Slingshot and Mobile Application Development

Sharing unfinished or non-production iOS applications with clients and peers is no easy task. We run into provisioning problems, emailing large files, UI miscommunications; the list goes on.

Slingshot allows developers to demo applications in real time. There is no complicated setup or third-part software. Just connect your device to a computer running Slingshot and everyone in your Slingshot session can see what you’re doing.

Check out some Slingshot features that make iOS and mobile app development easy:

  • Built by developers - We understand the pains of client communication. Slingshot was built for easy sharing and collaboration by all.
  • iOS MirroringShare your iPad or iPhone to anyone in a session. There are no cables or complicated file installations involved! Provisioning problems are a thing of the past.
  • Webcam Chat - Clients can be all over the world, and meeting face-to-face isn’t always possible. Webcam chat brings everyone together in one place.
  • File Sharing - Email doesn’t allow sending large files, and using file sharing services just adds another step for confusion. Slingshot instantly and securely shares the important files you need others to see.
  • Cross Platform -  Slingshot works on Windows and Mac computers, and it works on today’s popular mobile devices. Share iOS devices with Windows computers, or share your Windows screen to a Mac.

#BSCADC 2014 Recap

While some of our team was at WWDC, two members of our development and QA team traveled to Las Vegas last week to attend the Better Software Conference and Agile Development Conference West 2014, or #BSCADC. 

The pair used the week to learn how to improve various processes as a company, such as how to better develop and test software and do so in a higher quality and shorter amount of time. They even got to build a car through Agile’s demonstration on both self-management and teamwork in building and testing products as quick as possible.

They were also featured on @agileconn’s twitter!
