Android?
« on: October 30, 2014, 01:14:12 AM »
Since the iOS version is released (a very big congratulations by the way) its thread should be for iOS questions only....

I would like to know if there are plans for an Android version anytime soon (by soon I mean in the next year or so....)

I do hope you bring it to android (cardwarden almost refuses to) it is the last major program that I am looking for on a mobile device....

TLDR: Congrats on iOS, do you plan on Android?

If I'm not mistaken, the main hurdle to an android app at the moment is the fact that Trevor doesn't  have an android device to do his testing on.

Oh.... I guess that would do it....

Do you think people would go for a PayPal kind of thing to pool funds so he can get one?

If I got enough money for one, I'd make one. It would be pretty simple to port, I would think. What model of android would you suggest would make a good device that is typical of android devices?

Mine's a Google Nexus 7. I've tried out a few of the others. It's not the cheapest one on the market, but it has some nice storage space and processing power which is why I like it.

Mine is a Nexus...

It appears to be a common brand along with the Galaxy....

Genymotion is a Android testing median. If you want to test internet aspects, gotta pay($136 USD if i remember right). Never used or anything but it's still an option. There is a free to use option(just make a free account, download and install). I'd love to get my hands on Lackey on my driod but i'm also broke/jobless...

At $136 wouldn't it make more sense to just get a real device?

Is there something different about an emulator than working with a real device?

As a test for the multiple devices, it could be a better option using the free-2-use option instead of buying so many different devices...

Could you put up a kickstarter? I don't quite know there terms of service.

How much are you looking at?

Well, you could simply borrow someones android,  no doubt you'll make enough money off android sales to probably afford your own device.  I'd highly recommend getting an Nvidia shield.

Quite frankly, an Android version of lackyCCG would be a dream come true for most of us.

[Facepalm] There are other ways to go about Android. I've mentioned before back in the last post I made to the Ipad version that the development kit includes an android emulator.

I even provided a link to the compiler and a place that teaches how to program android.

Emulators don't work well for developing things like an interface. You don't know if a button is going to be a nice size or in the right place unless you are holding the device.

Unfortunately with an android, checking the button size will only show you the size for that one device. Unlike iphone and Ipads, there is no standard android sizes, each device varies considerably. Most emulators on the other hand have the ability to change the screen size to any you would like to check. This enables you to test many devices at a low cost. And as far as I know the android sdk's emulator is superb.
