Embarcadero Technologies, a provider of software solutions for application and database development, has announced the availability of RAD Studio XE5, a multi-language, multi-device, and multi-database application development suite, now with iOS and Android support.
RAD Studio XE5 is the only solution on the market that provides true native, CPU executable code on all four leading computing platforms — OS X, Windows, iOS and Android — while managing one codebase, one team, and one schedule without sacrificing app quality, connectivity or performance, according to Michael Swindell, Embarcadero senior vice president of products. It enables users to create true native apps for computers, tablets, and smartphones and get them to app stores and enterprises fast, he adds.
True native apps run directly on the device hardware with no scripting or interpretive layers. A new survey by Dimensional Research released today, shows that while 85% of Windows developers are tasked with developing mobile apps and 85% prefer native apps, only 17% believe they can reasonably deliver native mobile apps for two or more platforms.
