Tablets are hot and the iPad is the hottest one on the market. According to Forbes, the iPad accounted for 81% of tablet web traffic in the US and Canada during one week in January, and LinkedIn announced it was giving iPad minis to all of its 3,500 employees. With all the attention on iPads and its powerful uses for business, now is the time to put iPads to work at your next trade show exhibit to attract more potential customers. Here's how.
Build the iPad into your exhibit.
Trade show exhibit manufacturers have seen the trend and created special stands just for the iPad. Of course, the iPad is entirely portable. But if you want to run a presentation on a loop on an iPad, a stand is very handy. You can select and customize the stand to fit your current exhibit.
Create presentations just for the iPad.
As with any technology, you need to get acquainted with the iPad 's capabilities before you are standing in front a crowd. Just like a laptop, it can connect to a projection screen. But if you plan to project the presentation from your iPad, make sure you test the technology first. MacWorld advises that you review Apple's best practices for creating a presentation on a Mac for use on an iPad. You can use either Apple's Keynote program or PowerPoint to create the presentation, but MacWorld author Joe Kissell recommends that you use Keynote to avoid losing any formatting in the import to the iPad.
Make a personal presentation.
With a great sales presentation on your iPad, you can enhance your selling efforts on the trade show floor by demonstrating your products or services one on one. Make sure the presentation is interactive and geared to the audience at that show, and set up a way to capture prospects' email addresses. In fact, you can leave the brochures and products back at the office, if you put all your product information on an iPad. One medical device manufacturer that used 3-D product demonstrations on the iPad estimated that they saved $ 500,000 on annual costs for shipping products to trade shows. In addition, their customer surveys showed that prospects better understood their products and viewed them as an innovative company.
Keep it really mobile.
Although wi-fi is available on most trade show floors, it is best not to rely getting good mobile coverage inside the exhibit hall. To be really mobile, load everything you need on the iPad so you are ready to go without connecting to the internet.
Forrester Research expects tablets to become our "primary computing device" and predicts that 375 million tablets will be sold worldwide in 2016. That means that more of your customers will be adopting iPad technology and expecting your company to do the same.
Incorporating iPads into your trade show exhibit now can be expected to pay off in attracting more prospects and keeping your customers engaged well beyond the next show.

If your beloved iPhone 6 screen has suffered any type of physical damage and its screen has been shattered beyond recognition then you should waste no time in replacing it. But there are certain things that should be kept in mind while doing that.
If you have already purchased ‘Apple Care’ then the DIY option is not for you. Making any move for self-replacement of the screen will void the terms of agreement and you will not be able to avail the benefits of ‘Apple Care.’ However, it does not matter if your iPhone 6 is still under warranty or not because the warranty does not cover any type of physical or water damage.
Considering such factors will help you decide whether you should proceed or not. Make sure that you have purchased an original Apple iPhone 6 screen and replacement tools for the job. Some simple DIY steps are given here to guide you towards the screen replacement of iPhone 6.
• Start the process by removing the bottom screws using a pentalobe screwdriver. Removing these screws loosens the screen.
• To remove the shattered screen, you can use an iSlack device that is a suction cup designed for the purpose. However, the screen should be removed halfway with the iSlack and the rest should be removed only after disconnecting the various cables and connectors.
• Remove the PCB connector plate and the connector cables. The process continues with the removal of earpiece, camera, proximity sensor, light sensor, and microphone flex assembly.
• While removing such assemblies and connectors, you should be careful as most of them are fixed with adhesive and applying too much strength can damage the components.
• Focus on removing the home button assembly and the home button itself. The button is fixed with an adhesive to the flex assembly which is fitted into the screen and you have to gently remove it to avoid any type of damage.
• After carefully removing all those parts, you will find the LCD backplate which is adjoined with 7 Phillip screws.
When you have removed the old LCD backplate, you can install the new screen and place all the components carefully in the exact order they were removed. It will be better if you note down the whole process in a sequence so that when you are re-installing all the components you can refer to the notes and avoid any mistakes.
For help or guidance, you can also watch a couple of videos online to get a better idea about what to do when you are replacing the iPhone screen parts. It is a fairly easy process but you will have to be careful throughout the whole process. Doing it in one uninterrupted session is advisable.

