Basic Android platform information.

I am thinking of developing an app' for Android mobile devices...

Two questions here:-

1) Does anyone _develop_ for the Android _mobile_ platform?
If so do you use OSX 10.7.5 or greater as your _development_platform_?

2) I know ********* is gonna say that the Android terminal/shell is dreadful... ;o)
...but I have searched the WWW and other relevant sites for the default shell type
and ALL of the available builtins, (not the transient commands as I have found all of those),
just the builtins subset and the default shell; does anyone know?

TIA...

I use MacOS 10.6.8 for Android development (but am not active at it).

Also, I deleted two posts basically telling you to go "elsewhere" if you want to discuss Android development.

You can discuss it here if you want and people who do not want to discuss Android are free to abstain from the discussion.

Having negative opinions about operating systems that "may or may not be one's personal favorite" has always been against the rules here.

Posting negative opinions about Android is not permitted and we don't have an "it's OK to beat up Android because ... exception" to our forum guidelines and rules.

I'm happy to try to help where I can, as I find Android development very interesting and have the development platform on my Mac; but admittedly very little free time to explore as I would like.

Not anymore.....

We have rules here, and putting down other operating systems has been against our rules from the beginning.

This includes Android... definitely.

Hi Neo...

I humbly apologise if I have gotten people into trouble. Not intentional I assure you.
I will be more wary of the way I upload from now on.

Anyhow, thanks for the heads-up.

The screenshot looks mighty interesting...

@neo.........

Mine was one of the posts that you deleted. It was not my intention to degrade this new forum by directing members elsewhere it was just that unix.com's Android forum is new and therefore lacks content currently. However, everything has to start somewhere and I applaud the starting of the Android forum. Unix.com is already the best Unix forum on the planet bar none.

One question I have is this.....

We all know that Unix.com does not carry hack tools or advice about such but, Android being a phone O/S, during my learning process is was necessary for me to do much "breaking and entering" in order to achieve my goals. Is it your intention that Unix.com will carry such material (for Android) in the future?

Once again, congratulations on having the best Unix forum.
