Apportable vs J2ObjC: What are the differences?
Apportable: Objective-C for Android. Apportable lets you cross-compile your iOS app and re-use the same code across platforms; J2ObjC: Java to iOS Objective-C translation tool and runtime used by Google Inbox to share 70% of its code across Android, iOS, and Web. J2ObjC is an open-source command-line tool from Google that translates Java code to Objective-C for the iOS (iPhone/iPad) platform. This tool enables Java code to be part of an iOS application's build, as no editing of the generated files is necessary. The goal is to write an app's non-UI code (such as data access, or application logic) in Java, which is then shared by web apps (using GWT), Android apps, and iOS apps.
Apportable and J2ObjC belong to "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" category of the tech stack.
J2ObjC is an open source tool with 5.47K GitHub stars and 771 GitHub forks. Here's a link to J2ObjC's open source repository on GitHub.

What tools integrate with Apportable?
This is one of the most amazing open source projects out there. Tom and Kieth do an amazing job working with the developer community and quickly responding to questions and concerns. I was blown away by how solid the ported code was. What a life-saver and a ridiculously awesome tool.
We use J2Objc and GWT to provide a shared library of cross-platform code that is used on all our client platforms (Android, iOS and the web) and even in the backend.
