Domino To Go will support Android in the upcoming version 1.2
Domino To Go, our unique solution to create native Lotus Domino Apps for iPhone, iPad and Android, will have official support for Android devices in the upcoming version 1.2.
The Domino To Go core, that means all the methods to synchronize and work with Lotus Domino data on a mobile iPhone, iPad, Android device already worked fine on Android, there were only very few minor issues.
Since Android and iOS devices have different UI concepts here and there, we had some work making the ready-to-run application template and the demo Apps look good on Android. But we took the opportunity and added some features to Domino To Go to level the UI differences between Android and iOS.
For example, on iOS you can place buttons in the title bar, which is not possible on Android (yet). On Android, you need to place the buttons yourself, which makes it difficult to have the very same code for iOS and Android. To make this easier, we added methods to Domino To Go to add navigation/action buttons to the top of the window, and Domino To Go automatically places them right, depending which device you're using.
Fonts and colors are another example. Normally you need to think about which font size you want on Android and which font size you want on iOS. In Domino To Go, there are some predefined font constants which you can simply use, and Domino To Go takes care about choosing the right font size for the current device.
So, Domino To Go version 1.2 adds some good features to make cross platform App development much easier!
