[Link] C++ For Cross-Platform Mobile Development

Post icon  Posted 01 January 2013 - 11:34 PM

I came across an article advocating C++ as a cross-platform mobile solution. What are your thoughts? Do you use a different cross-platform mobile solution?


When it comes to mobile development mind share, Javascript, HTML, Objective-C, and Java reign supreme. But developers seeking a cost-effective approach to multiplatform mobile development may find an ace in the hole in an old friend: C++.

C++ can be leveraged for building native applications for Google Android, Apple iOS, Windows Phone and RT, and RIM BlackBerry 10, says John Thomas, director of product management at Embarcadero Technologies. Developers, he says, are "starting to realize that this approach of having to use the native tools for each of those environments is very expensive, and they're looking for a solution."

But can C++ grow beyond its game development niche? According to Thomas, business apps could also be a strong fit.

I much prefer Java with CodenameOne. The UI APIS are just like Swing.