It’s the era of the apps. Every stream of life is flowing in the app wave. There is an app for almost everything we can think of. App stores like Apple are evidently showing the boundless potential that right apps have – both regarding adoption, as well as revenue generation.
While most leading app stores will have policy/guidance terms and pointers to help developers navigate this extraordinary pool of opportunities, most developers miss one very vital building block in an app’s journey. No matter how intuitive, UI-easy, need-oriented and agile you conjure your app to be, it will stop just an inch short of reaching its desired segment if you miss iOS localisation.
Yes, iOS developers can release apps across any or many of the 150 countries there with a single click but what about making sure that these countries peel off the product well and are not stuck unzipping the language sleeve? What use is a great product if it lies unnoticed inside the carton? Most of the countries you are releasing the app towards may not have native English speakers, and here, your app would be pointless irrespective of how sturdy, fast and visually appealing it is.
If you indeed want the app to be user-friendly across the full spectrum of a store, first things first, you need to internationalise it adequately. That means your app should be designed with a reasonable level of international compatibility so that areas like date/time/number formats; text input; time zone differences; user interface, output processing, etc. are amenable for use in user’s native language, no matter what that is. The code should be approached with this angle throughout the development phase and not as an afterthought.
Once the code is shaped well for international tweaking, then you should leverage this ability for effective localisation as per a specific user base. That means taking help from translation companies to convert the app’s user interface and core parts into a language that applies to a given user or culture.
It is advisable to undertake the app’s testing for various settings and situations with the use of translation experts, tools and pseudo-localization. Keep in mind that this process is much more than merely exporting some text and giving the app just a shallow-repackaging for a new language. This process should be well under the hood and deeply handled. It can also be done before the app is fully ready so that additional iOS localisation and specific audio-imaging elements can be aligned as the app proceeds.
Expert translation companies can make it possible to do parallel localisation work and import that intermittently into the project and then test the app throughout every language and UI scenario.
If a developer or a software maker can spend a little, proactive attention in this direction and employ the right translation resources, the app can not only garner enviable app-store ranks but will also be an instant favourite among its intended audience.
After all, user experience was and still remains the ultimate test for any app and software’s actual stability and adoption. It is an acid test, and when apps fail to take cognizance of the language aspect in the UI picture, they will, sooner or later, fail this gate eventually. Think about it: why should a great app slip to catch the user’s eye just because it is in a different language – language used to be a big barrier earlier, but not anymore. What’s the use of being in the app economy and the 21st century, if we let language be a speed-bump even now?

Smartphones and iPhone both are the novel introduction for communication, besides having a galore of features. Smartphone has replaced the carrying of a cell phone as well as a PDA separately as it is all-in-one gadget. It is up to the user to employ it as an organizer, a cell phone, an email device, or anything above it.
Any application or software announces its presence in the Smartphone and assures of performing everything that a phone fails to do, and hence are hotter, while iPhone has captured the attention like never before. This is a hot device and the gadget features internet browsing, listening to music and communication. This is considered to be exceptional as it offers multimedia experiences of higher levels.
Smartphones vs. iPhone comparison is interesting, however, the Smartphone platform is truly very strong, but cannot overcome iPhone in a short span of period as the latter has emerged as a block buster. Smartphones have to wait patiently and handle strategically without fancying the commercial techniques alone, as iPhones also seem to be proving.
Verizon Droid has made commercials ensuring night shots, a real keyboard, interchangeable batteries, customization and open development platform. With the specifications mentioned, Droid runs Android 2.0 and is the fastest Smartphone, however is a little thicker than iPhone 3G. This Smartphone offers a high-resolution 3.75-inch display screen, turn-by-turn Google Maps navigation (at least in beta test), a slide-out keyboard, access to Amazon.com`s MP3 store and a 5 megapixel camera. On the other hand the android platform does not feature the many program applications like the iPhone.
Meanwhile the iPhone 3GS has a 3.5-inch touch screen, access to Apple`s popular iTunes music, video and application store, a digital compass and a 3 megapixel digital camera. It runs on a fast 600MHz CPU with 256MB RAM offering fast services.
Droid is a Smartphone offering the deserved internet experience, while iPhone had to add the AJAX as well as Flash technology to reach to the levels of advancement of its competitors. Droid is incapable of providing as many applications as iPhone, but recently, more applications as well as games on the Android platform are gaining utmost popularity. Similarly, although the iPhone comes with an array of pre-installed software, there is not much indication about a feature called VOIP – Voice over IP. Meanwhile, installing software on iPhone is impossible like that ones you can do it on Smartphone, and this is one of the best pros for smartphones.
