Going Mobile (for online shopping) is the Way Ahead

Posted by on in Blogs
Last Friday morning, at my London Heathrow Airport hotel, The Times newspaper was placed at my door.  I kept a two page spread article from inside the newspaper that was titled "Going Mobile Is The Way Ahead".  I don't think anyone would disagree about the impact that mobile devices and app development are having in our world.  Would you?  What really caught my eye (I love infographics and statistics) was the page full of results from a 2013 UK Mobile Online Shopping Survey done by IMRG/eDigitalResearch.  Included in the survey info was "How People Expect To Use Their Smartphone for the next 12 months" for online shopping and which operating system people are using on their smartphone.  Another survey question asked whether a mobile app or a mobile site felt more secure.  The results should encourage app developers:  65.9% said mobile apps, 34.1% said mobile site.  Being a developer and also user, I would expect to see the mobile app percentage to grow as more and better apps are built.

We are totally committed to continued mobile support for iOS and Android in our Delphi, C++BuilderHTML5 Builder, InterBase and RAD Studio products.  We've started with the release of Delphi for iOS last month.  You can start your multi-device journey today and keep on truckin' with us for the months and years to ahead.

You can find the online version of the newspaper article at http://theraconteur.co.uk/going-mobile-is-the-way-ahead/.

The infographic results are included in the bitmap below.  You can clock on the image to see a larger version.



Come join the fun!

    Another very good option to converting Delphi FireMonkey application to a multi-device public is the newly release WebFMX.
    It supports all standard browsers that are HTML5 compliant.

    Here is the product page to those who are interested: http://www.cybelesoft.com/webfmx/
    It takes a single line of code to convert the application into dual-plataform (HTML5/Windows). Hope you guys like it!

    http://onlineshoppingtips.in/" rel="nofollow">Online Shopping is convenient, easy, and quick. But before you start adding items to your cart, make sure you are up-to-date and have the latest security software, web browsers and operating system. Keeping a clean machine is the best defense against viruses, malware, and other online threats.one of the most critical security steps is the one we give the least attention to—our passwords. Passwords can be the best security defenses we have, but if they’re not created properly, a hacker can easily guess them. For any online shopping accounts you have, be sure to create good passwords
