Mobile Location on iOS and Android

The PodCast at Delphi.org – Most Android and iOS devices either include a GPS antenna, the ability to triangulate off cellular or wireless access points, or some combination. Accessing the location is different when using the platform APIs for iOS and Android. Luckily Delphi XE5 includes the TLocationSensor component. When ...

Delphi and Productivity

TURBU Tech – If you haven’t seen Gabr’s latest post about Delphi language features, it’s worth looking at. I don’t agree with everything he posted, but he’s got some good points. But he’s also got some annoying problems in the comments department.  Some obnoxious troll is ...

Delphi for (Some) Android

Te Waka o Delphi – Embarcadero have blogged about the first Android app “in the wild” (actually, being on the Play store I think it’s the first domesticated app – wild ones surely get side-loaded ? ). Rather embarrassingly they already have a comment from someone unable to use this “true ...

A Backup Solution That Just Works

Te Waka o Delphi – In a comment on my Shaggy Dog story yesterday commenter Iztok gently chastised me for not having backups of my VM’s. Ironically I did. The problem is that my backup strategy is so silently effective that I completely forgot I had it ! Having been reminded, I thought it might be worth sharing. ...

Delphi for Android app spotted in the wild

Idle Musings of a Delphi Junkie – I have spotted what I think may be the first Delphi for Android app to make it into the Google Play store. It’s an app developed by Brian Hamilton, which displays data from weather stations, and is a port of his existing iOS version (if you can call a single source, multi-platform app a port ...

Android Application Events

Lars Fosdal – There are a few differences between a Windows App and an Android App that puzzled me initially. Why doesn't my application get FocusChanged Activate/Deactivate or Close when switching between or terminating apps on Android? In this post I also test out Google+'s new support for embedding G+ posts ...

A Shaggy Dog Goes for a Breath of Fresh Air

Te Waka o Delphi – It has been a frustrating week for me in some regards. It all started with the news of Microsoft acquiring Nokia. At first I paid it no real attention. I have never had a Windows Phone and my few experiences of Windows on any sort of mobile or handheld device had not left me particularly […]

A few XE5-related bits

Delphi Haven – With XE5 now out, I’ve updated my FMX TClipboard and Mac PDF writer code to compile with it, and in the case of the latter, also made an unrelated fix suggested by Sebastian Zierer. With respect to TClipboard, I must add the caveat that the Android implementation merely delegates to the ...

Movie #95 - Margins and Padding Confusion

LearnDelphi.TV – In this YouTube video I take a look at the fact that depending on what version of Delphi and if you are using FireMonkey or the VCL, the definitions of Margins and Padding on controls are different.  Up until Delphi XE4, the usage of Margins and Padding in FireMonkey was reversed to that of the VCL, ...

Not so Special Upgrade Pricing for XE5

Te Waka o Delphi – XE5 is officially out today, and the online store now has pricing for the new release. Being a scant 6 months since XE4 was released, with a $49 special upgrade price for XE3 Pro customers, I looked to see what special price might be on offer for XE5. $499 is the answer. On the face […]

Geolocation for XE5 not Working?

TPersistent.com – I just checked to see if the XE5 World Tour had been expanded to include any cities on the west coast of Canada and they have!  Apparently my previous post has gone unaddressed, even though I pointed out on August 23rd that the XE5 World Tour map was blatantly wrong and misleading, it remains ...
