Creating iPhone/iPod/iPad web applications with Delphi & TMS controls
Apple's proposition to create applications for its iOS devices to learn Objective C +
xCode + InterfaceBuilder + the iOS/Cocoa APIs can be quite daunting for an experienced Delphi developer. Imagine building iPhone, iPod, iPad applications with Delphi
though: reusing Delphi skills, benefiting from Delphi's rich offerings for database connectivity, doing a server side deployment only and on top of that, circumvent Apple's strict rules for publishing applications on its AppStore and avoid paying the yearly 99USD Apple tax.
For most Delphi developers this sounds like music to their ears and with Delphi and the
IntraWeb framework, you can already go a very long way to create web applications accessible from the mobile device's browser. The missing pieces are offering fast and responsive applications with a user interface that matches the iOS look & feel. This is where the TMS IntraWeb iPhone Controls pack comes in. This is a set of components that is fine-tuned to offer a look and feel very close and in many cases nearly pixel-level identical to native iOS controls.
