Many Delphi made apps in Play Store

So... I was curious to see how many Delphi made apps I would be able to find in Google Play...

I know that by default the package name of an app made with Delphi is prefixed with com.embarcadero and there are many developers out there that does not know (Or don't care) how to change it... so I searched in google play for some keywords such as "Embarcadero" and "Delphi XE5"

I checked all the results and I have found over 100 apps already made with Delphi, some are bad, some are samples, but many are very good, including simple games and serious business apps
Some specific details that I looked in order to see if it was a Delphi made app was:
- Has com.embarcadero prefix
- Size over 4.5MB (We know... Firemonkey is heavy)
- Developers sometimes specify that the app can only run in ARMv7 with NEON support (The only tool with that requirement that I know is Delphi)

See for yourselves: https://play.google.com/store/search?q=embarcadero&c=apps

I'm really happy to know that people is really using Delphi and Firemonkey to produce serious mobile apps, because by just hanging around in this forum one would think that Delphi for mobile is worthless, and really is not... I use it and have already deployed a very successfull app for our customers (Digifort Mobile Client)

I have also found many apps being made in middle east.. and china :)

Here is a list that I compiled from the search I made, I have checked all the links in order to see if it was really made in Delphi... I also believe that there are many more apps out there that are not in the list, the ones that the author has changed the package name from default com.embarcadero I could not find (Some of them I could though...)

This list does not follow any particular order (Except for the first :) )

I'd also like to point out that Delphi for Mobile is very good for enterprise apps and enterprise apps won't necessarily be deployed via an app store. I built a very successful enterprise app that is deployed via a private app store internally to employees of the client only. It is projected to save the client millions of dollars worth of time over the coarse of a year by replacing paper in one facet of their business. The app is continuing to be upgraded with additional time saving functionally.

Good news. I think EMB should target developers of enterprise/business
apps. Lets face it, Delphi/FMX will always be a niche market product, but
make it a good one(like the old days). Make FMX stable/usable platform for
mobile business apps and fix performance issues in Datasnap. Of course, one
of the bright stars is Firedac, for data connectivity. Keep the vcl for
desktop/servers, until maybe the day will come, when FMX can replace it.

Some specific details that I looked in order to see if it was a Delphi made app was:
- Has com.embarcadero prefix

Only if the developer is too lazy (or hasn't realised how) to change the default...

Which means there could be many more Delphi apps in the Play store that
we don't know about.

Exactly... this list was built mainly by searching for com.embarcadero prefix, applying some criterias to rule out some apps...
Also, when I found an app with com.embarcadero prefix I checked all apps deployed by that author.. I´ve found that some apps had their prefix changed (Which would not appear in the first seach) but I determined that it was a Delphi app because usually the authors point out the minimum requirement such as ARMv7 with NEON support

Yep... I know... but amazingly, almost all the apps that I spotted are prefixed with com.embarcadero... My guess is that they don´t know how it can be changed...

It seems to me that it would make more sense to NOT have a default Android
package name at all. Embarcadero is not creating the apps, so Embarcadero's
prefix should never be used for non-Embarcadero apps. The IDE should prompt
the user for their own prefix when creating a new Android project.

That is what I first thought when I made my app, I didn´t want to make it look like it was made by Embarcadero :)

I've clicked on quite a few of these play store links within my PC browser to be told

"This app is incompatible with all of your devices."

My play store account has four devices registered for it, two Nexus 7s (2012 and 2013), a Sony Xperia E phone and a Samsung Galaxy Camera. I have successfully deployed XE5 apps directly to all of them.

According to Google Play this simple file viewer application is apparently incompatible with all four of them.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.embarcadero.FileViewer

While this Rubix cube application is reported as being compatible with all of them.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.thierrylaborde.FmxRubiksCube

My rough estimate is that about a third of the applications on that list are reporting that all my devices are incompatible with them. Something is up, I would expect that most if not all of these applications should run on one of my devices.

I've deployed Android apps directly to devices but I haven't put anything in the play store as yet. I'm wondering what mistake these developers have made that my devices are reported as incompatible with their applications. Anyone got any ideas?

One more...
Finally we have published our app on the market with some overdue.
App are using the same database and engine (100k lines) from our the desktop version.
I would like to do some more changes to UI to be more pleasant but it is a business app and this first version must do the job.
On Android forms transparency (in XE5) do not work and there was not time for this. For iOS it is working and for Android it will be in the next version (compiled with XE6).

For iOS we have now 7 days "Waiting For Review".

Hi,

Since this thread returned, let me add my app :)

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.br.dhsmobile.MegaPAP

Written using XE6. It is very simple, and it just to test my routines in mobile environment. It worked!
You can slide left and right, up and down to see the accelerated animation effect.
it uses TidHTTP to download the games and store them in the correct place.
You can click one of the buttons to see random numbers appear. There's also a menu button item.
The application was downloaded in different devices.
Very cool! I'm planning to develop a real app after this successful test.

Well... I don't want to confuse you.. but my father is from Alexandria (Egypt) , my mother from Crete (Greece), I was born and live in São Paulo (Brazil ) and I studied in a french school (Lycée pasteur).. Ah! I went to a Brazilian college!! When I think about it, I guess a lot of things could go wrong or maybe they did LOL !!!

Our first game released on Google Play.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.playful.cartoonpuzzle

Written using XE7 (AppMethod). Using parallel library for cutting images to pieces, In-App purchase, directly using JMediaPlayer and JSoundPool (TMediaPlayer was useless).

Game tested also on Windows and iOS, but without music.

We have a very successful app on the Google Play and Apple stores, completely written in Fire monkey XE 8. 96000 users and growing at over 400 per day... Not a bad example of what Delphi consumer mobile apps can do!

- Developers sometimes specify that the app can only run in ARMv7 with NEON support (The only tool with that requirement that I know is Delphi)

See for yourselves: https://play.google.com/store/search?q=embarcadero&c=apps

I'm really happy to know that people is really using Delphi and Firemonkey to produce serious mobile apps, because by just hanging around in this forum one would think that Delphi for mobile is worthless, and really is not... I use it and have already deployed a very successfull app for our customers (Digifort Mobile Client)

I have also found many apps being made in middle east.. and china :)

Here is a list that I compiled from the search I made, I have checked all the links in order to see if it was really made in Delphi... I also believe that there are many more apps out there that are not in the list, the ones that the author has changed the package name from default com.embarcadero I could not find (Some of them I could though...)

This list does not follow any particular order (Except for the first :) )

That is very good! But I've seen in the release notes of the Android version and it says that it works with Intel based tablet but Delphi does not generate binaries for Intel Android... is it really Delphi?

Hello,

if the tablet has a new enough Android version installed and thus has
Intel Houdini emulation software on it the Delphi application might run
indeed. I Haven't yet had any Houdini or even Intel powered device in my
hands, but that's what Houdini is for. Speed is said to be ok.

Greetings

It might ship with Houdini (I haven't checked whether apps can be, or even if Delphi apps will work with it)
