Getting started writing a phone app
Posted on 2013-06-24
I would like to write a phone app that draws information from a mysql database. It seems like I have two options:
App Builder Websites:
Sites like Mobincube or TheAppBuilder seems to offer a quick way to build web apps. What are the drawbacks of these products?
Write the code myself:
I've been writing php for 10+ years. Can I write the app in php and intergrate the code into the development tools for iOS, Droid, Windows, etc? To clarify... I do understand that I'll need to get ahold of a Mac and download their development tools. I'm assuming Droid and Windows both have similar development tools. Can I mostly use the same php code for the basis of the programs and just copy paste?
