I wouldn't say duplicate because the Android interface ecosystem has changed a lot in the last months, but I think that the question needs a little more detail to get useful answers. Using long-press for what purpose? –  PaRaP Apr 24 '13 at 19:02
    
It is to display a menu when you long press to edit or delete a row –  Alberto Reche Sabater Apr 24 '13 at 19:10
    
iOS users are not used to contextuals menus using long press, is not a usual pattern in iPhone or iPad. In Android it was common to show menus using long press before ICS, but now the long press is stated in the style guide to be used only for selection purposes. I would recommend using an "Edit" button in iOS. In Android you can use the long press to select the item, but the option would be in an action bar and not in a contextual menu. –  PaRaP Apr 24 '13 at 21:15
