AppFurnace makes Android Development easy, with a Preview tool that helps you create fluid layouts on a number of devices.
What do I need to do to get my apps ready for Android?
You don’t need to do much – all AppFurnace apps can be run on Android or iPhone.
One issue you may run into is that Android phones come in a variety of different screen sizes. Luckily, AppFurnace has an easy way of marking up your widgets to make them lay out correctly on differently-sized screens. You can then use the Preview tool to try out your apps on different screen sizes to check it always looks perfect.
