Android is an increasingly popular platform.  Chuck started programming for the platform in 2009. The first app was published in 2012.  Our primary production environment for Android-only app development is Java in the Eclipse framework with the Android Development Tools.  This native device environment is installed on Windows, Linux and Mac hardware. An early business app was released in 2013.  Apps are published in Google Play or you can click on these links from your Android device to download and install the apps.

Apple hand-held devices use the iOS operating system.  Chuck began programming for the iOS platform in early 2013.  Apps are release through the applicable Apple Store.  Applications will run on the iPod, iPhone, and iPad devices.

Business and personal users alike are demanding that their apps run on a variety of hardware platforms. Phone Gap is a development environment which enables the development of applications which can be exported as native applications to Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows, and WebOS.

Easily the most impressive player in the cross-platform development world is the Xamarin toolset for Microsoft's Visual Studio. Xamarin enables development of a single code base deployed on three platforms - iOS, Android, and WindowsPhone 8. This tool requires that the ones using it are functional in the native toolsets for all three platforms. Unlike other cross-platform tools, this is not a browser-based body of code, but more like a native application in the way it flows. Once compiled, there is less speed degradation than other cross platform tools. Maintaining the code base is much more simple than that required in supporting three native apps.
