Ooooh! A C++ API. Being hoping to dust off those skills on something fun. So many options to play with.

That's the spirit... welcome to the forum.
Seriously, though, at least try to help move the forum/community forward rather than making threats. Most people who's first posts are like that usually don't stick around. Who knows, maybe you are just venting.

i don't quite follow you. sure, iOS supports applications written in C++ / Objective-C, but it's a very closed platform. it's not like you can really go doing any exploring on your own just because you are writing in a "native" language.
what's missing in Android's SDK that is would otherwise be available with C++? is your primary concern speed?
