Anywhere Software B4A is a simple and powerful application development tool for devices running the Android operating system. The Basic4Android language is very similar to the popular Visual Basic language. When developing applications, many different additional libraries are used. To execute the created programs, no additional runtime tools are required.
The Basic4Android development environment includes a powerful visual designer that supports a variety of screen sizes and orientations. To debug applications, connect an Android emulator or a real device. Connection is possible via USB or local network.
Developers are available a large number of additional libraries for working with SQL databases, GPS, serial port (Bluetooth), camera, internet, XML, animation, network, voice messages, voice recognition, tables, graphics and many others.
All versions of Android OS are supported, starting from 1.6
From the translator: Choosing a programming language, you need to know what level of tasks will be solved. In the case of complex professional applications, it is better to choose a language more complex and powerful. However, for the implementation of simple products, you can learn the Basic-like programming language yourself. You will spend a little time studying, and spend most of your time in the implementation of your project. You can conduct an experiment – create a program in C # and Basic4Android with the same functionality. In the second case, the developer will spend less time.
