Making "FotoCube" for the iphone and itouch

Hi-I have created "FotoCube" which may be viewed and played at: (if the 15 minute play trial expires simply close and restart your browser to play again).

I hired a Java SE programmer to write the code for the web application. I am interested in making "FotoCube" playable on both the iphone and itouch if possible, with fewer attributes if necessary.

Can Java ME be used to accomplish the above? I have received several replies to posts I have made which have referred me to Java ME to do this.

My Java programmer has told me this might be accomplished using the Macintosh computer and programming using certain softwares.

Do you think "FotoCube" can be made for the iphone and itouch units?
Please make any references to me that might be valid. I am also possibly looking for a programmer to work with in accomplishing this project.

Thank you,
Amir Alagic

I don't think that you can write your app in Java ME and then run it on iPhone... As far as I knwo iPhone doesn't support JME. I have heard that people managed to run Java on iPhone but...

Last I'd heard, there were people putting Java on the iPhone - including Sun - but Apple refused to bless the JVMs. Until/if Apple supports Java, Java iPhone apps aren't going to be commercially viable.

One reason why Android has more interest than it might otherwise have. Even though Android isn't stock J2ME, at least you're guaranteed basic Java functionality.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link:
