    Default Compatible Markup languages

    Hi ther im very new to mobile app development and i must say i thought as a web developer it would be a breeze but it isnt. I was curious , i know in our web development world we have compatibility issues with browsers and diffrent platforms. In terms of mobile app languages is there anything thats a one size fits all ie ios , android and all the rest , or is everything more or less divided between android and ios , as in the web design world.

    Hi,

    Android and iOS each have their own SDK, so an app created for Android won't work on iOS or vise versa. A well-designed app would have a modular core to make it as painless as possible to support both simultaneously, but the platform-specific stuff would have to be kept in separate projects as best I know.

    Within that, you'll have some considerations for what version of Android or iOS your users are running, if nothing more than checking for the minimum necessary version on starup.

    Unity is a game development tool that lets you write platform-independent games. I've never used it but it's an enterprise-level product and supposedly your games will run on PC, iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and others. Short of something like that though, I think you're pretty much on your own.

    Yea ive come back and basically dove into jave, i consider myself a pretty smart guy but man i will admit java makes me feel like a idiot compared to some of the other programming languages i have learnt, i can now write some basic things, nothing that would get me a job or even deserve the name of a app lol. Its tough man but i am determined. I still have to reference alot when i write something even this far on.
