While I find these posts useful I think it's time to re-think this post which is overly mechanical and only post interesting news from the week rather than "everything". So this week we'll try something new, I'll discuss the news in general and the questions/answers I find valuable only. I'll ignore the other questions and this should make the post more "digestible".
One of a kind set of featuresCodename One makes cross platform development simple, seamless and maintainable
High DPI Support
Layout managers, multi-images, 9-piece borders and dozens of features designed to dynamically adapt your UI to all resolutions/densities.
Builtin Common Controls
Side menus, swipe containers, pull to refresh, infinite scroll and many other patterns are builtin
Full access to native
When you need to integrate with native features you can invoke Objective-C/Dalvik code thru native interfaces while maintaining portability!
Works with All IDE's!
NetBean, Eclipse & IntelliJ are fully supported
Codename One is native to Android and generates native C code for iOS. It's as if you coded the app in C by hand.
GUI Builder/Fast Simulator
Apps can be hand coded or built with drag and drop, the Codename One device simulator is remarkably fast for short development cycles
