Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Hi everyone,

In the stores it says that Android/IOs support for personal & business version is coming soon.... how soon? whe are they expected?

How will they work? Will C2 add new features for mobile devices (adaptation to different screen sizes, densities,...)??

Thank you in advance.

Thank you for your prompt reply!!

I did not know anything about appmobi (I was going to use phonegap).
Is appmobi better supported by C2 than phonegap??

In any case, I have already posted my doubt about supporting multiple screens: How do I...?
Is there any "rule" so I can design just once and it works in every device???

Thank you in advance.

Phonegap tends to be very slow - you should use directCanvas or CocoonJS because they are much faster.

@BrianOD I had somewhat the same question about mobile screen sizes here. I was pointed to a tutorial which helped me: http://www.scirra.com/tutorials/73/supporting-multiple-screen-sizes

@juantar I have read that tutorial several times, I almost know it by heart, but I must be silly, noob or narrow minded because I do not get it yet... as I postedhere a friend and I have ideas for two games, and we still do not know how big to design it....

Thank you so much anyway!!!
