    I've searched for a while and can't find an answer to this question. Maybe because the PDK is still in private beta.

    Converting a video game from iphone (objective c) to pdk c++ seemed to be pretty easy.

    What would it take to convert something like pocket informant for the iphone?

    Is it a big deal or could it be done relatively easy? Or what about WinMo apps?

    What is the technical hurdle? Can any former iphone devs share your thoughts?

    The answer is simply no. Most games are simply C code using OpenGL, and then you wrap that code with some native phone code. Most of the code is shared and simply has to be recompiled.

    You'd have to write a iPhone emulator and then recompile the apps, which would be a huge undertaking. Projects like ReactOS have taken over 10 years to get simple windows 95 apps running...

    so for games your saying this is very easy to do, basically a simple nearly straight port for the pre, just some wrapping?


    perhaps thats why gameloft stated they plan on porting most of there games to the pre.

    "@markifurung We're planning on porting most of our games to Palm Pre, so you can expect some of them really soon "
    There are four lights.
