Rapid Android GUI Development with NDK Performance

Nov 14, 2011 8:30:20 AM

Coming soon to Storyboard will be support for Android. This means users can create an application in Storyboard Designer and immediately export an Android APK that can be installed on their favorite Android device for verification and testing. This will provide our users with a quick and easy method to verify and share designs on a device before the real hardware is available. Also in the future can provide a powerful development environment for Android app developers that require NDK performance without having to write OpenGL ES code.

Here you can see a few early examples of Storyboard running on the the Android platform (Sorry for weak camera work). The first 2 applications are benchmark applications we ported from the GUIMark tests by Craftyminds. You can see from results on most Android tablets with HTML5 that Storyboard will provide a true performance advantage by leveraging the OpenGL ES acceleration. Still a couple of issues to iron out, as you can see, but wanted to give you a preview of the performance we are getting and we haven't done any tuning yet.

Stay tuned and we'll continue to provide updates. If you are interested in being part of the Beta when it's ready please drop us an email.
