The company measured billions of Web sites visited by smartphones and tablets in 101 countries, including the most developed ones.</p> Mobile Technology Android Internet iOS Fri, 21 Mar 2014 21:17:30 +0000 admin 238889 at http://podcasts.infoworld.com Embarcadero unifies iOS and Android development within one tool http://podcasts.infoworld.com/d/application-development/embarcadero-unifies-ios-and-android-development-within-one-tool-238540?source=rss_ios <p>With a new IDE (integrated development environment), Embarcadero Technologies is hoping to ease the burden of application developers who must prepare their creations for more than one OS.</p> <p>"Appmethod is designed for developers who have to support more than one OS.

As a result, communications sent over unsecured Wi-Fi hot spots could be intercepted and read while unencrypted, potentially exposing user password, bank data, and other sensitive data to hackers via man-in-the-middle attacks. Secured Wi-Fi networks, such as home and business networks with encryption enabled, are not affected.</p> Applications Mobile Technology Security Apple Mac OS X Application Security iOS Encryption Hacking Web Browsers Sun, 23 Feb 2014 03:00:48 +0000 Galen Gruman 236889 at http://podcasts.infoworld.com Cloudant Sync helps mobile developers add offline access to their apps http://podcasts.infoworld.com/d/application-development/cloudant-sync-helps-mobile-developers-add-offline-access-their-apps-236572?source=rss_ios <p><a href="http://cts.businesswire.com/ct/CT?id=smartlink&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fcloudant.com%2F&amp;esheet=50805853&amp;newsitemid=20140218005669&amp;lan=en-US&amp;anchor=Cloudant&amp;index=1&amp;md5=cd5e6ffbfa4d76047f9402a3d408efea" target="_blank">Cloudant</a> has announced open source, native Sync software libraries for Android and iOS, making it easier for developers to build offline access in their mobile applications.</p> Application Development Mobile Technology Development Tools iOS Mobile Apps Tue, 18 Feb 2014 20:09:00 +0000 admin 236572 at http://podcasts.infoworld.com VMware releases vSphere Mobile Watchlist for Android and iOS smartphones http://podcasts.infoworld.com/d/virtualization/vmware-releases-vsphere-mobile-watchlist-android-and-ios-smartphones-236471?source=rss_ios <p>According to a recent <a href="http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS24645514" target="_blank">research report from analyst firm IDC</a>, the worldwide smartphone market reached a new milestone in 2013, having shipped 1 billion smartphones in a single year for the first time.
