The first question was what data structures are used in Java. Then it's about whiteboard coding. I was asked to write a class to describe properties of a car. Some kind of sorting was asked, I didn't get it. Then several stuff about Android: like how to save user's settings; how to use the LocationManager... They expect whiteboard coding, I was only able to tell which API I usually call.

Be prepared for whiteboard coding.

Programming exercise was good- you had 1:15 hr in XCode to write a simple iOS application with data persistence, implement a shake motion gesture, localize it into french and spanish, and ensure the UI resized correctly. Then you had to write the test cases for your app. All told if you knew what you were doing you should have the basics done in under an hour. From there you can spend the rest of your time making the UI pretty.
