Android Talk on The Portable Podcast, Episode 93

Jul 12, 2011

On this week’s episode of The Portable Podcast, Android came up as a topic with both guests.

I spoke with Todd Hamilton, a developer on iOS gamepad simulator, Joypad, and he confirmed that Joypad could possibly come to Android in the future – and could be used to control iPad games that support Joypad controls. The irony could cause the universe to explode.

As well, I spoke with ZeptoLab’s Semyon Voinov, and he revealed that the Android version is not entirely the same as the iOS version; in fact, some levels have been changed to accommodate the different sizes and capabilities of Android screens; in particular, puzzles which requires multitouch now no longer need them.
