Latest news about Mobile Application Development Platforms


2017. Xamarin now lets run and test iOS apps directly from Windows



Untill now Microsoft’s Xamarin already allowed to develop iOS applications in Visual Studio but they still needed a Mac to build and test apps. But with the new Xamarin Live Player, they can deploy, run, test and debug iOS apps directly from a Windows PC that runs Visual Studio. To enable this new functionality, developers have to install the Xamarin Live Player app on their iOS device and then pair it to their PC by scanning a QR code on their screen. With this, Microsoft is closing the loop for most developers and is getting a step closer to its goal of positioning Windows 10 as the preferred operating system for cross-platform development.


2016. Built.io launches an IFTTT for business users



Built.io has long offered an integration tool Flow that allowed technical users (think IT admins and developers) to create complex, multi-step integrations with the help of an easy to use drag-and-drop interface. Now the company has also launched a more basic version of Flow that is aimed at business users who want to create IFTTT-like integrations between applications like Cisco Spark, Slack, Gmail, Marketo and Salesforce. To clarify the difference between the two services, the old version of Flow is now Flow Enterprise, while this new one is branded as Flow Express.




2016. Built.io Flow makes building enterprise integrations easier



Built.io is launching a major update of its enterprise integration service Flow that will make it easier for businesses to build more powerful integrations. Flow is a drag-and-drop tool for building enterprise integrations. It’s a bit of a mix of Yahoo Pipes (R.I.P.) and IFTTT for connecting services like Salesforce and Marketo to help automate the sales process in an organization, for example.  It’s worth noting that in the world of enterprise, integration is still a big business, with plenty of development shops doing very little else but helping their customers connect various third-party services. The Built.io team argues that it can take a process that often takes weeks and reduce it to a few hours.


2016. Microsoft launched its no-coding app builder



Microsoft opened the new service PowerApps that allows anybody to build basic business apps without having to touch any code. These apps can run on the web and on mobile (through the PowerApps apps for iOS and Android).  Building apps in PowerApps is mostly a drag-and-drop affair. While the service offers an online dashboard, the design work happens in a Windows 10 desktop app. It also offers a number of templates for a couple of standard use cases. For the most part, though, building new apps from scratch is pretty straightforward — though maybe not quite as trivial as Microsoft’s marketing wants to make it look.


2016. Microsoft's development platform Xamarin integrates with Visual Studio



Xamarin, the cross-platform development platform Microsoft recently acquired, launched updates to almost all of the core features of its platform. Xamarin is open-sourcing its SDKs for Android, iOS and Mac under the MIT license. These SDKs include the command-line tools for building applications, as well as Xamarin’s cross-platform Xamarin.Forms UI framework. The Xamarin IDE (for Mac), though, will remain closed-source for now. A lot of the new functionality is coupled to Microsoft’s tools, especially Visual Studio. iOS developers who want to code in C#, for example, can now use Xamarin’s iOS Simulator right from Visual Studio on Windows (though the simulator itself still has to run on a networked Mac and Visual Studio essentially creates a remote connection to it). In addition, Visual Studio/Xamarin users can now deploy apps to iOS devices that are plugged into the Windows machine’s USB port right from Visual Studio, too.
