My main point was that intrusive answer dialogs aren't appropriate for any 
OS now, and no mobile platform uses them. There are no native substitutes.

The equivalent for Android is in the Android object library I made which is 
now available for anyone who attended my LC Global session. If you want to 
make your own, it's basically just a group with appropriately shadowed and 
colored controls, which communicate with the calling handler via dialogData.
