How to Choose the Right Platform for Mobile App Development

Choosing a mobile application development platform is a critical part of the whole development process. When you start planning, you will also have to figure out if you should focus on a native application or cross-platform solutions.So what should businesses consider when evaluating application development tools and a platform for their mobile application? Let’s dive right in with some questions that can work as a guide to help you make a decision which platform is best for app development.

 

mobile – Samsung Android phone rendering chess unicode as Emoji?

I’m developing a [javascript implementation][1] of Singularity Chess and I’m having a really weird issue with rendering on Samsung phones. Samsung phones render unicode chess characters as what appear to be a custom Emoji representation, as opposed to the plain text version. This would not be a problem, except for the fact that the Emoji set has only black pieces.

Is there a nice fix for this, or do I have to use the User Agent string to dynamically switch to a different display method such as SVG?

How to port/convert a Java program to mobile?

I have coded a simple video game in Java. It works fine on all computers that have Java installed. However, I would really like to play it on my smartphone and it would also be nice to be able to play it on pretty much any smartphone no matter what model/company/OpSys etc. Here is my question:

How can I convert my Java video game into something that runs on mobile devices (a smartphone), ideally without completely rewriting the whole source code?

After all, the idea of Java is that you write the code once and then it runs on pretty much all devices. I would not mind copy-pasting my own source code and maybe add/change a few lines of code. But I would really like to avoid having to rewrite it in some completely different language.

Details about my game: It is a simple one-player vs CPU 2D card game, where you click on a few buttons and pictures. Every now and then there is a dialog window. That’s pretty much all. But there are many pages of AI / game logic source code.

Edit/update: On the computers the input for this game is just left-clicking on the buttons. Ideally, on a device with a touch screen, one would just touch the buttons depicted on the screen.
I have not really looked into porting myself that much. My hope was that in this mordern day and age, where smartphones are pretty much computers, there would be something as close to a one-click-converter as possible. Again, the original idea was that with Java you are supposed to write one source code for all devices.

How To Choose The Right Platform For Mobile App Development

Making a successful mobile application is difficult. One of the first choices you need to make is which mobile operating system to go for. To be successful, you want your app to fit the operating system like a glove.

In this article, we discuss the current mobile platform market and which platform is best for app development. First, we’ll talk about iOS and Android.

json rpc – cpuminer 64bit-ARM Mobile device: Getting Error:”HTTP request failed: Empty reply from server” “json_rpc_call failed, retry after 10 seconds”

So basically I was what I tried here is that I installed Kali Linux on my Android phone using UserLand. My device is 64-bit ARM (aarch64) Machine so I installed CPU MINER which support Arm64, and I followed the instruction given by them. My pool (pool I am using to mine) also support Stratum Protocol which is not going to be an issue.
Using same pool address and same wallet address is working on different miner on different architecture device but not here.
Kindly someone help me out 🙂

mobile application – Single or multiple form field(s)

Consider an application where a user can enter his appointments for the day and share that with a colleague/secretary/etc.

So when the user clicks a plus/add button, a modal shows up with a simple form with a couple of fields and a button. In the form the user can enter information about an appointment.

For designing this form, I am trying to decide between

  • A. whether to make this a multi field form, so they have to specify 1) who the meeting is with 2) what time it is 3) where it will be held, 4) topic of the meeting 5) comments, and maybe another 1-2 fields.
  • B. just make it a very simple 1-2 field form. The user can just type out whatever they want in a single field and an optional comments field and touch the button.

In the first approach, it is all very structured. This prompts the user to break down the information into specific fields. This works well for appointments where everything is decided in advance.

In many cases however the actual information may not be as clear. For instance, I am thinking of having a meeting with either X or Y (from team Z) either after lunch or before leaving the office, and the place isn’t decided – either I drop by their desk or they come by my desk and maybe we go to the coffee machine or snack bar.

