V-Play 2.14.1 adds Live Code Reloading Support for macOS & Linux Desktop. With this addition, Live Code Reloading now allows to run and reload your projects on iOS and Android from all desktop platforms. No native iOS and Android build tools required.
V-Play 2.14.1 also introduces the new SocialView component for adding social features like user profile, leaderboard or even a full-featured messenger to your apps and games. It offers a cleaner and more customizable interface, compared to the more game-oriented VPlayGameNetworkView and VPlayMultiplayerView.
This update also adds support for Qt 5.9.3.

For example, if you are doing small iterations to fine-tune UI elements in apps. Same with animations, game-mechanics and so on. It slows down your development speed and therefore decreases your productivity.
V-Play Live reloads your project on every connected device, within seconds after code changes. This reduces the long compilation and deployment times, to only a couple of seconds. V-Play Live also allows you to run and test your applications on iOS from a Windows or Linux desktop. You don’t need to install any native SDKs for deployment with V-Play Live.

After we save the changes, all connected clients update their view, within a second!
