iOS “Support” Prior to XE4 ?

Te Waka o Delphi – Some people have taken issue with my chagrin at the way in which iOS support has been mis-handled in Delphi, implying or in some cases directly stating, that iOS was only ever in beta before and so I had no right to expect “real” product to be delivered at no extra cost. I take issue ...

Cross platform anonymous threads and progress notification

Idle Musings of a Delphi Junkie – Reading Anders Ohlsson’s latest blog post about using iOS APIs we don’t wrap reminded me of another couple of helper classes that I created, and which ship with the RAD Studio XE4 samples.

Use the Power of Delphi Carefully – Please!

Olaf Monien – Now that EMBT gave us Delphi for iOS, a.k.a. RAD Studio XE4, we got a quite powerful tool (not just) for developing iOS Apps in our hands.

Delphi XE4 and AnsiString

Behind the connection – I already ported a lot of my applications to Delphi XE4. This represent hundreds of thousands lines of code. All in all this was very easy, coming from XE3.
