Written by Jim McKeeth on Posted in Articles

RAD AndroidI hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving, and survived the Black Friday/Cyber Monday marketing deluge. I was so busy catching up with family and eating too much that I’m just now announcing Embarcadero’s October Cool App contest winner is RAD Android, an app that makes it easy for people to develop mobile programs.

RAD Android, created by talented developer Abdalkader, is a tiny programming language for the Android operating system that allows anyone to write simple programs for Android devices from an Android device. These apps leverage wireless capabilities such as Bluetooth, SMS and Wi-Fi so people can create a wide variety of useful smartphone tools. They can also communicate with the Arduino open source electronics platform to enable makers and tinkerers of all levels to develop an array of imaginative tools and projects such as digital scientific instruments or home tools like an automatic guitar tuner.

Using Delphi to create an application development solution, even a tiny one, is a significant undertaking. RAD Android is an amazing example of how native development can unlock the power of the Android platform, given a dedicated and talented developer with the right skills and tools for the job.
