RAD Server - Looking ahead to 2017

Written by Sarina D on . Posted in News

In today’s post, I wanted to share some details on the great plans we have in store for RAD Server. While Berlin 10.1.2 is great, my favorite development in 2016 is RAD Server.

RAD Server is our turn-key application foundation for rapidly building and deploying services based applications (self-hosted PaaS). RAD Server enables developers to quickly build new application back-ends or migrate existing Delphi or C++ client/server business logic to a modern services based architecture that is open, stateless, secure and scalable. With RAD Server, you can simply load Delphi and C++ business logic methods into RAD Server, add some users, and go.

Written by Marco Cantu, RAD PM on . Posted in News

Embarcadero has just release updates for the XE8 and 10 Seattle versions of Delphi, C++Builder, and RAD Studio, available to customers with an active update subscription. This is part of the ongoing initiative to make available fixes done in newer versions (in this case 10.1 Berlin and its updates) to customers still on previous versions, something we informally call "back-porting".

Cool App Winner: EarMaster for iPad

Written by Jim McKeeth on . Posted in News

Our new cool app contest winner is EarMaster for iPad. It is developed with Delphi and shares much of its code with the desktop versions that run on macOS and Windows. EarMaster is all about musical training.


 
Overview video
 
EarMaster for iPad is an iPad app for musical training: sight singing, sight reading, rhythm training, music theory and ear training (hearing intervals, chords, etc). With almost 3000 lessons made by music teachers covering the full range from beginners to professional musicians playing any instrument.

Technology video
 
As a comprehensive consumer grade app, it both contains a lot of functionality and uses many different technologies. Despite that it is very advanced a lot of effort went into making it as simple and intuitive as possible. It has a 100% native feeling and follows the Apple GUI guidelines as close as possible.
  • It is made entirely with native components (TMS iCL), though with a few custom FMX components mixed in (musical instrument controls).
  • It features audio recording and audio playback, Midi input and Midi output, Instrument sound sampler, and many other technologies - all made with the native iOS frameworks (AudioUnit, CoreMidi, etc).
  • It includes Pitch detection of microphone recording drawing realtime pitch curve on Musical staff
  • Uses a custom UITableView native component with custom cells and expandable sections.
  • Multiple custom TrueType fonts
  • HTTPS Cloud syncing (towards our own developed cloud server running on Google Cloud)

Besides FireMonkey and TMS iCL it also uses SQLite, SSL, In-App purchases, XML and Indy components in the app. The IDE extensions CnPack and MMX were also very valuable.

Hans Lavdal Jakobsen developed the app over two years, and he loves Delphi . . . .

We choose Delphi because it allows us to create a true native iOS app, with a GUI using native components, and still share 97% of the source code with other platforms. If you develop a multi-platform app, Delphi is simply the fastest way to go.

-Hans Lavdal Jakobsen, Managing Director and Lead Developer of EarMaster ApS

And his customers love the app . . .

Fabulous! - ***** - from Put them lights out!, 4th Jun 2016, USA

This app is truly a standout among all the many ear training ones out there. Nothing else compares to this one. They've taken their already great desktop version and made improvements and put it all on the iPad. The beginner's course is new and really good. I like the way it progresses in steps so you don't have to figure out what to work on. Also the pitch detection is great, so you can hum or sing the notes and check your melodic dictation. 

(5 star review from iOS App Store)

The app was released in 5 languages (English, Chinese, Spanish, French and German) and peaked as the #11 most popular non-game app worldwide. EarMaster App is featured on the Discovery Network channel this Friday 7-7:30 AM EST (26th August). It is a special "Back to School" edition of the Newswatch TV show with the tech guru Scott Steinberg.
