This post follows the previous one about building for MonoTouch and WindowsPhone7 by porting the example to Google's Android platform using MonoDroid.
Here's how it looks (no need to identify which platform is which :)
As before, the code is available on github/conceptdev/RestaurantGuide - for comparison here is a shot of the three
A couple of observations:
- One of the reasons the iOS/MonoTouch solution is so 'neat' is because I have not used the 'UI Designer' for that platform (ie. Interface Builder) so there are no 'markup' files for the user interface (ie.
.xibfiles). The entire layout is done in C# for the MonoTouch example, whereas the WP7 and Android version use
- These examples 'just work' - they don't claim to be best-practice in designing an app for any of these platforms*.
* for a quite neat cross-platform design (at least across MonoDroid and WP7) see @gshackles TwitterSearcher sample
p.s. does anyone know what the Android equivalent of an "indexed list" is? Pls comment or @conceptdev... thx
