Apple is bringing iPad apps to your Mac

Applications
We've been working on a new project and internally we call project catalyst, and its new technology that lets developers quickly and efficiently create apps for the mac based on their existing iPad apps. Now, there are over a million iPad apps out there and we think some of the will be fantastic on the Mac. iPad developers of corse would also love to have this greater audience to sell the apps to. There are hundred million active Mac users out there waiting for them. Now, if you're running a hobby, you've already used catalyst technology because we used to build news stocks, voice memos home. Now that was just the one. And we've learned a lot since then. We've spent the last year expanding the number of categories of apps that technology could support, and we've tuned it up. So we're Results in a much better Mac app. We are pleased to announce that we're making Catalyst available to developers today, in macOS Catalina. [APPLAUSE] Now, the experience starts right here in xcode. Just open up your existing iPad project, checl the Mac Check box and just like that you get a huge head start because extra automatically builds in all the fundamental features like caesar controls, windows control and so forth. And that let you focus on finishing touches may be a translucent side bar, pull down menus, whatever features will make your Mac, your app just great on the Mac. Now this means one development time Team for the first time can build a single app that can expand all the way iPhone, to iPad, to Mac. Now, we've been working with a number of developers previewing catalyst technology and, we've already seen some great Mac apps. For instance, the great racing game Asphalt 9 Legends from GameLoft, here's what they had to say, we had Asphalt 9 Legends for the Mac running on the first day. It looks stunning and runs super fast using metal on powerful Mac hardware and Twitter. Excited to come back to the Mac with a native app. They said we have Twitter for Mac running including native Mac features in just days. Now a single team can efficiently manage Twitter for iPhone, iPad. iPad and Mac. And finally we asked Atlassian developers of geo cloud leading project management solution for agel software development to give catalyst to try. and to tell you more about it I like to invite Rob Chatfield, Senior iOS engineer to the stage. Rob, come on up. Thanks Glen. Has been on the web for years. And recently, we've put a lot of effort into mobile, like our iOS app that offers quick and easy access to your projects on the go. Many of you have asked us for a similar experience on the Mac. And well today I am thrilled to announce that we've done just that. We're impressed that we were able to get the JIRA project up and running in just a few days and it's a huge project. Now our IOS stuff are Mac stuff too. One code based, one team. Here is a preview, the board's view looks amazing on the Mac display with pretty of room for multitasking. And the benefit of this being a native app is that it's insanely fast. We can switch between this views instantly. So. [UNKNOWN] The level of performance you just don't get on the web. And this is one project. So all the work we did on iPad automatically translated to the Mac, like keyboard shortcuts, spotlight and drag and drop. And it was easy to add those finishing touches that make it perfect for the desktop. For example, we added our top tasks into the custom to Toolbar. All of this never would have happened without project catalyst. We are super excited to be bringing the Dura app to Mac, and can't wait for you to try it. So look for DuraCloud in the Mac app store later this year. Thank you very much. [APPLAUSE] [BLANK_AUDIO]
