More and more mobile platforms are being launched and sdk's are available to developers. There are various mobile platform are available:
Android, iOS, Moblin, Windows mobile 7, RIM, symbian, bada, maemo etc.
And making of cross platform application is headache for developers. I am searching for common things across the platforms which will help to developers who want to port application to all platforms. Like what are the diff screen resolutions, input methods, open gl support etc.
please share details that you know for the any of platform.
Or are there possibilities, by writing code in html (widget type of thing) and loading it into native application.
I know about the android, in which we can add the web view into application by calling setContentView(view)
Please share the class details where we can add the html view into native application of different type of platforms that you know.
Purpose of this thread is share common details across developers. marking as community wiki.
How is cross platform mobile development done in practice today (year 2013)? [closed]
location: linuxexchange.com - date: August 7, 2014
I am a .NET developer (more than 6 years now) and just starting to learn about mobile/smartphone/tablets development. Logically, I (and probably everybody else out there) would like the application we create to run on all smartphone platforms. It just feels natural from the normal user (layman) perspective that if it's a "mobile app" it should run on mobile device. It shouldn't matter if I own iPhone or Android, mobile app is a mobile app. Note: I am talking about native platform development, not HTML/web apps that can be used from browsers.
So this is just a high-level overview question... what are the current strategies (in year 2013) to deal with this issue? The way I imagine mobile cross platform development works is there's probably a single common code base that implements app's business logic and then for each targeting platform we need to develop GUI part separately. How far is this from truth in practice?
Take for example the popular game "Angry Birds". I played it on iPhon
Android vs. Ubuntu Mobile

As a die-hard fan of Ubuntu, I have waited patiently for a handphone that could run LibreOffice. I was keeping tab on Android phones but surfing the internet, I read recent development of Ubuntu Mobile. Will a respectable Ubuntu Mobile phone be a reality soon? This I will definitely wait for but what phone manufacturer would use it?

Leading global network operators back initiative, including Deutsche Telekom, Etisalat, Smart, Sprint, Telecom Italia, Telefónica and Telenor
Telefonica has teamed up with Mozilla Corp., the company whose Firefox program challenged the dominance of Microsoft Corp. (MSFT)’s Web browser. This week, six additional companies, including Germany’s Deutsche Telekom AG (DTE) and Sprint Nextel Corp. (S), said they will use the platform in other countries, such as Poland. While Android is free, operators currently must accept that the biggest search engine controls the software code and makes advertising money from pushin
[SOLVED] No mobile internet on Samsung Note
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 30, 2013
Galaxy Note II running Android Jelly Bean. Wifi is fine, but no internet on the move. This kills navigation, etc.
I have set mobile data on, and the device has measured 214kb. I have set:
Settings / More Settings / Mobile Networks: Mobile Data; Data Roaming; & a valid APN; Network Mode LTE/GSM/WCDMA(Auto).
A lot of the other crap is not set up because Jelly Bean is clearly not aimed at my tastes with all these chat, IM & blog readers which I never use.
Any ideas what I left out that's costing me my data service?
Will Ubuntu Mobile support Nokia devices?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 29, 2013
I have a Nokia 808 because I'm an idiot and I am locked into it for 2 years on contract and desperately need something other than Symbian. I dunno what I was expecting from the phone, I love the camera and expected and OS that functioned, sadly it is like using a phone from 10 years ago.
Please tell me there will be support for Nokia devices as I believe Symbian is an open platform.... that or Nokia's security is as bad as the rest of the OS.
