, they can select the underlying page with non-modal pages. These new modal and non-modal page types have the same declarative capabilities as normal pages with respect to defining regions, processes, branches, and so forth.
Navigation lists are a modern alternative to tabs. They allow to render a menu similar to the drop-menu in the APEX Builder, at a designated position on the page and provide navigation links to other pages in the application. Themes support either traditional tabs or navigation lists. Once an application is created using a theme that supports navigation lists, all wizards will show options appropriate for this type of navigation instead of the traditional tab options shown.
A brand new IDE for enhancing and maintaining pages. As opposed the Component View and Tree View, where you must continually open new dialogs to update components, with the Page Designer there is a tree, Grid Layout and Property Editor which are kept in sync and allow you to update any attributes without leaving the IDE.
