Can I create smart-phone apps on

Can I create smart-phone apps on

Yes or no?

Is it possible to create apps for the iPhone? If not what about android?


RE: Can I create smart-phone apps on


You can create
  • C# apps using Xamarin
  • C++ apps using Marmalade
  • Apps for apple devices using the Apple SDK in all sorts of languages except
  • Apps for android devices using the Android SDK in Java or C
The problems with these "multi-device" systems are
  • The applications do not follow Apple or Android GUI styles - they are basically window styles
  • Not all the widgets are available

RE: Can I create smart-phone apps on

So what's the recommended language for iPhone?

What's the recommended language for Android?


RE: Can I create smart-phone apps on

In case anyone's interested. Xojo has a visual basic based compiler that can be used to across platforms.

However, it's not very good and it seems out dated. Plus, they hardly let you use it before sending you a bunch of e-mails to upgrade (i.e. pay) for a licensed version.

Android - use Java and android SDK or C++ and Android NDK
