Android :: Developign X-platform Mobile Apps On Ubuntu

Oct 16, 2010

I'm a junior iphone developer and got familiar with developing on xcode on top of Mac OS.I wanna build some Cross-Platform apps in the near future and wanna Use Ubuntu as my Operating system.I found many solutions that run only on Mac OS or need mac to build apps for iphone but this is not what i need. i need something which can keep me far from mac (for some reasons).I heard about AIR packager for iOS and that also AIR does apps for android but i'm not a flash guy (but can learn if it will do the job), so i wanna guidance from experience people like you about what is the suitable route should I take.

Android :: Web Apps For Cross Platform Mobile Software Development?

Feb 8, 2010

I am a C++ programmer interested in developing applications for Android as well as the iPhone platform. I have explored both these platforms by writing simple applications in Java (Android) and Objective-C (iphone). But the fact is that I am not comfortable with either of these languages, and it bothers me that I have to write 2 very different versions of the same application to support both platforms. (And then what do I do to run it on a Nokia phone?)Is using web technologies (JavaScript/HTML/CSS) a viable solution for writing apps which will run on multiple mobile platforms? I have heard of Appcelerator and PhoneGap, but I am not sure how mature these products are. I'd appreciate any feedback from folks who have used web apps as a solution for developing cross platform mobile apps.

Android :: Learn Mobile Programming On Platform

Nov 14, 2009

I'm beginning to learn mobile programming on the Android platform. I'm up for working with any particular base SDK. I just want to hear some suggestions from the community about what types of applications I should start with to help learn more advanced interactions with the platform.There are of course the Standard Hello World, calculator, etc. But by now I am bored with all of those.What do you all make when learning a new language?

Android :: 3D Engines For Development On Any Mobile Platform

Sep 29, 2009

I am planning to develop a game for all of the mobile platform and have pretty much zeroed down on the concepts of the game. but the only issue I'm facing as of now is that I have no idea what would be the best libraries + 3d Engine to us to achieve the best results on the hardware on some of the upcoming mobiles. I'm talking about the iPhone 3GS, the new WinMo and Android devices with the famed Snapdragon, other processors from Samsung, ARM, Qualcomm and even Intel and AMD.as of now i plan to use the ogre libraries for now, but then what will offer portability?? This is much more of a design question rather than just coding. Any help is appreciated, others who wish to collaborate are very much welcome too. just drop me a mail.

Android :: Download File On Mobile Platform

Jul 5, 2010

I've some files stored in a SQL database. When a user visits a url with the given ID, the BLOB data is retrieved from the database to the webbrower However, the iPhone (Safari) can't download a *.txt and *.doc file. It says: "Safari can't download this file". A pdf can(!) be downloaded and viewed.On Android none of the files can be downloaded.Is this because the iPhone and Android just can't handle all files? Or am I doing something wrong in the Response.

Android :: AR On Mobile Phones Using Adobe Flash Platform?

Nov 13, 2010

I am interested in implementing an Augmented Reality application for mobile phones using Adobe Flash Platform.
Can you please let me know if any sources is available for me to find out how to start? I'm not sure what software I need to use to implement AR but as I can understand I need: ARToolKit Marker Generator to create the marker matching with the 3D image, then FLARToolKit to analyze the image from the marker and Papervision3D to create an object that shares that same space with the marker. Can you please let me know if what I wrote is correct and advise me how to start the implementation on Adobe Flash platform?

Android :: Encrypt Outgoing Data? (any Mobile Platform)

Sep 13, 2010

Would it be possible for me to build an application that enables people to encrypt call coming to me with my public key and then for me to decrypt the call data at my end using my own private key. This way I basically have a more secure communication channel which I am assuming because RSA is hard to crack would be difficult to monitor.I am asking this question from a research point of view and have absolutely not considered the factor as to how computationally feasible would such an application be. I would just like to know if there is a way for me to intercept my outgoing data using any built functions.

Android :: Which Mobile Platform Would Be More Rewarding To Learn As Developer?

Oct 1, 2009

I am interested in getting my feet wet in PDA/mobile development.The only two drivers for me are the drive to learn cool (or at least, new) stuff, and may be to code some app that I felt I really needed but lacked. As such, I would like to know what the comparative benefits/downsides would be for me as a developer in choosing one of the three platforms (iPhone vs Palm Pre vs. Android.I will have access to any of the 3 but not to Windows mobile).This is not a duplicate of this question, since I do not care at all about that question's data points (cost of the handheld, popularity of the platform). Also, just to be clear, my goal is not financial at all - I don't plan to make money off of such development nor directly use the skills in the area I might obtain in my career (e.g. I work on stuff that has zilch mobile exposure and will remain so). So concerns such as "installed user base" are pretty irrelevant. All I care about are tangible (learning) and intangible (sheer joy of it) benefits to me as a developer.Also, please be positive and don't put down other platforms or otherwise use this as a holy platform war excuse. I have edit privileges and will mercilessly edit any un-backed-up-by-facts attacks on any platform that aren't downvoted.

Android :: What's Quickest Mobile Platform To Create Bluetooth Application On?

Aug 26, 2010

Most of the time I write code for embedded modules or small programs on my computer to analyze data that said code generates.Now I've been asked to prototype a mobile application to analyze/display that data instead.I have no (6-year old CS101) experience with either of the popular languages (Obj-C/Java?), let alone with any of the APIs/libraries available on the 4-5 popular mobile OSs, so I'm more or less at square one.Adapting the embedded hardware to talk to a phone is fairly straightforward, just add a Bluetooth module that I can configure to emulate a serial port (using SPP profile), but I don't know where to start on the other side.What sort of mobile OS/device should I target for ease/speed of developing a Bluetooth serial port profile (SPP) application from having equal (no) experience on them all?

