The only thing that i like from the iphone are the games.Has anyone ever been successful at porting iphone games to the g1?Or even just being able to make some sort of emulator just for the games?Any answers would really be appreciated!if someone knows how i would love to see the game rope n fly or something similar to it. it seems like a simple game, i want to start to learn how to write my own stuff for android and then i would just try myself.but however i don't know how yet.Also since most people have g1's with multi-touch i was also wondering about any multi touch games? especially the skateboarding game touch grind.
I got to thinking since people managed to port Android to the Iphone why couldn't we do vice versa? Is it because the Iphone OS is not open source?? The main reason I REALLY want to do this is for the awesome games. An emulator perhaps would be great
This questions comes as my team is about to under-go development for a mobile app targeting iphone, android and qt. We aim to complete the iphone version first, and then port to android and qt, and it would be great to know any tips or ideologies to grasp/employ from the outset, that would make the porting process as seamless as possible.
I'm sure there a few of you who have completed their iphone version of an app first, and then gone about developing an android version. I am keen to know any of the hurdles that you encountered, or things you wish you knew from the start.
More specifically, the app we are making will contain forms and some visuals(charts)
I'd like to port my iPhone app to Android. The interface is constructed with artwork designed for 320x480 resolution. What steps do I need to take when I'm constructing the XML interface for the Android so that my GUI will be compatible with the different screen sizes (or at least the most popular ones...)?
someone showed me their iphone I have to admit, my jaw dropped and I was drooling when I saw some of their games (i would that all games were freebie versions)
Question: why does the android platform not have games that are as good??
I remember seeing one games, I think it was called scooter - the whole damn screen moved as u mived the iphone left and right I only played for a minute - but it looked damn awesome why dont we have as good games! the persons phone: heck, it was only an iphone 3g - so u cant say it was better hardware or anything angry birds - I like - apart from that, I haven't seen any games I would even rate (ok, so angry birds is just worms game reinvented - but the subtle use of great graphics make it brilliant)
Important: I have an x10 mini pro which is STILL running android 1.6 - is this the reason why? are there better games on 2.1 and 2.2? or is it to do with the fact that there are better developers for the iphone?
Are there any multiplayer interactive games where someone with an Android phone can play with someone who has an iPhone? I'm looking for something like Words With Friends where two people who have iPhones can play scrabble together.
So we all know iPhone has better games than Android. And I'm love the "Fruit Ninja" game which is like the only one I enjoy playing on my Evo because it has good graphics and above all it's fun. I was wondering if there is anyway to get iPhone games on Android phones? Or if we can request someone to make some of the iPhone games for Android.
Alright so lets say i have a game on the wii that i downloaded to my SD micro Card and I downloaded the Nes Emulator on my HTC Hero. (yes ik you have to have and adapter for the wii and then the smaller memory card for the phone) But would I be able to play that game for NES (that i downloaded from the wii) on my HTC Hero?
Browsing around the net at work today for Bluetooth Game Controllers, I came across a Mini Bluetooth Keyboard HERE - it's also selling on Ebay. It claims to be compatible with Android, but as we're all learning Android on one phone isn't the same as Android on another.
I'm wondering two things really: 1) Anyone know if it is actually compatible with Android and moreso if it's compatible with HTC Incredible and 2) If it is compatible, once connected, can you use it in conjunction with Game Emulators (I have the popular one for GBA) so that I could use the buttons on there to play the games.
It's the perfect size for a game controller (too bad they don't also make one for that purpose) and would be much better than the touch screen controls which impede on the game.
Seriously, emulation is not good for performance, but most roms running on gensoid look and play better that games developed for Android. Sonic 3 looks lovely, runs at 60fps and never stutters. It even seems to look higher rez than most Android apps.Android platformer games are nowhere near as good looking or smooth.So what the hell is going on? The hardware on top end Android phones (Desire, galaxy etc) is clearly capable.
I am trying to port 1.6 gmail app to android 2.0 on the emulator. I was able to install but when I execute the app I get: no classdef found error 1) E/AndroidRuntime(494): Uncaught handler: thread main exiting due to uncaught exception E/AndroidRuntime(494): java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com.google.android.providers.gmail.MailProvider$1 E/AndroidRuntime(494): at com.google.android.providers.gmail.MailProvider.onCreate(MailProvider.java: 221) E/AndroidRuntime(494): at android.content.ContentProvider.attachInfo(ContentProvider.java:710) E/AndroidRuntime(494): at android.app.ActivityThread.installProvider(ActivityThread.java:4267) E/AndroidRuntime(494): at android.app.ActivityThread.installContentProviders(ActivityThread.java:4042) E/AndroidRuntime(494): at android.app.ActivityThread.handleBindApplicat
How to resolve the class def error I can find the relevant jar files under /system/framwork is there an environment variabel that can be set in the emulator prob thats missing a link. 2) Is there a gmail app apk thats available for android 2.0 if so how do I find the apk file to install 3) How do I get the market app to the emulator?
iPhone MMOG Pocket Legends To Go Cross-Platform News can be found there. Finally is all I can say.For those who don't want to read it it doesn't list a date that it should be ready by but it does indeed say Android will be one of the platforms they are porting to.