The iPhone browser is well ahead than Smartphone and facilitates loading websites such that it offers full view and allows zooming quickly. The iPhone handling is also superior to to any Smartphone available in the market. iPhone features simple strokes using two fingers to zoom in or out that it really makes a significant difference in surfing the web on the phone, besides iPhone also detects if the phone is being handled horizontally and flips the display in accordance to that offering comfort of viewing to the user. Smartphone has a lesser resolution screen than the iPhone and a memory card is for 2GB, while iPhone has 4GB and above.
There is no doubt that iPhone has a cool touch, but is expensive and Smartphones are also the choice of many for its software facilities and is comparatively less expensive.

Crossover is a software that lets you run Windows-based applications on a Linux computer or MAC.
CodeWeavers, the company that developed CrossOver, has been working on an Android version of the tool that would enable you to run Windows programs on Android devices.
Last month, Google made its Play store available to the at least three Chromebooks, allowing their users to run apps developed for Android phones on their machines.
This means the users of compatible Chromebooks will also be able to run Windows programs by installing CrossOver for Android app. However, for now, this software won't run every single Windows app or even all those Windows apps that you can run on Linux or MAC platforms using Crossover.
While CodeWeavers's Android app is yet to be released, the Minnesota-based company this week posted a video on their official blog showing the Windows game Limbo and Steam game client running on an Acer Chromebook.
The company said the CrossOver for Android supports DirectX 9 graphics and detects the inputs from keyboard and mouse.
It is worth mentioning that the software works only with the devices featuring x86 processors. Since a large number of Android smartphones and tablets boast the chips are manufactured by ARM, most of its users will be not able to run Crossover.
But, most of the Chromebooks have Intel processors, and they would be the main beneficiaries of Crossover once Google widens its Android app support to these machines and once this software is officially launched.
Currently, the Android app support is available in Acer Chromebook R11, Google Chromebook Pixel and Asus Chromebook Flip but Google has said that it will roll out to the feature to other Chromebooks in the market as well by the end of this year.
Since Chromebooks tend to be cheaper as compared to Windows, Apple's MAC and OS X laptops, their sales have increased over the last few years.
However, due to its lack of support for Microsoft Office, Photoshop and many other programs, critics call Chrome OS "just a browser" which "not works without an Internet connection".
But the arrival of Google Play Store will make Chrome OS a powerful and versatile operating system.
And, support for even some Windows apps would be a handy addition and will is expected to boost further the sales of Chromebooks.
If you want to be notified about when Crossover for Android will be officially released, you can send an email to CodeWeavers at email@example.com , the company said.

People have been dependent on their cell phones for different purposes, and they get all the required solutions of their problems through the applications of mobile phones. It is also primarily used for paying bills, accumulating different information about various factors which are dispersed on the internet, get in touch with friends anywhere around the world, solving every glitch, playing new and modern games, others.
Presently, the market is booming with the new invention of Smartphones which is capable of offering every facility that is equivalent to a desktop or laptop. It is to be noted that it requires the assistance of a special software program to give the proper efficacy and ensure the appropriate use of its hardware. Everyone is accustomed to the factor that there are two kinds of operating systems available which work as an operating system for these modern, innovative mobile phone, i.e., the Android and iOS.
We all are informed about the fact that iOS is the exclusive OS which runs only on Apple’s supporting mobile platform. It has transformed the world with its new, innovative, inbuilt, and user-friendly operations and loads of useful apps. Presently, it has been found that they are renowned for providing every app which satisfies each and every necessity of people. Approximately more than 800 million devices are functioning on iOS, and in the near future, as estimated, it will cover up nearly 1 billion devices which will be working on iOS.
There has been a huge decrease in the sales of computer, and it is all due to the proficiency offered by the hand-held devices. The research says that millions of apps are downloaded and in them lies the presence of games as well, that is liked and preferred by youths and kids. They are also well aware of the same. It is a proof which shows peoples dependency on Apple’s operating system and the efficiency provided by its apps which are being frequently used.
It is the leading cause which assures you that anyone can go ahead and shape an iOS app and can earn millions of dollars. If you have required knowledge of programming and have a brief understanding of it, then you can focus on learning programming of Apple iOS. In this way, you will not only be capable of developing an app but also will be able to handle Apple app development.
