    What toolkits/frameworks do you use to develop applications?

    Do you use the SDK or something else?

    What are the benefits of each?

    I've moved this to our developer 101 forum so you can get the help you need. I think you will find parts of the answer in the sticky threads at the top of this forum.:)

    I'm using Eclipse and Android SDK. I'm writing my application in Java.
    Benefits are simple. Tons of sample code, forum answers, videos.

    I write my apps with HTML/CSS/Javascript. The benefit of doing it this way is that I can use PhoneGap to make iPhone apps and Android apps from the same code (with minor tweaking, like removing the Back buttons for the Android version).

    I use either iWebkit or Jquery as the GUI for the app, using a simple text editor for all the coding. My apps are not complicated, so this is just right for me. I have tons of development links on my site here if you want to go this path:

    Phonegap is great for simple applications and prototyping, but for more advanced, complex applications, there really is no substitute for the IDE/SDK combo.
