Comment on "Simple Truths About Cross-Platform Apps"
by Chris Howard — Mar 26
The point was to help incoming developers from other platforms understand that a "cheap" port just won't fly.

On that, you certainly get no argument from me!

Thanks too for the clarifications, I see now the point of your piece about using cross-platform development kit, as opposed to developing cross platform for each platform's strengths and features.

And again I agree. Most of the former, esp those done in Java, leave me cold.

One app that does spring to mind now, and that looks and works great on Windows and OS X and uses a some sort of CPDK, is ArtRage. However, it has developed its own unique GUI which is neither Windows nor OS X. But it works coz it's so dang hot!
