#AppsWorldNA: Went, Saw and Drew It!

19 May 15

Last week we were at Apps World North America in San Francisco along with 350 other exhibitors and 10,000 developers, marketers, mobile operators, device manufacturers and industry professionals.

What made Apps World particularly interesting was how there were visitors developing software for completely different uses. We had visitors who were building applications to control and monitor information from sensors on drones, others who were developing applications for retail stores, apps for financial services, the connected car or even people working for government agencies who need to contact thousands of people simultaneously to warn of a natural disaster or Amber alert.

This gave us a fantastic opportunity to chat to a wide variety of people all doing new and exciting things with their mobile apps. The event also allowed us to demonstrate the multiple ways that Diffusion and Diffusion Cloud can help them in the development and scalability of their app, whilst, most importantly, improving the experience for their end users.

At Apps World, we wanted to show JUST how much the responsiveness of an application can be enhanced, and how easy it is to scale an application when using Diffusion or Diffusion Cloud. And while demonstrating middleware can be tricky, luckily we have an excellent Drawing Board demo to show this in the simplest way possible. With Drawing Board, you can immediately see how drawing on one device, instantly appears on another.

Ever the sceptics, some people believed all we were doing was either casting our iPad screen, or communicating directly with the other machine over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. In fact, what each person witnessed (and what you can too) is the coordinates of the drawing sent all the way back to the UK, being processed by Diffusion, and then distributed to as many clients (the devices – tablets and mobile phones in the example last week) as required. Many Apps World attendees were impressed that we have already solved this problem for them and that they can easily harness this power within their own applications.

The fantastic take away for us is that regardless of what you are developing, Diffusion Cloud and Diffusion have a use case for it. If you want to build a dream app or have a problem app that you need fixing then come and talk to us. We got it covered.

You can download the Drawing Board demo from the app store now. It is also available at http://demo2.pushtechnology.com/demos/draw/
