The default Mobile Theme (50) in APEX renders just fine in Safari. It uses the full height of my iPhone 5, but when I added the app to my Home screen and ran it from there, it didn't render in fullscreen mode.

The warm days are coming... time for some APEX Ice Cream!
People in my close environment, they know I can't resist ice cream and chocolate!
So what I did was I bought a real ice cream machine, so I could make my ice cream myself :-)
After reading Michael Hichwa's blog post
about APEX 4.2.2 where he mentions the patch set includes a major upgrade of all 18 productivity and all 16 database sample applications, I decided to install all of them again and check them out.
Those apps are a great way to (more...)

Now that the Oracle Cloud is publicly available, I want to show you what it takes to put your APEX application on there.
