|Embarcadero Launches RAD Studio XE5 with True Native Android and iOS Support, Allowing Developers to Reach the Largest Addressable Mobile Markets|
New Survey Shows 85% of Windows Developers are Tasked with Developing Mobile Apps and 95% See Value in Using Common Source Code for Both Desktop and Mobile
SAN FRANCISCO – September 11, 2013 – Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, today announced the availability of RAD Studio XE5, a multi-language, multi-device, and multi-database application development suite, now with Android and iOS support. RAD Studio XE5 is the only solution on the market that provides true native, CPU executable code on all four leading computing platforms – Android, iOS, Windows and OS X – while managing one codebase, one team, and one schedule without sacrificing app quality, connectivity or performance.
RAD Studio XE5 enables users to create true native apps for PCs, tablets, and smartphones and get them to app stores and enterprises fast. True native apps run directly on the device hardware with no scripting or interpretive layers, allowing developers to deliver the best user experience possible. A new survey by Dimensional Research released today, shows that while 85 percent of Windows developers are tasked with developing mobile apps and 85% prefer native apps, only 17 percent believe they can reasonably deliver native mobile apps for two or more platforms.
"We designed RAD Studio XE5 to be a game changer enabling developers to rapidly build native apps with rich user experiences on multiple devices with a single code base," said Michael Swindell, Embarcadero senior vice president of products. "The biggest challenge facing software development organizations today is how to best deliver their business across an ever-expanding list of devices. With RAD Studio XE5, developers can now deliver native apps for Android, iOS, Windows, and OS X devices in a fraction of the time and cost of any other solution."
