Device Input Simulator

Device Input Simulator


Always looking to provide new features and tools to reduce the development time, ShiVa Editor 1.9 is now available with a Device Input Simulator Application that can be installed on iPhone, iPod, iPad, Android and Palm.

The application will communicate directly with the ShiVa Editor and simulate the input. Depending on the device you will receive the accelerometer, GPS, Compass and Multi-touch.

Device Application Loader


The Device Application Loader allows loading directly an application from an URL.
The main interest is to load an application from a local network so the loading time is quasi null.

This application allows developing on Windows without the need of a Mac to push the application each time a new version is available. The application saves all the loaded pack in a history, so it will take only few seconds to load a pack exported from the Editor.
