General Development "We are proud to announce the open source release of J2ObjC, a Google-authored translator that converts Java source code into Objective-C source for iPhone/iPad applications. J2ObjC enables Java code to be part of an iOS application's build, as no editing of the generated files is necessary. The goal is to write an application's non-UI code (such as data access, or application logic) in Java, which can then be shared by Android apps, web apps (using GWT), and iOS." Huh.

>Just use Mono with MonoTouch and MonoDroid
What, and add a bunch of bloat to my app? No thanks. The default system APIs can already add enough of that and, especially in the case of Android apps, they really don't need to be any slower. Write once, run everywhere doesn't really work as well as most people seem to think.

Meanwhile & pushing aside prejudices, the facts seem to be that ~Mono is the way which quite possibly gives most straightforward multi-platform capabilities with nice performance (adequate for that most demanding category: games), and numerous multi-platform examples in appstores - some of them quite high-profile (Bastion, for example - Xbox, Windows, iOS, OSX, Linux Humble Bundle)
