I’ve been thinking this would be pretty neat for a while now (it may just be me) but I wanted to see if other people had this same interest. I tend to be on my phone quite a bit (whether I’m using Windows Mobile or Android) and I haven’t found any UML Modeling applications (not even mentioning a full blown CASE tool) . I could try porting over a open source UML tool to accomplish this, but I would much rather see a company’s product, especially a company where I already use some of their products.
I think it would be pretty sweet porting over a version of Visual Paradigm UML 8.0 (or below) to either Android, Windows Mobile, IPhone, etc. It might just be me, but I think it would beneficial not to have to pull out my laptop and fire up Visual Paradigm if I want to make a sudden addition to a VP project. If I was in the elevator or walking down the street and get a sudden idea that I would like to implement, sure I can add a note on my phone and look at the note when I have a workstation available but how awesome would it be to be able to make those changes, save that file and be able to sync those changes to my workstation through my phone?
Maybe I’m just a tech enthusiast, but I would find that highly beneficial as a developer.
Just before the haters start rolling in:
A. I know each mobile OS is completely different with each of their own specific SDK’s.
A workaround would be to use a Mobile OS standard like Java FX OR develop for each independent Mobile OS (very limiting).
B. Visual Paradigm is highly integrated with Java and the specs on a Mobile Phone wouldn’t handle it
Optimizations could be made to decrease amount of memory used, certain features that wouldn’t be needed could be stripped away.
There’s a lot more that I’m missing, but keeping in mind that it is just something I would like to see come to fruition and don’t expect to see (at least within this or possibly next year). With that in mind what does everybody think?
