AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Embarcadero Technologies (a division of IDERA), a leading provider of software solutions for application development, today announced that the May 2017 winner of its Cool App contest is Ofertas do Dia (“Daily Offers”), which combines daily offers from the biggest Brazilian online stores in a clear and easy to use mobile app.
The Ofertas do Dia mobile app -- which runs on iOS, Android and Windows Desktop -- allows consumers to access the best deals from all the top Brazilian retail sites with just one touch. Using the app, people can search offers using keywords or a barcode scanner, opt-in for push notifications and share offers with others.
“Some of the best apps are the ones that simplify key processes in our lives, and Ofertas do Dia does just that,” said Jim McKeeth, chief developer advocate and engineer at Embarcadero. “It’s great to see such an elegant, useful app developed with Delphi that is benefitting so many consumers daily.”
Ofertas do Dia is built on the Enterprise Edition of Delphi using FireMonkey, and it uses regular expressions to extract products and offers from web pages. The data is stored in a FireDAC TFDMemTable, while the display uses a custom ListView appearance.
“I've been a Delphi developer since version 1 and love the Delphi productivity,” said Rafael Ribas Aguiló of Agile Consultoria de Informática, who developed Ofertas do Dia. “This is just another great example of innovative mobile apps developed with Delphi helping consumers connect with the brands they love.”
Embarcadero’s Cool App contest is open to any business or consumer application built with RAD Studio, Delphi or C++Builder. Qualifying apps can use VCL, FireMonkey, DataSnap, EMS, FireDAC, InterBase and any other components, libraries, services, sites, infrastructures, APIs or devices. Embarcadero awards Cool App contest winners a $500 Amazon gift card and winning submissions are also highlighted on the company’s YouTube channel.