However, if you focus on the Android application then it should be the priority as the present market of smartphone users throughout the world are filled with Android dealers. There is no significant difference in these two operating systems. However, both of them have made human life quite easier, and every work which requires the assistance of a machine to get accomplished can be done with such defined systems.

Apple products are truly iconic, commanding a loyal customer base unheard of in electronic devices. There’s something about the whole product that keeps the bond going strong – the look, the features etc. The applications featured on an iPad have been atypical from the regular android app. It is only in the recent past due to soaring popularity that apps with similar functions have begun to feature, in both platforms. Learn how outsourced application development services benefit business strategy.
Innovation is a key to success in technology
Harnessing technology innovatively is the key to success. An application that is creative, useful and stands-out from the crowd needs to be adapted and developed into a working one. Transforming an idea into a working function requires technical skill and expertise. Outsourcing to agencies helps to take the idea from a board to an iPad in a manner that’s justifiable.
Swift development gives it a first off the block advantage
An idea for an application could be a solution to a problem or an issue. Or it could be a creative way of getting something done easier. Since it features the use of a set technology, it is highly likely that similar application may also be in the process of development. Therefore it is important that the idea is turned around as fast as possible, to make it the first off the block.
Creative visuals in UI helps attract users
Getting users to download and use an application calls for the creation of world class visualization. A dull and drab presentation will sometimes put off an interested customer. Not only should an application have great functionality, but it should also present the functions better. Outsourcing to competent agencies helps to create a stunning visualization in the UI.
Testing and Development
The application needs to be tested prior to release. Agencies possess the expertise and the experience to test the functioning of the application and look for potential bugs. They conduct sufficient tests to determine if the application would crash under any given circumstances. It is essential that testing is extensive and thorough to prevent crashes.
Overall, outsourcing of development of application for the iPad has numerous benefits. This has to be viewed in the context of the quality requirements of Apple. The quality of applications intended to feature on the iTunes store need to be of a certain basic minimum quality. To ensure that the quality criteria is met, it is essential that experts are relied upon.

The cold and the damp weather of winter not only affects our skin, but even the electronic gadgets. The most affected thing due to the changing weather is the smartphones and iPhone. The internal components and the screen of the phones become more fragile than usual during the cold weather, thus, any bang or drop can seriously damage your device. Not only this, the smartphones even stops working beyond a certain temperature.
Check out some of the tips that can help you protect your devices during the sluggish weather.
1. The first and the foremost remedy is to keep the handsets warm and away from the chills of the winter. Keep them protected in your handbags or in the pocket of your jeans. Keeping them in hands will expose them to the moisture of that prevails in the air. So, keeping them covered when you are on the streets is the best idea.
2. Protecting it with a phone cover. The Apple Cat Phone cases available are cute and protective. This is a perfect option for all the girls you likes to use trendy things. The feline prints on the phone cases are so cute that they can effortlessly add pizzas to your phone. Moreover, they protect the moisture from entering your phone, thus, keeping it dry during the wet season. The phone accessories are important to give a colorful update to your phone, but during winter it serves a functional role.
3. In case the phone is freezing cold and the battery is dead, then, avoid restarting it until it is warm. This will shorten the life of your battery and may be harmful to the entire software. Let it warm and then switch it on.
4. The phone cases cover the entire body of the smartphone, but not the jack of the earphone. Hence, there is a possibility of moisture entering the jack. In order to prevent this damage, you can use plug-ins. The Cat Phone Pluggies features playful felines and can be plugged into the jacks. This will even keep the jack of the phone covered. The Cat Phone Accessories are not just for the accessorizing your handsets, it even acts a waterproof protection for the device during the severe winter weather.
5. Avoid touching the screen of the phone with wet hands. Even the tempered glass can protect the device to a certain extent. Dry your hands first or wear woolen gloves before you use your phone. The touch screen is the most affected ones due to dampness. The best way to protect them is the use of touch stick instead of your hands.
You have nothing to fear in the frigid temperature of this time of the year if you take a bit of precaution. You particularly need to be more careful if you are out in the cold for a longer period of time.

