We have a solid 3d engine based in Unity, and also an experimental one based in Unreal.

100% precision on cube queries and is a self-sufficient structure which requires no access to the fact table.Mobile Device Applications, Social Media Analytics, Cloud Meta-Indexing.Sound Interesting?
|4||My first app, Workout Tracker, is a no nonsense, no bells and whistles app to track personal workout progress. Focus is on quality, ease of use and ability to add and edit exercises and documentation to meet personal needs. The idea is to let the user focus on the workout and not the app, but to provide a simple and easy way to organize and progress through a program at the user’s pace and level of experience. Future enhancements would include the use of Android capabilities that would make interface with the device “self tracking” with minimal user interaction but provide accurate and detailed tracking and history.|
|5||If you are a mobile developer, mobile apps crashes has always been a tough problem. You certainly have asked yourself the following questions:
Was WiFi open during that crash?
What locales had been installed by the user?
What was the current SDK version?
How many devices did that error affect?
BugSense gives you the full context so you can start improving your apps asap! Focus on your app not your bugs!

It has been installed on over 50,000 phones and grew by 250% last quarter.I worked at Google for more than 5 years and won the prestigious Google Founders Award for my work on the AdSense team.
