Years ago I looked into Android and WP.. At that time, Android used Java running in a VM and it didn't even offer JIT compiling. I haven't looked into WP for a long while so I have no clue what they offer, but it's probably C# and their LIM (or whatever they called it) as a part of .net system. Q. I understand the ObjC/iOS is a native code compiler and this offers a higher level of performance / security. Does Android / WinPhone offer this or is it just Apple? I'm not asking about cross platform tools, just looking for the native stuff.
