Dropbox – Simplify your life – easy way to sync your iOS Delphi XE2 FireMonkey stuff between your Mac and PC

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/09/20

One of the things hard when doing FireMonkey iOS development Delphi XE2 is that you have a multi stage process:

  1. Develop and test using Delphi XE2 on Windows
  2. Compile and deploy on the iOS Simulator using xCode on OS X
  3. Deploy on the real iOS hardware using xCode OS X

Basically you need to share your project files both ways between Windows and OS X.

Naturally, you would share files between your Mac and Windows using Samba. With the introduction of OS X Lion, the Samba support was rewritten, causing all sorts of problems.

One of the problems is that it uses a lot of CPU (I tried copying over a 40GB VM, and stopped because the fan in my MacBook Air was making so much noise, I was afraid it was going to take off).
I didn’t even realize it had one, but a MacBook Air has a Fan, and it vents through the keyboard :)

Now I use DropBox to share files between it. If you like that to, sign up with the URL at the end of this line. The 2GB account is free!

And if you know a better way of sharing: please let me know!
