/n software IP*Works! V9

The lowercase forward slash fans at /n software inc. have released the IP*Works! V9 and E-Business Integrator products for Microsoft Windows Runtime development. The software is designed to enable developers to integrate connectivity into applications across versions of Windows 8, including Microsoft Surface with WinRT.

These new releases offer connectivity for mobile application development on ARM processors through managed .NET libraries optimized for WinRT. The company has been developing for mobile devices since the release of IP*Works! for Windows CE 1.0 in early 1998.

Since that time the firm says that /n software components have evolved to support a spectrum of mobile devices with dedicated editions for Windows Phone, Android OS, iOS (iPad / iPhone), and now Windows Runtime.

Earlier this year the firm announced full Embarcadero RAD Studio XE 4 support across all IP*Works! and Integrator products for Delphi and C++ Builder.

Even more recent updates from /n software see the Spreadsheet Integrator product released. This is a suite of components for connecting applications with spreadsheets and spreadsheet data to connect, create, and update spreadsheet data from Excel, Google, and so on from custom applications. Available for: .NET, Java, C++, ActiveX, Delphi, C++ Builder, Mac OS, Linux, PHP, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

Features include components for accessing Microsoft Excel, Open Office XML Spreadsheets, and Google Spreadsheets; small and lightweight components with no dependencies on external libraries; native development components for all supported platforms and component technologies; unlimited free Email technical support as well as documentation and sample applications.
