Does porting Android application to BB 10 causes performance issues?

Hi All,

 

I am very new to BlackBerry 10 development. Reading some of the documents I could understand that it is possible to port Android applications to BB 10. In fact it is the only way one can develop apps for BB 10 using JAVA language. 

 

I really wonder porting the apps will ever cause any performance issues in BB 10. My client is very particular about the performance of the application which we are developing. 

 

Can any of the experts here tell me whether there is a chance that the ported application be slow in BB 10?

 

Thank you in advance.

Awaiting your reply

 Hello,

 So far I hae ported one pretty big applicaiton from Android. There are some problems like keyboard poping up on every EditText which cna be fixed easily. Another problem is that notifications are different and I could not find a way to fix them. My applicaiton is bae on server-client communication and is working fine with small fixes.

So you did not feel much difference in the overall performance compared to Android. Right?

Re: Does porting Android application to BB 10 causes performance issues?

yes. that is correct. But as I said it is on server-client base app. As you can see above in forum I just posted a topic about slow ported applicaiton which is base on file cache and work with databases. And it is extremely lsow :smileysad: Dont know why...

Okay. If you find any solutions to improve its performance, kindly let me know. In my project also I have a requirement to cache the data in local database. So your fix (if you could find one) will be useful for me too. :smileyhappy:
