Iphone and android with RoR 3.x

Hi all

Any advice in how to build applications for smartphones with RoR ?

RoR is for building web app, for smartphones app you should learn java i
think. But any web app build with RoR will work on a smartphone using
the internet browser.

Yes, Android is Java, but iOS is absolutely NOT Java (thank God implied
there).

Pepe,

If you’re truly interested in developing native iOS apps then here’s the
place to start:

If instead you’re interested in optimizing your web apps built in Rails
for iOS specifically then start here:

I you like ruby and RoR mechanics you can take a look at Rhodes. There
you can use Ruby and MVC architecture just like you do in RoR to achieve
multiplatform mobile support.

Look into using Sencha Touch and Phonegap…

MonoTouch for iPhone applications
