Is there any possibility to maintain one application for both iPhone & Android mobile devices???

Hi,

First I will explain the scenario which we are currently on,

There was a requirement for developing Design Studio Dashboards for Apple & Android Devices. I have developed one for iPhone & one for Android Mobile devices (irrespective of their brands). I am able to visualize these dashboards on respective devices.

Now, I will come to the point that, Why I have developed a separate application for Android Devices???

I tried to use the same application for iPhone in Android devices & vice versa, but it is not properly fitting into the screen.

Question 1: Is there any possibility that one application developed can be used both in iPhone & Android mobile devices

Question 2: Is there any possibility that one application developed can be used both in iPad & Android Tablets

What we are planning is to maintain 3 different applications in the server:

  1. one for Desktop
  2. one for Tablets
  3. one for Mobile devices

Can anybody help me in this.....

Regards,

Arun Krishnan G

    Hello Arun,

    sounds like you want to be able to have different type of layouts based on possible screen resolution and device type (desktop vs mobile).

    Assuming you are on Design Studio 1.6 you could try the SAPUI5 m library discussed by Mustafa here: Design Studio Innovation Series: Topic 8 - Introducing the new M Mode for rendering Fiori-style apps in Design Studio 1.6

    Also assuming you are using the SAP Mobile BI applications (both iOS and Android) you may want to consider this: Making your dashboard Responsive - in a simple way

    Hi Arun,

    when you build a mobile app and use pixel-design (all components have width and height set to concrete pixel values) the app will run on all mobile devices, but will not resize.

    in standard...

    you can build a mobile app and set some components to width "auto" - then those will fill in the rest of the space in different devices. of course the same for height, the last row of components should be set on "auto" to assure they will be resized.

    in scn community...

    you can find some components like Design Studio SDK: Client Information Component or Design Studio SDK: Flow Layouter Component (for responsive layouting) which will help you to re-layout on size changes. those are available for free in the community package.

    See SCN Design Studio SDK Development Community

    Why aren't you using auto width/height for your application framework? That way it will resize to the edges of the screen of any device. I don't see why the split would be iOS vs Android, as there are different iPhone sizes and different Android device sizes.
