Smart Mobile Studio:About
Smart Mobile Studio is a very exciting project that allows you to write ordinary Pascal in the flavour made famous by Delphi and Free Pascal, but generate feature rich, cutting edge HTML5 web applications ready for the mobile market.
Rapid application development
The phrase rapid application development was a concept made famous by Borland Delphi (now Embarcadero Delphi) nearly two decades ago. Delphi came with an impressive library of ready to use components, re-usable classes and functions that set a new standard in productivity. Delphi is still knocking out killer apps even today and is experiencing somewhat of a revival in the IT community. The visual component library and the fact that you can easily re-use and extend these controls means that you can do more in less time. You focus on writing your app rather than wasting time re-inventing the wheel over and over again.
One example of what RAD is all about is a lesson we ourselves learned when venturing into the mobile software development business. Our very first project was a handy database driven time tracking app. The app itself is fairly humble, yet it took over two months of actual work to get it right (not to mention the time it took learning a new platform, a new language and new rules). That very same application can be re-created in Smart in less than two days. That is a substantial difference and the financial benefit speaks for itself.
We bring the power of Pascal to the browser
- Concurrent data-types
- True object inheritance
- Virtual and abstract methods
- Var parameters
- Published properties
- Reusable components
- Class helpers
- Record helpers
- and much, much more…
We support PhoneGap
PhoneGap / Apache Cordova is an open source technology that turns your HTML5 web app into a real application that you can sell on App Store. So having sculpted your application in Smart, simply deploy your project to PhoneGap build services and you get a native iOS program in return.
