Hi Webmasters, the situation seems kinda complex, will appreciate any help, ideally if you have faced the same scenario somehow.
I created a few mobile apps for Android in the past using Mosync (a tool that can create Android, iOS, Windows phone and Wince apps but never succeeded in the market, it's abandoned, dead since 2013). Such apps work perfectly on Android devices directly installing the APK, no problem there. My Mosync installation is quite old but functional and able to create the APKs without problem, it can also create Xcode Projects to deliver iOS apps.
I'm considering releasing some apps via Android Market (Google Play) and Apple iOS Appstore. I know they test your app and can reject it due to several reasons, my concern is having the apps rejected due to technical reasons being Mosync an old framework. Is that concern realistic? I mean I can still create apps using Visual Basic 5 if I wanted and they would work perfectly. Besides I doubt on some apps from the appstore being so old having to be re-packaged, right?
There are other options (Appcelerator, Xamarin, PhoneGap, Cordova, Ionic, etc). The only one I like and I'm using/learning is Corona SDK. Anyway I'm not considering rewriting such apps as an option, I don't have time or interest in that. The market changes quickly and many frameworks have died and some are new. Am I realistic on thinking the only thing that matters is security, user experience and being functional (the app)?
My logic tells me the market changes way fast but developers can't afford changing their tools too often, so, many are staying with their old frameworks.
One thing that I like about Mosync is the compatibility on their APK, it works on many devices, opposed to complex building using new technologies telling you "it will run on ABC processors, but not on DEFG". I understand there are options, but it's not as easy as saying "switch to Phonegap, done!", like I had the time and one week was enough to rebuild the same app using whatever technology around.
Will appreciate your opinion. I have other apps I would like to release, and can do that really quickly using Mosync.
