Free Appmethod SKU announced at AnDevCon

If you've been following the progress of Appmethod since it was announced in March, you might remember that a free version was mentioned, but we haven't heard a lot about it since.

Recently Embarcadero has been doing the rounds at different mobile development conferences.  At AnDevCon, Palak Shaw and Sarina Dupont did an interview where they confirmed that a free version will be released for Android devices and that it should be available in the next couple of weeks (around the 20 minute mark).


For more information on Appmethod, check out the official page or the Community site.

We did hear about it since, and it wasn't good news at all, From the AppMethod FAQ:

So whether this is indeed "nice" or not depends on what if any platform, form factor, screen size, feature and distribution restrictions EMBT chooses to place upon it. If they cripple it, it won't do much good.
