Today I was just in a hurry to just go through what’s interesting out there in Technological world. I came across MonoDROID, from Mono&Novell.
MonoDroid is a development stack for using C# and core .NET APIs to develop Android-based applications using .NET.
dotNET on ANDROID cool right?.
There is also MonoTouch which a C# & .NET Api for developing iPhone applications. This was revolutionary. But it’s commercial product. Similar way MonoDROID also going to be commercial product in future. But as far I concern about comparing to feature it provides, price doesn’t matter. They spend lots of money on R & D, Innovation etc. So this is just a nominal fee to recover the cost of development and it makes sense.
These additions to Mono in increasing the wide application development base using .NET and I am glad such things should happen. .NET is an interesting platform to work with and every one who understand .NET will start loving it, because of it’s Core features.
