At first Embarcadero offered it for a limited time, but it is still offered it and you can still get it. The next question I get is “Will ...

Using TMS Cloud Pack to Integrate Your Apps with the Cloud I’m a huge fan of the REST Client Components included with RAD Studio. They make it really easy to take advantage of the huge amount of REST services available online. Here is a quick video of me using the REST Client components to build a REST Client in 5 minutes. One thing about more complex REST APIs is REST isn’t a strict protocol like SOAP, it is more of a philosophy in building an API.

Cool App Contender: FontCreator I’ve always been a stickler for details in my work. The appearance and design of fonts are one of my pet peeves, especially when I’m doing web page work.
