Hi,

I'd like to know if there's a way to convert automatically an Android application to an Objetive-C one.

Thank you

Hi Rogerio,

no, there's no automatic way. Android and iOS not just use different languages but fundamentally different frameworks and UI concepts. Automatic conversion is impossible.

@Carlos: You might want to check out Titanium (http://www.appcelerator.com/). SproutCore (http://sproutcore.com) is also a great option to build mobile apps using HTML5 and web technologies. That might not be the right way for all applications, but is definitely an option for some.

There is a third party tool availale that can provide cross platform compatibility. But most of them are using webkit for that. Eg titanium.
