Posted in Android Development, Blackberry development, iPhone development tagged , , , , , , , , at 2:04 am by tetontech

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.

iPhone Enterprise Data Synchronization

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 12:11 am by tetontech

The QuickConnectFamily framework now has Enterprise Data Synchronization built in.  It is included in the 1.6 beta 9 and later versions.  In beta 9 the only tested version is for the iPhone but in beta 10 there will be tested versions for the iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Palm Web OS devices.

You can find a ‘how to’ on the wiki.

An example app, synchronization, is also include in the 1.6 beta 9 and later downloads.  It uses http.  You should use https in your implementation

It was fun to create this ability.  I hope you can use it.

Cross Platform Mobile Development Documentation

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 1:25 am by tetontech

Available on the wiki you will find documentation on how to start using the latest 1.6 beta to develop for iPhone, Android, and Palm with the same HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code.  I hope this helps you creating the apps that you want.

I’m still working on getting Blackberry development to work the same way as the others but I’m close to having something that works.

I’m also uploading 1.6 beta6.  It makes some small fixes related to the Images directory in the project.  If you are using beta5 you should upgrade.

QuickConnect Cross Platform Mobile Development

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , at 12:15 am by tetontech

The latest QuickConnectFamily beta, 1.6 beta5, includes Xcode templates for iPhone, Android, and Palm WebOS development.  The file structure is the same across all of the platforms.  You can write your application in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for one device and then move the code into projects for the other platforms.

Coming soon, one project that builds and launches on all platforms.

Things to remember

  1. The 1.6 beta 5 dowload does not include the full Android SDK.  Download the QC Android support file and it will have what you need.
  2. You have to install the Palm WebOS SDK if you want to develop for that platform

Here are images of the same simple application running on all of the platforms on my MacBook Pro

Palm Pre and Mojo

Posted in Android Development, iPhone development, misc tagged , , , , , at 2:16 am by tetontech

Well, it looks like Palm has adopted the QuickConnectiPhone approach for their new phone’s SDK.  In fact it is strikingly similar.  Even down to using JSON as the data transfer type between application code and the device.

Hmm….  I wonder where they may have gotten an idea like that?  More power to them.

It sounds like a port Palm’s new phones will be only a couple of days.

Developers —-   Want to get an idea of how to develop for this new system type?  Start working with QuickConnectiPhone or even the recently released QuickConnectAndroid.

In fact, write off of QuickConnect now and you will get an easy move over of your application to yet another device.

Just a reminder, QC is currently available for iPhone, Android and Mac and coming really soon for Linux, Symbian, and Nokia.

I can hardly wait to get my hands on this new Palm SDK.
