    WOW That subforum is DEAD. Many views no replies for most topics, perhaps it should be made into a regular forum for more visibility? It's quite an important topic..?

    the 'point' of this forum is for learning- and yes learning mobile dev is a 'learning' topic- generally you need to know the code languages behind the device you are coding for-
    examples...
    Android: to develop android apps, you need to know/understand Java
    Mac-Anything: to develop you need to know/understand objective-C
    HTC: to develop you need to know/understand .net framework

    by the time you can efficiently code for those devices, you are more at a level where you just give input and help- your 'community role' changes from a 'learner' to a 'mentor/teacher/etc'

    For example- the question's I sporadically pose WRT android are masked- I post them as Java, bc the issues I have in my android app not working are not an android Q, but a Java Q... when you need specifics Android, Mac, etc... they usually have established communities.

    mobile development WRT app development is a niche- and not one many here seem to be in... that sub-forum's intent is not really for app development, but more for targeting mobile device rendering- or at least that's what I gather from it

    I code C hash-tag .Net
    Reference: W3C W3CWiki .Net Lib
    Validate: html CSS
    Debug: Chrome FireFox IE

    Never been in there myself, all I know is its a relatively new forum.

    But I'm with you. Learn the language itself instead; choose a platform to develop for to start with, then move from there. Really the only major change is the rendering. With Java and Android (which I've never developed for; I used midp way back for some older mobile development so I presume its still mostly the same except likely the gui), you simply write it as java code, and swap the gui from awt/swing to the android gui (which I'm afraid I don't know what it is, but I could probably find it).