Putting all this ^ vagueness into a form with fixed fields can be cumbersome and places a cognitive load on the user. So is it maybe better to make the form very simplistic and let the users decide how they want to fill in the information?

So it is like the unit of activity can be considered to be either the individual appointments themselves, or more like a todo list/guide for the user.

What do the experienced designers think? How should I decide which approach might be better?

user research – Mobile Application for selling Handmade Jewellery

I have been trying to create a mobile application that sells Indian handmade jewels made by Indian village people. The end users are Europeans and Americans, who look at these jewels as rare and exotic.

I have kind of done the application but the missing point is that the application looks like another Ecommerce application. I need to give the application an Indian feel so please can you help me with some ideas on how to go about this?

Thank you in advance

theming – Making Drupal views table mobile friendly?

I decided to make our tables responsive but can’t figure out how to add column titles inside the TD rows.

I need to add “data-th=’ColumnTitleHere'” to the TD per row but not sure how to make this dynamic. This is supposed to show the column title.

In core/themes/classy/templates/views/views-view-table.html.twig it shows this:

{%
  set classes = (
    'views-table',
    'views-view-table',
    'cols-' ~ header|length,
    responsive ? 'responsive-enabled',
    sticky ? 'sticky-enabled',
  )
%}
<table{{ attributes.addClass(classes) }}>
  {% if caption_needed %}
    <caption>
    {% if caption %}
      {{ caption }}
    {% else %}
      {{ title }}
    {% endif %}
    {% if (summary_element is not empty) %}
      {{ summary_element }}
    {% endif %}
    </caption>
  {% endif %}
  {% if header %}
    <thead>
      <tr>
        {% for key, column in header %}
          {% if column.default_classes %}
            {%
              set column_classes = (
                'views-field',
                'views-field-' ~ fields(key),
              )
            %}
          {% endif %}
          <th{{ column.attributes.addClass(column_classes).setAttribute('scope', 'col') }}>
            {%- if column.wrapper_element -%}
              <{{ column.wrapper_element }}>
                {%- if column.url -%}
                  <a href="{{ column.url }}" title="{{ column.title }}" rel="nofollow">{{ column.content }}{{ column.sort_indicator }}</a>
                {%- else -%}
                  {{ column.content }}{{ column.sort_indicator }}
                {%- endif -%}
              </{{ column.wrapper_element }}>
            {%- else -%}
              {%- if column.url -%}
                <a href="{{ column.url }}" title="{{ column.title }}" rel="nofollow">{{ column.content }}{{ column.sort_indicator }}</a>
              {%- else -%}
                {{- column.content }}{{ column.sort_indicator }}
              {%- endif -%}
            {%- endif -%}
          </th>
        {% endfor %}
      </tr>
    </thead>
  {% endif %}
  <tbody>
    {% for row in rows %}
      <tr{{ row.attributes }}>
        {% for key, column in row.columns %}
          {% if column.default_classes %}
            {%
              set column_classes = (
                'views-field'
              )
            %}
            {% for field in column.fields %}
              {% set column_classes = column_classes|merge(('views-field-' ~ field)) %}
            {% endfor %}
          {% endif %}
          <td{{ column.attributes.addClass(column_classes) }}>
            {%- if column.wrapper_element -%}
              <{{ column.wrapper_element }}>
              {% for content in column.content %}
                {{ content.separator }}{{ content.field_output }}
              {% endfor %}
              </{{ column.wrapper_element }}>
            {%- else -%}
              {% for content in column.content %}
                {{- content.separator }}{{ content.field_output -}}
              {% endfor %}
            {%- endif %}
          </td>
        {% endfor %}
      </tr>
    {% endfor %}
  </tbody>
</table>

How can I add something like this?:

<td data-th="{{ thTitlehere }}" {{ column.attributes.addClass(column_classes) }}>

This should display the header column titles per row in order to make the views table mobile friendly. How can I add this into the twig?

Any help is much appreciated.