You’ve seen the amazing statistics on Apple Apps and how ordinary folks are achieving success with writing apps for the iPhone and iPad. Well, the first thing I can tell you is that you’re right! The Apple App store is taking the world by storm (exceeding more than 2 billion downloads). And my suspicion is that this is all just the beginning.
The problem is, how do you go about writing an app? In fact, what do you need before you being app development? Well, that’s where this article will help. I’ll provide you with 10 things you need before you start writing your Apple app. Even if you’ve never developed content for a mobile device, or if you’re new to software development, you should know that learning iPhone development can be a fun and rewarding experience.
1. Get a Mac OS X Computer
To develop applications for the iPhone OS, you need a Mac OS X computer running the Xcode tools. Xcode is Apple’s suite of development tools that provide support for project management, code editing, building executables and debugging.
I know many of you might be PC users are some of you might baulk at the idea of using a Mac. Well, my advice is – give the Mac a chance. I’ve many friends who were once die-hard PC users who have now switched over to the Mac. Why? Because they want to write apps! And once they made the switch – they found the Mac to be so much easier to use and a really enjoyable experience.
2. Download the SDK
Apple distributes an iPhone app software development kit (SDK). You’ll definitely need to download this and read it from front to back. Don’t worry, it’s more complex then it seems. Give it time and you’ll soon be on the app development bandwagon.
3. Learn Objective-C
Mac programs are written in Objective-C Apple also introduced a special abstraction API for Objective-C called Cocoa Touch for iPhone (and iPod Touch) development.
Objective-C will come quite naturally to those who have programmed in C, C++ or Java before. Now, if you’re new to programming, Objective-C might be a challenge.
Try to grab a basic book on programming to before you get into the nuts and bolts of Objective-C. One of the better books for learning Objective-C is the Programming in Objective-C by Stephen G. Kochan. It does not assume you have any previous knowledge in this area.
4. Become An Approved Apple Developer
Becoming an approved developer for Apple apps takes some time. Many people do not know this. I hear that there is a six month waiting list to be an approved developer. Some have speculated that the time to wait may decrease now that interest in the iPhone and iPad has hit the roof worldwide.
Becoming an accepted developer only gets you into the App Store. Of course, that’s the only way to distribute your applications, so it’s a necessary part of the process.
5. Research Your App
As in all things related to software development, the goal of your app will be to provide a solution to a set of end users.
Make sure you research your app. There’s no point just jumping in to write apps which don’t meet any user needs. A year ago you could easily write an app that did some nonsense (e.g. make a fart noise) and expect people to download it. That’s not going to happen anymore. If you want an app that is popular, you need to make it useful.
Usually, in mobile device development, your audience is a person on the go. People who use mobile applications want to have quick interactions. They absolutely don’t want to write a Word document on the go. They want to do useful things by just pressing a button or two.
The other tip I have is to think of the Apple iPhone as a pocket computer. For example, successful applications like Pandora that have typically struggled in a desktop setting now flourish as a pocket computer solution. When planning your application think about what is unique to the iPhone that can be utilized in your app.
6. Write For Portability
What do I mean by portability? Well, depending on which frameworks (major components of the iPhone SDK) are used in your application, your app may not work on every iPhone device. For example, an application that makes use of the camera, compass or microphone will work on an iPhone but not an iPod touch.
Now, it’s OK to write an app that’s limited to iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS -but my feel is that you will be missing out on a potential chunk of target users.
7. Always Document Your Ideas
Before you commit any code to your new project, take some time to document your end-user experience. This doesn’t need to be a lengthy requirements document. It could be as simple as writing down some notes on paper or sketching some drawings.
There is actually a great sketching product out there called UI Stencils that allows you to mock up a screen design on paper. I love it and highly recommend it for app development.
8. Give A Great User Experience
When you start looking at Apple documentation, one recurring theme you will see is reference to a document called the Human Interface Guidelines (HIG). Essentially this is the master document for how your iPhone application should look and behave. Make sure you familiarize yourself with it.
It’s also important to download and try out other apps made by other leading developers. To ensure a great user experience in your app, ask yourself why those applications are the leaders and what elements they used to create a great experience. Also check out the ideas of usability expert Jakob Nielsen.
9. Data Management
Oh, before I forget, one of most complex things you will need to consider is data management. If your app is a basic utility (e.g. a calculator) you shouldn’t have to worry about storing data. If you build an app that connects to an Internet-based service, you’ll connect to these online resources through web services. Your third option will be to store user data on the device using the Core Data Framework.
