RAD Studio XE4 is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for the creation of multi device and true native applications for PCs, iPhone, iPad and other portable devices using a single code base. It includes a wide range of native user interface controls such as buttons, textboxes, listboxes, combo boxes, date picker, custom picker, different keyboard types and service notifications including support for ShareSheet which enables you to share and print using social media.
With the help of RAD Studio, developers will be able to create apps for multiple platforms such as iOS, Windows and Mac by taking advantage of FireMonkey FM3 using a single code base. Moreover, rapid prototyping enables developers to quickly create no-code visual mockups with live or stimulated data and deploy them to actual target devices which can be either PCs, smart phones or tablet.
RAD Studio XE4 provides support for IBLite and SQLite iOS database via dbExpress, FireDAC and IBX. It also includes ISV and enterprise class integrated database connectivity and cloud computing with the help of dbExpress and FireMonkey including support for SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, DB2, InterBase, SQL Anywhere, SQLite, MySQL in addition to Windows Azure and Amazon Web Services.
RAD Studio XE4 enables you to build rich GUI client, HD, 3D, Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, local and remote database apps including web and cloud based applications. According to official sources, apps developed using RAD Studio reduces the risk of third party attacks or hacking since the code directly runs on the device.
