Embarcadero Bridges the Gap from Desktop to Mobile with New iOS Support in C++Builder XE5

New technology allows software developers to create native mobile apps in industry standard C++ language

Maidenhead, UK - December 11, 2013 - Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, today announced the immediate availability of C++Builder XE5, a powerful C++ application development suite to target both desktop and mobile devices. With this new technology release, millions of C++ developers worldwide can now create natively compiled Windows, Mac and Mobile apps in the industry standard C++ language from a single source project. Unlike other solutions, C++Builder XE5 enables developers to compile true native apps for multiple devices and form factors—code that runs directly on the CPU, taking full advantage of the underlying operating systems, APIs and hardware.

The new C++Builder XE5 release enables the extensive C++ developer community to leverage their existing skills and code to target Windows, Mac and iOS, all with the same source code base. This solution represents a major breakthrough for developers and enterprises targeting both desktop and mobile devices. Organisations can now leverage their C++ skills, code and libraries across all key devices. What's more, development efforts are streamlined—an enterprise's single team of coders can now target these major platforms without requiring separate teams for each, delivering significant time and cost savings.

"C++ is one of the most popular languages in use due to its power, flexibility and promise of native portability," said Michael Swindell, senior vice president of products at Embarcadero Technologies. "By targeting Windows, Mac and iOS native app development from a single source, C++Builder XE5 is the first development solution to deliver the full potential of the powerful C++ language. With XE5's multi-device capabilities, our customers are gaining up to 10x improvements in schedules and budgets."

With both C++Builder XE5 and RAD Studio XE5, launched earlier this year, developers can produce true native applications for Windows, Mac and mobile and get them to app stores and enterprises quickly. True native apps are compiled and run directly on the device hardware without scripting or interpretive layers, allowing developers to deliver the best user experience possible. A recent survey by Dimensional Research found that while 85 percent of Windows developers are tasked with developing mobile applications and 85 percent prefer native applications, only 17 percent believe they can reasonably deliver native mobile applications for two or more platforms.

Availability and Pricing
This new iOS functionality is being made available for free to registered users of C++Builder XE5 (Enterprise, Ultimate and Architect editions) and RAD Studio XE5, as well as being included in all new purchases of those products starting immediately.
