Hello guys,

I want to start developing mobile applications but I'm a littlte confused about all the posible options. What lenguage or framework would you recommend me to learn? what should be my first steps?Obviously I would like to learn the technology with more future in the market. I already have knowledge of J2SE. Any additional recommendations are welcome

Best regards

Well, we're a little bit biased here, but we like Java. At the moment, the 2 primary options in that area are Android and JME. Android is, of course, very hot these days, but JME has its uses, and if you want to target the still-popular Blackberry platform, it's J2ME-based.

Microsoft, of course. likes .Net (or at least did up until last week). Then there's Palm's WebOS. Nokian flooded the world with Symbian phones, which I think are C/C++. although now Nokia loves Microsoft. Then there's the one and only iPhone, which is programmed in Objective-C.

Although each platform has its own primary language, you can often find secondary languages being used as well. For example, Python on Android.
