Hello everyone. My name is Vittoria, and I’ve been one of the “guys” at Instant Developer since January. The luckiest of you have already had a chance to meet me over the phone -I’ll introduce myself to the rest of you the first time we talk ;).
Before coming here I couldn’t have imagined the huge variety of subjects tackled in Pro Gamma meetings. At one of the first ones I attended, we talked about cloud-based services. How many of you use Gmail, Google Calendar, or Google Drive? Or maybe SkyDrive or Dropbox? And I’ll bet that almost all of you have a Google or Facebook account. By now it’s clear that support for cloud services is not just a fleeting trend; it has become a very important element of applications, especially for mobile apps.
Those of you who have known Andrea longer than I have are well aware what he’s like: he couldn’t possibly miss the chance to make apps developed with Instant Developer even better. And that’s why he proposed that I develop a component to integrate with the most common cloud services.
I accepted his challenge enthusiastically, and now I’m pleased to announce something else you’ll find in Instant Developer 12.1: IDCloud, a component designed to let you integrate cloud services into your applications, and more. With it, you can:
- integrate PayPal and make payments directly from Visual Code;
- log in using Facebook and access published content;
- log in using Google;
- integrate Google Calendar to manage your schedule;
- integrate Gmail to read and send e-mail;
- integrate Dropbox, Google Drive and SkyDrive.
Are you ready for your apps to fly among the clouds?
