AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Embarcadero Technologies (a division of IDERA), a leading provider of software solutions for application development, today announced that the June 2017 winner of its Cool App contest is Alpemix, an easy-to-use remote control, desktop sharing and file transfer software that can be used from all platforms.
Built with Delphi XE 10.1 Professional, Alpemix works behind any firewall or NAT proxy and doesn't require installation or specific settings adjustments. To connect to another computer, a user simply runs Alpemix on both machines and enters the ID and password of the other machine. From Windows, macOS, iOS or Android devices, users can also control Windows or Mac computers.
Beyond screen sharing it also supports instant text messaging and audio communication. People can work with colleagues or friends at different locations as if they are sitting next to them on the same computer. The app is free, with no membership or installation required.
“Alpemix is a great example of a project that takes full advantage of our multi-platform vision. It runs on Windows, iOS, Android and macOS, all from the same codebase,” said Jim McKeeth, chief developer advocate and engineer at Embarcadero. “It is also the type of application that benefits from the performance and security of a pure native solution. It is natural that Alpemix should be featured as a cool app built with Delphi and the cross-platform FireMonkey framework.”
“I started with Delphi 3 in 1997 and I’ve used the tool in a number of projects over the years,” said Alpemix developer Mustafa Ersagun Korkmaz. “From internet-based communication software to engineering applications and multi-user interactive game software, Delphi has always made the development process fast and painless.”
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.
