I’ve been wanting to dive into Android development for some time now, and last week, I finally decided to pick an Android phone to play around with. I decided to go with the Nexus S 4G which runs on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread. I bought this phone solely for development purposes; my "normal" phone is an iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.3.5, but I was definitely looking forward to checking out what Google’s Android OS could do. I’ve had the phone for a week now and figured I’d share my thoughts on it and how it compares to iOS. (more...)

I've been pretty busy recently with building a new mobile app that is now nearing completion. I wanted to make use of AIR 2.7 because it has been shown to be much faster on iOS devices than the previous packager. However, as noted in the article, it hasn't yet been implemented in any official tools and is only available via the command line. That wasn't going to cut it for what I needed to do so I went digging around the net with google and came across this post. This was exactly what I was looking for!
