Thread: Delphi Prism for iPad

    Delphi Prism for iPad

    I have a few questions regarding development for iPad in Delphi Prism.
    - Do I need Novell Monotouch as well?
    - Do I have access to the same features / performance as I would using the native C based development tool?
    - Would it be feasible to convert a Delphi Windows game to iPad?
    - Is there sufficient documentation available to start developing for the iPad?

    What other platforms can I make applications for with Prism? Android?

    Not All of them

    No. Except if your game is programmed in Pure OpenGL so with a few modifications...

    If you would like more information about developing for the iPad using Delphi Prism I'd check out Dr. Bob's site for more information. He had a workshop not long ago all about this. More information is available here http://www.pascalgamedevelopment.com...hop-by-Dr.-Bob and here http://www.pascalgamedevelopment.com...elphi-Prism-XE.

    Also when RemObjects gets their Cooper compiler rolling you'll be able to use the exact same Object Pascal dialect for your .NET stuff on the Java-based Android platform too.
