    Sometimes back, IBM mentioned that they are bringing an Application Designer, like desktop version of Maximo
    Since then there is no news...
    Does anyone has any info on that front?

    IBM has released a new mobile product, Maximo Mobile, where their future investments will be focused. This converges the mobile and work center platform together and is really a new platform. This doesn't have feature parity with Maximo Anywhere yet nor does it have a GUI application designer currently. IBM is planning and working on both of those objectives. Currently it supports Inspections and Work Order functionality, but does not support Asset, SR, nor Inventory functionality. This new product is licensed as part of the Maximo Application Suite so it will require different licensing.

    I have only heard of such application designer concept for mobility coming in the new Maximo Mobile product, not for Maximo Anywhere.

    Not sure to what you are referring specifically.  For Anywhere there was never an announcement by IBM for an "Application Designer".  Several years ago TRM created and marketed a tool for Anywhere to do more of a GUI based designer.  I think it was called Anywhere Builder. I do not recall it getting much traction in the market.

    The new Maximo Mobile application is being created and has just been related to the market.  It uses a desktop Docker container to perform the builds, and you can preview it using a browser to see you changes immediately.  As Steven Shull notes the tool is not yet to Maximo Anywhere Parity (on an app feature basis) and does not yet have a GUI designer tool.  Both are on the roadmap.
