Developer Babak Yaghoobi has updated the DPF Android component suite for Delphi XE7 Firemonkey. If you haven’t seen the DPF Android suite before it is a group of wrapper components around the native Android components. If you need things like right to left language functionality or you need more performance than you are able to achieve with regular Firemonkey components you may want to check it out. The downside is that these components are only for Android. We’ve covered this component suite before in regards to XE5 and XE6 Firemonkey. Here is a sample of the native components that the suite includes: TDPFJAlertDialog, TDPFJAnalogClock, TDPFJButton, TDPFJCheckBox, TDPFJChronometer, TDPFJDatePicker, TDPFJDatePickerDialog, TDPFJEditText, TDPFJImageView, TDPFJListView, TDPFJProgressBar, TDPFJProgressDialog, TDPFJTextView, TDPFJTimePickerDialog, TDPFJToast, TDPFJView, TDPFJRadioButton, TDPFJNumberPicker, TDPFJScrollView, TDPFJSeekBar, TDPFJTabHost, TDPFJSpinner, TDPFJTextSwitcher, TDPFJTextClock, and TDPFJWebView. These components should also work in AppMethod. This component suite is entirely free so if you do end up using it you might contribute back to Babak so he can keep it updated.
