Acquia Releases Mobile App Code for Drupal Create

Acquia, a provider of enterprise and cloud solutions, announced the release of the source code for its mobile app Drupal Create, allowing any Drupal content contributor to post content to their websites directly from any iOS device.

The full Objective-C source code for Drupal Create is available on GitHub, providing developers a fully functional codebase to build sites with custom mobile apps that communicate with Drupal.

In addition, developers can build Drupal-specific content publishing apps, addressing the needs of site owners and content contributors. Custom apps can be modified to make use of an iOS device’s features, i.e. location, social APIs, camera and speaker. Drupal Create allows content authors to blog posts, articles, photos, and custom content to any Drupal 7 site.

Developed in collaboration with WorkHabit (an Acquia partner), Drupal Create was built on top of the Drupal iOS Software Development Kit, which is also available on GitHub.

“Drupal has thousands of community-contributed modules and themes. With this release, Acquia is kick-starting development of mobile content publishing apps for Drupal,” said Dries Buytaert, CTO and co-founder of Acquia. “As mobile quickly becomes a dominant driver of digital experiences, the Drupal community is increasingly focused on content delivery beyond the desktop. By contributing the Drupal Create codebase, we can leverage the rapid innovation of the Drupal community through offering developers powerful, open source code that they can use, tweak and, ultimately, improve.”

Burlington, MA-based Acquia was founded in 2007 with over 700 enterprise customers. Offering a variety of Cloud solutions specifically designed for Drupal, Acquia gives global organizations the ability to rapidly deploy and manage multichannel content across Web and mobile devices. More than 2,500 companies including Twitter, Warner Music Group, Humana, Stanford University, Mercedes-Benz and the New York MTA have used Acquia to scale their digital experiences.
