Embarcadero Technologies announced the latest release of their Appmethod for active subscribers and new Appmethod developers. The Appmethod enables developers to build highly connected apps for the Internet-of-Things (Io) using a single app development platform and shared C++ codebase. According to Embarcadero, the Appmethod September 2014 Release provides a complete software development solution for building natively compiled C++ apps that connect mobile and desktop devices, sensors, gadgets, wearables, cloud services, and data.
Embarcadero said that App developers can now create dynamic, highly responsive designs across any device or form factor using Appmethod's new FireUI Multi-Device Designer and user interface (UI) components. Using the latest release of Appmethod, developers can build apps for Android, iOS, Windows and OS X that interconnect with IoT via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi app tethering. Appmethod's integrated wireless support works with thousands of "off-the- shelf" consumer and industry-specific devices, added Embarcadero.
Appmethod also provides the New Enterprise Mobility Services that deliver an out-of-the-box app mobility middleware server for connecting to private cloud data and custom APIs. The turnkey middleware solution can easily be deployed on premise, or into a private cloud by a development team and provides a set of application services, including user authentication, analytics, encrypted embedded and server storage, custom API management, and Mobile Enterprise SQL database connectivity, all over industry standard REST/JSON.
The Appmethod is available immediately from appmethod.com while the free version, which allows developers to build and distribute Android phone apps for free, can be downloaded from appmethod.com/sign-up.
