You can check out screenshots and descriptions of most of the winners of the first round of the first Android Developer Challenge at http://code.google.com/android/images/adc1r1_deck.pdf. I so can’t wait to buy an Android phone. I hope they don’t suck.
My name is Mark Doliner. I’m a computer software engineer living and working in North Carolina, USA. I worked in the San Francisco Bay area for 13 years before moving back East in 2019. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have any thoughts on iPhone vs. Android in terms of development? I’ve only looked at iPhone dev and don’t know much about Android. Pros? Cons?
Good question! I just wrote this: http://thekingant.livejournal.com/81183.html which might shed a little light.
I think the “your application is only active when the user is looking at it” thing for the iPhone is probably a big problem for a lot of people. It’s possible Apple has already conceded to change that–it seems like it’s only a matter of time.
