Market trend data clearly shows Mobile is now the dominant platform for end-user engagement, with Android the biggest platform on the market today. It is, therefore, more important than ever to have a mobile strategy in place as part of a complete software vision.
When looking to develop a mobile application, a number of key considerations come into play, (Covered in the White Paper – RAD Studio Guide For Managers).
- From a User Perspective view: which platforms to target and the user experience you want to provide the end-user.
- From a Security and Compliance view: you need to think of the security of the data you will be accessing and storing and the risk of hackers modifying your application dependencies.
- From a Development and Maintenance view: how to develop, test, and maintain applications that support the above while controlling the costs of development.
In short, the white paper shows that for the best end-user experience, and to comply with tough data security rules, the only way to go is true native applications when it comes to mobile, and if you are reading this blog, you are probably setting foot along that part right now.
I would therefore like to invite you to watch the replay of the “Building your first Native Mobile Applications for iOS and Android” webinar of Monday 14th June, where I dive into RAD Studio way for developing applications with your first mobile application for Android and iOS. We look at how the FireMonkey (FMX) framework in RAD Studio uniquely offers capabilities that help developers achieve true native application development from a single codebase, while targeting multiple platforms. We also talk about tips and tricks for laying out UI design as we build our very first simple sample.
Beyond this webinar, I highly encourage you to access the free courses on https://learndelphi.org/ and check out https://www.embarcaderoacademy.com/ when you are ready to upskill further into the world of mobile development.
