Porting an AIR Application from iPhone to Android

I recently decided to port my AIR Twitter client called TweetCards from iPhone to Android. The process primarily consisted of:

  • Resizing assets to compensate for the larger and higher resolution screen.
  • Changing the orientation of the application from portrait to landscape (to take advantage of the higher resolution screen).
  • Adding keyboard controls to take advantage of the D-pad on the Droid.

The entire process probably took about six hours tops. Below is a video of the end result.
