- Compile and build install files on your phone (APK file)
- Publish and update to Google Play Store
- Fully Compatible with Android Studio
Sketchware is a Scratch-like block programming based integrated development environment (IDE) for developing mobile Android apps.
It's okay if you do not know anything about developing Android apps. Sketchware is an IDE that uses block language like Scratch, an innovative programming language invented by MIT that transforms the complex language of text-based coding into visual, drag-and-drop building blocks.
Scratch is such a simple language, even little children can learn to develop. Sketchware translates Scratch into Java and XML source codes, so there is no limit on what you can develop.
Sketchware provides documentations you can follow to become an expert at Scratch block programming and Android app development. Each example contains programming concepts you can understand by completing the project.
Visually design and develop apps, then simply run your app with a single click to build and install directly on your Android device. The projects are fully compatible with Android Studio, an IDE used on a PC, so you can export your finished project and continue working on Android Studio, or your favorite editor.
