I work full time at a big software company, when I'm not doing that I'm developing games. I keep a development blog at www.byte56.com and you can follow me on twitter.

I've created a course with Lynda.com to teach advanced scripting with the Unity 3D engine, check it out!

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the technology supported by various phone OSes, not game development.

The answer is yes, such things exist, but recommending one is outside the scope of this site.

comment Stuck at a crossroads need some guidance
Hey Joshua, welcome to the site. It's great you have a passion for game development! Unfortunately this isn't the place for these types of open ended, opinion based or discussion oriented questions. This is a great site for specific questions that have correct answers. For your problem I'd check out somewhere more discussion oriented, check out the bottom of this page for ideas on where to ask.

comment Having an issue with generating chunks in a voxel engine
Yeah, this really sounds like one of those "I have a problem somewhere hand wave, any ideas on how to fix it?". This leads to a back and forth discussion about how you're doing things now, what kind of debugging you've done, and plenty of other back and forth discussion. I think this isn't the site for this question. If you check out reddit.com/r/gamedev or gamedev.net, those sites are more discussion oriented and a better fit for these types of problems. You can also try our chat.

comment Having an issue with generating chunks in a voxel engine
As I said, your problem appears to be with correct usage of multithreading. If you really think the problem is in 'transferring chunk data' (which it's not clear what that means), then you should be describing how you're doing that now and where you think the problem is.

If you're not sure how to use multithreading, this isn't the place for those questions. Multithreading is not specific to game development and you should seek answers on stackoverflow.com. You likely have timing issues as these are a big issue with multithreading.

comment Why does this code update my object's position so fast?
These kind of "What's wrong with my code" questions are actually not a very good fit for the site. I answered your other question because it was a very simple question with a small amount of code. I suggest you learn to use the debugger and how to use logging to debug.

Please narrow the scope by telling us exactly how you're doing things now, what you think is wrong and how you'd like it to work. Remember this isn't a discussion oriented forum, so we shouldn't need back and forth conversation to solve your problem. The question as it is now requires discussion to work with you to create a solution.

comment How to rotate a sprite from sprite sheet (sequence of rotating frames) using keyboard in Java
It's not really clear what you're asking. It sounds like a programming logic question, which is off topic here since it's not specific to game development. If you don't understand your homework, you need to ask your professor for further help, this is what you're paying them for. If I'm wrong about what you're asking, please clarify the question by removing all the unnecessary code and commentary.
