What Application Platform to use????

Hello Everyone!


I have been a bit confused as to which Application Platform to use.. I don't want to put in a ton of time into developing on a platform that I am just not suited for..

I am a new developer And here is the list of platforms that I can use..


  • Native CSS C++
  • HTML 5
  • Adobe AIR
  • Android
  • PlayBook
  • BlackBerry OS

As mentioned, I am a newbie and I would really appreciate as many developers to help me decide, which is the best to start off with that is most user friendly and yet a good way to go, especially for the future development for RIM.


I am trusting all you guys to give me fair advice, and Why your choice would be recommended.


I would soooooo appreciate your input as this is a very important decision for me to make.


Thank you for your help, I would highly appreciate it!


You are all AWESOME!!!!

Re: What Application Platform to use????

BlackBerry Cascades and BlackBerry WebWorks are the two core platforms for BlackBerry 10.  These two will give you the best option to develop an application that feels like a BlackBerry 10 application.


The choice really depends on what you application needs to do and which languages you are most comfortable with.
