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.

Member since:

Using Mono in Android means running two VM alonside each other with lots of marshling between VM, because your .NET application needs to make use of the DalvikVM APIs.

Just code the core of your application in C or C++, and make use of the platform native UI for the best user experience.

As for WP7, just let it die, as WP8 also supports C++.
