My first iOS FireMonkey app in the AppStore

Submitted Saturday. Accepted and available tonight!

Anders' Analog Clock

I'll make a video of how it's made, and also publish the source code. Soon.

Enjoy!

First update may very well change the name to "Analog Clock for FireMonkey" just so you can find something in the appstore using "FireMonkey" as the search term. Oh, and properly working iPad support is coming as well. ;)

Please consider checking it out it and rating it! :)

  1. Great! But maybe in app description you should share that app was built with Delph XE2

  2. @Tomasz: probably not, this is a shocking 4.1 megabytes for a clock with so few faces and styles

  3. Thanks to share this, please some photos should be appreciate.

  5. Are the clock faces vector graphics ? (and if not, does Firemonkey can handle such formats ?)

  6. Yes, when I update it, the description will be better. I will also look at the file size. It may because of including all of iPhoneAll. Not sure.

    The clock faces are transparent PNG resources. Actually made in another FireMonkey app.

  7. Just looked for it on my iPod 2nd gen, bummer needs iOS 4.3, why is that through?

    Reason I ask is a few years ago everyone in my company (a Delphi development house) got iPods, we just updated to XE2. We don't have any macs to test on yet, but I was wondering if all our iPods won't be able to run any Delphi XE2 apps, or what the deal is.

  8. @Peter - from the Embarcadero site, for developing you need iOS 4.3 (see below), don't know for running the app:

    For developing iOS applications:
    On Snow Leopard: iOS 4.2 or 4.3 with compatible version of Xcode
    On Lion: iOS 4.3 with compatible version of Xcode

  9. I built it for 4.3. That could very well be my mistake. If I rebuild under a lower version, I'll update it for sure.

  10. > I will also look at the file size. It may because of

    iPhoneAll is like the Windows unit: it contains almost only imports of types and routines, and next to no actual code (in case of iPhoneAll it's only a few inline small routines). It will not significantly impact the size of the program. The Mac OS X linker also employs "smart linking", although they call it by the more conventional term "dead code stripping".

    My guess is that the main contributor to the code size is probably the FireMonkey middleware, or the images as others have suggested.

  11. Very disappointing that it requires iOS 4.3. Do all Firemonkey apps require this? If so why?

    There are a LOT of users out there limited to older iOS versions (eg iPod Touch 2G only goes up to 4.1). Why alienate them if you don't need to?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Looks great! I'll wait a lower version requirement to try!

    My iPad "1" is 4.2.1 but I don't want to update it exactly to be able to test apps with a not so updated iOS device (I update only once).

    On my tests I was using iOS 3.2... (of course depends on the resources being used)