10. Manage Memory and Battery Life
Those who are a bit more technical will understand what I mean by memory and battery life management. Note that there is no garbage collection for iPhone. Garbage collection is a programming term which means that if your program has a “memory leak”, it could cause the iPhone to eventually crash without warning.
Also, take note that certain iPhone functions will use more battery life than others. For example, applications that stream data from the Internet or make extensive use of the Core Location Framework (e.g. GPS) will drain battery life more quickly.
I certainly hope this article has given you a heads up on the things you need before writing an Apple app.
There are quite a number of things you need – a Mac OS X computer, Objective-C know-how, UI design experience, amongst other things. But if you’re serious about going about your app development journey, you should not be discouraged.
Learn a little each day, and I guarantee that you’ll become quite the expert developer in no time!
Next time, I’ll write up some articles on how to actually program an app in Xcode tools and Objective-C. Until then, have fun learning to developing those apps!

At present, Android dominates the worldwide smartphone operating system market. Also, the statistics posted on various websites indicate that Google Play Store currently offers more apps and games than Apple Play Store. The trends depict that many developers prefer developing apps and games for the Android platform.
The developers have option to write apps and games for Android in C, C++ or Java. But Java is the official language for developing games and apps for Google’s mobile operating system. Google further recommends developers to write new Android applications and games in Java. Also, many developers find it easier to write mobile games in Java than other programming languages.
Why Many Developers prefer writing Mobile Games in Java?
Java is a Popular Programming Language
Java is currently one of the most widely used general-purpose programming languages. The developers have option to use Java for developing desktop GUI applications, web applications and mobile apps. So many beginners prefer learning a programming language that enables them to build a wide variety of applications. Also, Java enables developers to write, compile and debug code without putting any extra effort. That is why; enterprises can build mobile apps easily by deploying skilled Java programmers.
Java is a Multithreaded Programming Language
Developers always prefer writing mobile games in a programming language that supports multithreading fully. The multithreading support is essential for performing several tasks concurrently within a single program. So the users can easily play the mobile games written in Java while performing other tasks like checking emails and browsing internet. The multitasking support makes it easier for programmers to build games that allow users to switch from one task to another seamlessly.
Facilitates Cross-Platform Game Development
Unlike other programming languages, Java enables developers to port applications from one platform to another seamlessly. They programmers can write the mobile game in Java once, and run it on multiple devices and platforms without recompiling the code and using extra implementation dependencies. So it becomes easier for developers to build the mobile game initially for the Android operating system, and reuse the same code to extend the game to other mobile platforms.
Helps Developers to Build Flawless Games
Like mobile apps, mobile games also need to work flawlessly and deliver richer user experience to become popular and profitable. So the developers need to ensure that the code written by them is flawless. Also, the must identify and repair the bugs or flaws in the code immediately. Unlike other programming languages, Java enables programmers to identify and eliminate coding errors early and quickly. The programmers can further take advantage of the Java compiler to detect errors occurring at the time of code execution.
Features Included in Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME)
While writing mobile games in Java, the developers can take advantage of the robust features provided by Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME). In addition to being an open platform, J2ME further includes Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) API. The MIDP API helps developers to create apps and games for constrained devices. The latest version of MIDP API comes with several new features to make mobile game development simpler and faster.
The programmers can further use Java runtime environment and libraries to make the game run seamlessly on various mobile devices. At the same time, the rich user interface features of J2ME make it easier for developers to make the games more visually appealing. Also, the platform can queue network operations and catch efficiently. Hence, the developers can use J2ME to enable users to play the games even when there is no internet connectivity.
Loads of Game Development Tools
The developers can further avail a number of tools to build 2D and 3D mobile games in Java rapidly. For instance, the programmers can use advanced 3D game engines like jMonkeyEngine to create stunning 3D worlds. These tools further boost the performance of Java games significantly, and enables developers to port the games to different platforms.
Some of these tools even allow programmers to write robust games in Java using widely used integrated development environments (IDEs) like NetBeans and Eclipse. These game development tools contribute immensely towards making Java mobile game development popular.
The Java developers also have option to use several mobile game development tools to build robust games in Java within a shorter amount of time. The suite of 2D and 3D tools provided by these frameworks make it easier for programmers to create games that deliver richer user experience across many devices powered by the Android operating system.
