iAdds and File Download available in new QuickConnect Release

Posted in Android Development, iPhone development tagged , , , , , , , , at 2:49 am by tetontech

As promised QCFamily 1.6.2 is now available.  It includes the ability to show and hide iAdds from within JavaScript.  Take a look at the new exmaple app.

It also includes the ability to download files.  When you download a file from a server the framework stores it on the device it then sends the full file path to your javascript code.  See the new example.  It downloads an image file and then sets the source of an img tag to be the file.  Presto!  Image updates from your server.

A feature to build on top of this download would be displaying office docs that you download.  Would you like that feature?

Be careful with this download feature.  If you download JavaScript Apple will probably reject your app.

What’s Coming Next

Posted in iPhone development tagged , , , , , , at 12:30 am by tetontech

There have been several Native UI elements made available in the recent releases thanks to Mike A and he has submitted one more that will be in the next release.  iAds.  You can now show and hide them in an iPhone app.  As soon as iOS 4 ships for the iPad it will be available there as well.

I’ve been busy working on getting the Android version debugged.  The database behavior seems to have changed since I put the Xcode template together.  It is now working and ready.  Both the enterprise data sync and the standard database access code.

I’m now working on file download and hope to have it done in the next day or so.  The way you will use it is ‘download(“http://someURL.com”,”someFileNameYouWantItTohave”)

It will save the downloaded file using the name you provided.  It will be in your applications data directory.  When the download is complete you will be notified and sent a complete path to the file.  You could then store this file path in a database, use it right then, both, or neither.

It looks like this will ship July 29th.  Stay tuned.  I’ll post here and also tweet when it is available.

The first non-beta of QuickConnect 1.6 is now available.

Thanks to several of your users the new QC release is available.  It is no longer in Beta!

It includes an update to Android version 2.2.  You will also find that the template selection has been dramatically simplified.  You will find that there are now two template groups, QuickConnect Mobile Hybrid and QuickConnect Mobile Obj-C.  Within these groups you will find the different types of projects.

For the Hybrid group you will find iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry, and PalmWebOS hybrid JavaScript/Objective-C templates.

For the Obj-C group you will find iPhone and iPad Objective-C  templates.

The Obj-C group is used to develop pure Objective-C iPhone and iPad applications.

There have been many changes and improvements since 1.5 including many more examples.
