I think it would be a terrible idea for Pierre to add yet another project... unless he want's to give up on xnviewMP :?

-XnView MP - is still in development
-XnConvert - is as good as complete in features anyway except for some bug fixes
-XnView standard - development ultimately will end with this one soon (but will still be available) because of it's replacement 'XnView MP'

A new mobile/smartphone version should be developed but with less development priority than XnView MP.

Yes I have heard this before from various Android developer's. Even getting that first simple version out there as Dreamer put it would take some time with just one developer only. Debugging on Android is also a timely process.

xnview wrote:We must keep same design as XnViewMP/XnConvert logo, i think...

Yes I agree and I happen to like the new Xn logo (sorry Dreamer).

As I've said previously other Android developers (even of currently successful apps) have noted to me hurdles in developing for Android. One such developer was Maxim's interview for his successful PowerAMP application.

Tell us, Pierre, what do you find as the main difficulties (so far) in developing for Android?

Android 4.0 aka "Ice Cream Sandwich" has just been released today on October 19h 2011.

It has lots of new features as well as being aimed at unifying tablet sized UI with smartphone sized UI for it's developers

Yes, but Ice Cream Sandwich is a MAJOR release so this SDK would be more important to start from in a developer's perspective.

Federico Carnales (aka "Fede") who is the developer of the Android app, LauncherPro, told his users that he would not release a version of LauncherPro for Android's 'Honeycomb' expressing that he wanted to wait until the release of 'Ice Cream Sandwich' SDK in order to properly develop-support LauncherPro on larger UI displays (e.e. tablets). Smart and obvious move I would say.

Many Android apps targeted for 'Gingerbread' (including LauncherPro too) still run perfectly fine on 'Honeycomb' with some having minor usability and optimization disadvantages. So "another SDK" Pierre shouldn't be a big issue :mrgreen: ...Should it? Unless newer API's are conflicting

My ideas, I think the first version should be available ASAP - this is important, so it should have only very basic features, then more, but not too advanced edit options, I agree with René...

Hello,
ASAP, +1 I agree,
Should be ( if it's possible for Pierre) , during a couple of months, the first priority (...marketing & strategic aspects)
Xnview is terribly missing into the "android Market", and I think than the development of an "android app." is a good solution especially for promoting the XnView Label & icon, among young people (and some others)
PS: ...Nice icons Budz45 especially the first one

I think an XnView viewer for Android should just be like QuickPic and use native API for JPG,BMP,PNG,GIF,WEBP support as Android supports these files natively just fine...However XnView could use it's own Lib for APNG support :)

A clean GUI (like QuickPic's) with lots of settings.
