There were a lot of learnings in building CrossTweet for Android. Here are a few tips I’d like to share with you.
When Adobe were preaching about seamless deployment across devices, they weren’t telling porky pies. Presenting CrossTweet for Android:
Part of the motivation behind building CrossTweet was the upcoming release of Adobe AIR for Android. A key goal was to provide seamless deployment across web and mobile by employing interaction techniques ubiquitous to mouse and touchscreen input. Which is why if you’ve seen CrossTweet on the web already, you may have noticed that the prev/next navigation had been inspired by the “drag to reload” functionality of twitter and other apps on the iPhone.
Point your phone’s QR code reader at the lovely pattern below, and give the app a test drive.
