The newly released Good Dynamics (GD) SDK for Android and iOS contains several new features designed to extend the functionality of Good Dynamics-based applications.
Client Certificate Support
Good Dynamics applications will be able to automatically authenticate using client certificates. Client certificates, either loaded by users via the GD self-service portal or retrieved by the Good Console from an organization Certificate Authority, will be automatically downloaded and used by Good Dynamics apps as needed.
Client certificates will be used for authenticating users against internal resources or for Direct Connect connections. Good Dynamics admin will be able to:
Provision client certificates to GD users
Revoke client certificates from GD users
Allow users to provisions their own client certificates, via the self-service portal
Require password for client certificate provision
iOS 9/Xcode 7.x Compatibility
GD –based applications will be able to use the iOS 9 target to build. This will allow for full compatibility with iOS latest system version sand devices. In addition this version of the GD SDK is fully compatible with the latest Xcode development system, version 7.x.
OCSP support for S/MIME Certificates
S/MIME functionality will take advantage of the Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) standard to validate its certificates and revoke them if needed. OCSP is a well-recognized Internet standard supported by all browsers.
Android Apache HTTP Support
To maintain compatibility with Android applications built to run on Android M we have added support for Apache HTTP in the Android GD SDK.
The GD PhoneGap plugin has been improved by adding support for writing binary data securely and providing compatibility with Cordova 5.x.

This week we would like to highlight a great puzzle solving game that will keep you hooked for hours. Evo Explores will keep you thinking and looking for the solution. It all begins with a simple touch of the screen to move your player. The goal? To reach the goal! The first few levels teach how the obstacles can be maneuvered to help you reach the finish, but soon you are on your own to discover the secrets hidden in each world. Don’t let your eyes deceive you!
To get more information about this great app, we asked the developers of Stampede games, a few questions.
“Explore impossible geometry and optical illusions!”
Where did the idea come from?
The main idea was taken from original game Monument Valley. I fell in love with that game after a minute of playing. I finished the game the same evening and knew that I wanted to play more games like this and decided to make a similar game myself.
How long did it take to develop the app?
Because Evo Explores is my first independent project, I hugely underestimated the development requirements. At the beginning I thought it would take several months to build the game but it turned out to be more than a year of full-time development.
Who are your ideal customers?
From the first day of development I kept in mind that I wanted to make the game accessible for all players, regardless of skill level. I wanted them to be able to enjoy Evo Explores and I hope I achieved that goal.
Why should customers buy your app?
If you are not a fan of endless games and you want something meaningful and peaceful, then you should definitely try Evo Explores. The game will break boundaries between reality and fantasy.
Note: If the game is not translated to your native language I would be very grateful if you help me translate Evo Explores here.
