New opportunities with Instant Developer

by Andrea Maioli on 03/21/2014

I am very proud to announce that major version 13 of Instant Developer is available for general use.

As always, the spring version contains the biggest innovations, which will be refined in June (13.1) and finalized in October (13.5). And again this year, we spared no effort in terms of innovation:

  1. Platform As A Service: starting today, Instant Developer will allow you to create your clouds with a few clicks and manage your virtual data center directly from the IDE. Just a few more days until this new service is open to everyone, as soon as the consultants have wrapped up their legal paperwork.
  2. WebAPI: lets you integrate your software services with the rest of the world, and even find new ways to sell them.
  3. Retina: your eyes are worth it! Beginning today, all apps created with Instant Developer support high-resolution screens. We recommend that you also adapt the images you’ve used in your apps.
  4. Kitkat: the sweet new version of Android finally makes the Chrome rendering engine available for hybrid applications too. Performance rivals, and at time surpasses, that of iOS.
  5. Mobile web: mobile applications created with Instant Developer are also certified for use in the standard browsers of the devices as well as in the native shell.

And these are just a few of the more than 200 updates, improvements, and corrections we’ve developed from November through today. We recommend reading the release notes to find out how to use them best. The most important ones will be described directly by the authors in this blog in the coming weeks.

And there’s a final surprise, but I don’t want to reveal it yet… If you go see the movie Her, you’ll have an idea of what I mean .

I hope that Instant Developer becomes an increasingly fun and useful tool in your hands, and that it will help you seize the new opportunities that are cropping up on the market. And you, give us a hand with your feedback!
