Getting an iPhone app converted to Android

31 December 2011 - 10:36 AM

Hey all,
recently, I tried to get a simple one-screen puzzle game for iphone converted to android through elance.
The original game took me about two weeks including making the graphics.

On elance, the conversion took a month, and quality of the resulting app was still really terrible so I had to cut my losses and quit. I thought making a game look exactly like the iphone version would be straightforward, but apparently it is not. Problems included button/text sizing being totally off on most devices, frequent crashes, and the fact that you can see the screen being drawn one chunk at a time.

After this experience, I can't afford to spend any more money on converting the game without knowing that the android coder is up to the job. Has anyone had experience with a similar conversion that resulted in a high-quality app? Any recommendations for elance coders? If the first conversion worked out, we would want to convert several others....
