Say Hello to Android

For the last month or so, I've been slowly entering a new territory for myself, a new development platform that I've hardly touched before. My new obsession is developing for Android!

Even though I've used smartphones for years and years, I never really got into mobile development. I've have been using Symbian and Windows Mobile based phones since 2005, I believe, and I only got a little past downloading the SDK. Once I got more serious about windows development (the C# era for me) I tried making some apps for Windows Mobile, but it never really stuck to me, never felt natural, or interesting.

Now, I've been using Android phones for almost a year now, and it proved to be really exciting. I love the platform, I love the community, I love the way it allows apps integrate with each other. It's something I haven't seen before, and more. So I decided to give it a try, and couldn't stop since!

At the moment, most of my free time I'm dedicating to the couple projects that I started. One of them it already out in the wild, and within a week it grew it's own fan base. The others are still in the incubation period, but I believe they're growing nicely. I should have some more updates soon about them, as well as my thoughts (and hopefully tips and tricks) about this big new world it opened for me.