Android :: Which Mobile Platform To Use Creation Of Musicians Support Application?

Sep 22, 2009

I'm a programmer looking to play in the mobile world. The application I'd like to play with would support my musical hobbies. I suspect a mobile phone with a music player could easily be programmed to support a classical musicians practice sessions. Access to media player APIs without the need to open external apps or do clunky things with files.Adequate access to playback API to create specific notes and beat patterns. As a hobby application, this should not require expensive tooling.I can switch to a new phone to use the application. Bonus points for something that easily ports to a netbook.I will admit I new to the world of sexy phones. I currently use an obsolete voice device with text messaging. I won't revealing my current flavor of programming because learning a new platform is just fine.

General :: Why Do Cross-platform Apps Seem To Run Better On IOS

May 1, 2013

For example, I just purchased an HTC One which is running the very latest Snapdragon S600 chip and Adreno 320 and I'm comparing it to the iPhone 5 (A6 and PowerVR SGX543MP3).

Here are a few applications (mostly games) that I've tried on both devices:

* Fruit Ninja - Touch input is delayed by about half a second on the HTC One but instant on iOS.

* Simpons Tapped Out - The voice sometimes stutters and moving buildings just isn't as fluid as iOS.

* Browser (Chrome and Android default) - Scrolling isn't as smooth.

Like I said, I'm honestly not biased one way or the other but this is just what I have noticed. The iPhone 5 has a much lower resolution but I've also had similar results on the iPad Mini (1024x768 resolution).

Does every application written for Android need to optimized for every individual CPU and perhaps these applications weren't optimized yet?

Android :: Mobile Apps Vs Mobile Web

Jun 18, 2010

Recently I logged into GMail with my browser instead of the GMail app, and discovered what I've read before elsewhere... that the GMail mobile web page seems cooler and better, than the app.

So, I've been thinking... which is better? Is either better? Can they both be equally good?

Either way, it occurred to me, it's interesting that all the Android blogs fall all over themselves almost weekly to come out with various "Best X Android Apps" articles, but I don't think I've seen any articles about the best mobile web pages for Android (or any smart phone for that matter).

I understand the money is to be made in apps, and that not much can (yet) be done with the web that you can do with an app (until we have workable Flash?) but surely there must be some great mobile sites out there that are better than, or equal to, apps?

I'm appealing to all of you then to make your suggestions for Best or at least good mobile web pages to use on our Android phones. I'll be looking around myself, and will possibly turn the results into a blog post of my own.

Here are a couple of starters that seem to be better than the app versions:

- Gmail: nicer interface, quick access to GTalk and Buzz as well as Calender, etc.

- Evernote: www.evernote.com/m Evernote has a really good mobile web site in case you don't want to download the app.

Android :: Porting Java Apps To Android Platform

Oct 16, 2009

I know Java apps can be run in Android. But what I want to know is this: I have a perfectly normal Java app and I want to port it to an android platform. What changes would I need to do to my app in terms of GUI and other code to make it usable in Android? I know Android uses XML file to control the look and feel of its app. So would I need to change my GUI completely? I just want to know the general overview of how porting may be done. If anyone could point me to right resources, that would be great. Also, for your info I'm a newbie to developing android app.

Android :: OAuth Secrets In Mobile Apps

Dec 19, 2009

When using the OAuth protocol, you need a secret string obtained from the service you want to delegate to. If you are doing this in a web app, you can simply store the secret in your data base or on the file system, but what is the best way to handle it in a mobile app (or a desktop app for that matter)?

Storing the string in the app is obviously not good, as someone could easily find it and abuse it.

Another approach would be to store it on you server, and have the app fetch it on every run, never storing it on the phone. This is almost as bad, because you have to include the URL in the app. I don't believe using https is any help.

The only workable solution I can come up with is to first obtain the Access Token as normal (preferably using a web view inside the app), and then route all further communication through our server, where a script would append the secret to the request data and communicates with the provider. Then again, I'm a security noob, so I'd really like to hear some knowledgeable peoples' opinions on this. It doesn't seem to me that most apps are going to these lengths to guarantee security (for example, Facebook Connect seems to assume that you put the secret into a string right in your app).

I don't believe the secret is involved in initially requesting the Access Token, so that could be done without involving our own server. Am I correct?

General :: Communicating With Mobile Wallet Apps?

Jun 11, 2012

I know that the stuff regarding the secure element inside certain phones is kept on a strictly need-to-know basis and Google only lets certain people have access, but how about the apps that are running on the phone, such as Google Wallet?

What I mean is, is it possible to write an App that communicates with something like Google Wallet (not necessarily this app specifically) instead of an NFC device? At its simplest, when you pass your phone over a credit card terminal, it communicates via the NFC chip to the wallet application. What I'm looking to do is bypass that terminal and just communicate directly with the app via another app, sending the necessary commands directly. Is this possible? (If so, I'm not looking for a how-to, just if it's doable or not).

I know it might be complicated and there's a lot to learn, APDU commands and all that - that's fine.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Mobile 3G Internet / Not All Apps Work

Oct 12, 2010

I have a strange problem with my Galaxy S. I have unlimited mobile internet(3G), but not all Apps work.
For example when I am on the mobile internet network, de standard Internet browser does not work. It just displays a white page whatever I'm trying to load.Other programs say there is no internet connection avaible or just don't respond.
However there are 2 programs that d� work. Opera Mini and eBuddy can work with Wi-Fi and 3G. Other Apps like to check if it's gonna rain, or a News RSS viewer etcetera does not work.They only do with Wi-Fi.I have no clue what to search for and also no idea if it's my mobile phone or my provider(it's named 'Hi', it's dutch).
