Using Dreamweaver to create Android and iOS apps

I heard that Dreamweaver can be used to write one application and deploy on both platforms. Is this true?

I considered using Appcelerator for that purpose, but now am convinced it's too risky a platform (at trhe moment) due to memory problems whenrunning it on the iPhone. I need my apps to be rock solid and would rather write Objective-C and Java apps to get truly native apps, versus getting two apps that may both be unstable.

Has anyone had experience (good or bad) using Dreamweaver for this purpose? How limited would the app be? Is my source code secured from prying eyes? What compromise would I make using DW?

I may need access to GPS and Camera, so is this a problem?

What version do I need and what does it cost?

Thanks.

Technically you would not be creating native apps with Dreamweaver alone.  Dreamweaver can be combined with Phone Gap to produce native apps but the depth of functionality is not nearly the same as wha you get with truly developing the app in Xcode or Java.

You would need the latest version of DW (5.5) but if you need hardware access, then absolutely start with xcode and Java natively.

Ok, what if I forgo accessing the hardware? How good is DW at making apps for the iPhone? Do you know of any by name I could download from the App Store and take a look at?

Thanks. I got a look at one and do not like the appearance. Xcode it is!
