What technology Todoist Android app is built with?
I wonder how did you build your Android app? It looks really cool and also it is quite similar to several other Android apps, for example Simplepost. Sidebar navigation menu looks almost the same. So I was thinking maybe you used a technology or framework that allows you to bootstrap some things, with built-in templates. I have checked PhoneGap and Appgyver and did not find anything similar.
If it is not a secret, please, share your knowledge. If there is a framework or technology that allows to built apps like Todoist or Simplenote with templates, I'd like know more about it.
Thanks in advance,

We did not follow any template for our app though Android has these standards that they would like developers to follow which we are trying to do. This might be why you see similarities in different apps.
Most Android apps are written in Java. There are quite a few environments that you can code for Android though, on Linux, Windows and OSX. Things like Eclipse are used quite often by Android developers.
I hope this answers your question.

Thank your for your answer.
We've explored HTML5 in the past, older versions of our app were indeed HTML5 versions with a "browser-wrapper" around them and the results were very bad, beyond compare of a true native app so we prefer to stick with a truly native application for best performance and great user experience.
