The Pro Version ($699) says that you can develop iOS Applications BUT you need MAC.
Does that mean I need to buy a MAC Computer ? I run in Windows 10 normally - never owned a MAC.
If I buy this version (The Pro Version - $699) can I start to develop WEB 2.0 applications as a Tester (or are all the Tester placements full or expired)
I understand that the License provides upgrades for 12 months - that’s why I have been holding off buying. Also need to have access to Android development. I know you cannot commit to a delivery date for Android release, so I am guessing I should wait until you actually release Android, before committing to purchasing.
Don’t count on anything new arriving during a specific license period… Despite the best plans/intensions , software delivery dates can slip a long time.
That said, you can start developing what you need in what has been released without buying a license.
If web is critical for you, then once Web 2.0 is released, start developing in that. If you find it meets your immediate needs, then buy a license when you get to the point you actually need to test a deployed web app for performance etc.
That way you maximize what you get for your money.
it is not just a mac to build apps, see also the store terms for developers.
a small mac mini should be ok.
myself joined last year and i thought one year for android is enough …
in the meantime have a look at b4a.
Web 2 took a long time, maybe end this year cou can count on it.
True, but since Web 2.0 is not yet released, things may change , and will. The Beta lets you test and help Xojo find issues as learning the new API in advance. But I am not sure it’s a good decision to stat developing a solution that early.
you can’t have all os versions on one real pc and emulatos never worked 100%.
i guess most people just test on current/last os version.
my lessons learned from android, every phone manufacturer have different os branch.
each phone/tablet behave different and you can not make sure one app run at all devices.
and each android major release need care.
if you think all is fine, the next surprise comes soon.
that is a horror scenario if you get bad valuations in store because of this trouble.
google made also some new next level api classes …
the android device emulator take alot of hd space and is not like a real hardware.
