this is a quick post just to say that I’m not dead.
I’m simply at a turn point of the development. I’m deciding how to keep on developing the app.
I started working on the development of the KX3 Remote for iOS that should be a KX3 Companion version for iOS that can only work by using “remote control” solutions like the Serial Over Internet solution, the Piglet/Pigremote or Serial Over Bluetooth.
The fact is that developing for iOS and developing for Android are two completely different matters. There’s nothing, not even a single line of code that I can reuse. It means that I have to redo almost everything I already made for Android.
I started studying Objective-C and iOS development and it’s an interesting stuff but the problem is if I have time (and will) to develop two separated versions for two different platforms. The answer I gave myself is… probably not.
I’m trying to port app development into my “daily job” so that what I do for the KX3 Companion/Remote also is useful for my job and vice versa but that is not enough.
So actually I’m at a turning point. Since the last few days I started exploring some of the multi platform app development solutions and there are some very interesting and good ones.
Actually I’m evaluating Corona SDK that is a nice environment based on the Lua programming language that I already know and love 🙂
This week I think I’ll take a “definitive” decision. I’ll keep you updated.
