On The Shoulders of Giants…

Te Waka o Delphi – When discussing mobile device application development using Oxygene or other RemObjects Elements technologies, the question of user interface designers doesn’t usually take long to come up (particularly with Delphi developers). Up to now the answer has always been Xcode Interface Builder for ...

Visual Studio Pro for just $0 !!!

Te Waka o Delphi – Not exactly hot off the presses but some people apparently seem still to be unaware that my suggestion for a Community Edition of Delphi has been picked up (some years later, mind you). Except that it isn’t Embarcadero that have picked it up, but Microsoft. The Deal Just Got Better Some might ...

Zombie Apps (not) in the Apple App Store

Te Waka o Delphi – In the run up to the announcement of the new iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch, Apple also revamped iTunes Connect, the portal through which apps are submitted to the App Store. Unfortunately the new interface has a number of problems which I spent wasted hours dealing with yesterday. Beginning at the ...

The BDE is Finally, Properly (Almost) Dead

Te Waka o Delphi – As of the XE7 release of Delphi/RAD Studio, the long deprecated BDE is finally dead. And almost properly this time. From the “What’s New in XE7” page: BDE, our oldest database solution, has reached the final stage of deprecation, and has been removed from RAD Studio. This includes ...

Sign Here Please… (Using This Specific Pen)

Te Waka o Delphi – My original Android version of TXT-2-PARK has been in the Google Play Store for a little over a week now. But it was only on Saturday that I decided to install the release version onto my phone from the store itself, and found a problem. The application would download just fine, but at the point ...

While I Was Waiting For Apple…

Te Waka o Delphi – So Saturday morning I finished the iOS version of my application and published it to the App Store. Of all of the app stores, the approval process with Apple evidently takes the longest. So, whilst waiting for my app to be released, I developed (and published) the Windows Phone version of my app. ...

Oxygene Constructor Magic on Cocoa

Te Waka o Delphi – Earlier this week I mentioned that I had published my TXT-2-PARK app for Android in the Google Play Store. Today I published the iOS version to the Apple App Store (still awaiting approval at this stage). As with the Android version, I implemented the iOS version using Oxygene, and things proved a ...

Small Post, for a (Very) Small App

Te Waka o Delphi – On Saturday I was out and about with my family and found myself inspired to write an app. By Sunday evening, it was done and in the Google Play store. We were in an area of Auckland called Parnell and needed to park the car on street, where a fairly standard “pay and display” system ...

Nullable Types. Not!

Te Waka o Delphi – I recently mentioned that RemObjects have placed their OS X native IDE – a.k.a. Fire – into public beta. I haven’t been using it myself (yet) but have been following developments in the RemObjects Talk forums with interest, and a new feature in the Elements 8.0 compiler (also part ...

Visual Studio Pro for Just $45 !!

Te Waka o Delphi – It’s true. Visual Studio Professional can be had for as little as $45, though it can take a little digging to find this option. And there is a catch (or two). It’s available at this price through Visual Studio Online. And the first catch is… it’s a subscription. That $45 is ...

Making a Noise About on a Thread

Te Waka o Delphi – I’m working on an Android app at the moment, and for a bit of fun I decided to add a startup sound to brighten the day of every user that launches it. Which gives me another opportunity to present some of the advanced language features in Oxygene that make threading such a breeze. First of ...

Delayed POST Response

Te Waka o Delphi – Way back in September last year, Mason Wheeler blogged about his first experiences with developing for Android using Oxygene. I said at the time that I would look into reproducing his efforts and respond. I didn’t get around to that right away and, as I think I have mentioned previously, then ...

Did you get the Memo ?

Te Waka o Delphi – People looking for a cheap Android tablet have a new option from a respected player: The Asus Pad 7 Although not exactly falling over themselves in excitement (it is an entry level, budget device after all), reviewers are finding a lot to like in this device. But Delphi developers hoping to sell ...

Come on Baby Light My Fire

Te Waka o Delphi – These are exciting times in the mobile development space, especially for followers of RemObjects work. Whilst the likes of Xamarin and Embarcadero pursue their cross-platform abstractions, with varying degrees of success, RemObjects have been focussing on delivering genuinely native solutions and ...

When You Say Nothing At All…

Te Waka o Delphi – This is another one of those posts that has a bit of a double meaning in the same title. First, there is the matter of a useful hint/warning that I think could be emitted by a Pascal compiler. The other is what I have been up to in recent months that I have been so […]
