There are hundreds of thousands of mobile applications for nearly every purpose in the iOS or Android app stores. Usually they are created with Objective-C toolstacks for iOS devices and Java based for Android handsets. In this article we would like to show you two not so common ways to build native apps with Java and Xtend which help to share code between both worlds and simplify development.
Tabris is the first Java toolkit for the cross-platform development of native mobile applications. It combines native user experience with tailor-made, native controls and functions. But what exactly does native mean?
With the increased interest in iOS LOB applications, there are a lot of opportunities for teams that are willing to cross-train in Objective-C. Somya Jain explains what that entails for C# developers. 2
.NET/Mono has never been a single, unified stack and over the years it continues to grow. In an attempt to clear up some of the confusion this article reintroduces all of the major profiles.
We interviewed Wallace B. McClure, co-author of iPhone Programming with MonoTouch and Android Programming with Mono for Android, about the future of Mono as a development platform for mobile devices.
This article explores how to set up, test out, and work with the MonoTouch debugger while developing iPhone applications, including debugging running applications over Wifi. 2
Tables are common in iPhone apps, but are very specific given the iPhone's constraints. However, Apple offers easy customization, and this article explores creating highly customized iPhone tables. 7
MonoTouch is a Mono based framework for building iPhone applications with C#. Bryan Costanich shows how to use it with the MonoDevelop IDE to quickly start building .NET-based iPhone applications. 9
