1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Im pretty sure the only language that Android will understand is Java and xml. I wanted to program in objective C like i do for iPhone and Mac

    Actually, as dongdong pointed out, you can use the Native Development Kit (NDK) to get C/C++ code running on the device. This works by writing native libraries that are packaged with your Java code.

    However, the compiled libraries are processor-model specific, so your application will run on some devices and perhaps not others.

    Also, you cannot write entire applications in C/C++. There are only a limited set of libraries available to the C/C++ code.

    This ability is made available mostly to support high-speed, low-level coding for special needs. It's not really a great general-purpose option yet, but may be some day.

    Because I didn't learn C++ from an idiots guide. I had to take that class in the university because it was a requirement for my major ;)

    Java and c++ are very similar. You won't have any trouble switching over. Just learn the syntax. Java was based on c++ after all.

    Wow old thread!

    Mosync SDK Look it up. It's cross platform. Hope that helps. I've been using it for a few weeks now.

    EDIT: I realise the OP question is old but I figured I'd throw it out there anyways because the thread was resurrected.
