Processing is already an amazing prototyping tool, but having a pocket-sized version of it is even more useful. I can write down any code idea that I have while travelling, and most of the desktop features are here, and if they're not, you can usually replicate them with minor tweaking. In addition to that, through the use of libraries such as Ketai, accessing Android features has never been more straightforward. Overall a great port of the desktop version, the performance is here, and it's probably the most useful tool for anyone who wants to make Android apps FROM their Android device. Looking forward to future updates. Keep up the good work, thank you Calsign Labs !
Used to run great, loved making random sketches for friends and family but now it won't let me press the install button when running a sketch for the first time. Really weird thing is it used to let me install the sketch but I had to wait a couple of seconds before hitting the install button. I've seen many reviews get responses from you guys so I'm hoping I can help you guys figure out this bug. I know it's Christmas so I hope the developers have a great Christmas! Edit: Excellent! Got a reply explaining exactly what the problem was and how to fix it. Top notch stuff, great job guys!
The new update indeed looks great but it makes the Android apps more bulky. I created an app which had about 4 MB of size using the previous version of APDE. Now, the same app consumes 10 MB of space using the newer version of APDE. Also, even after the app (the one made using newer version) crashes, it doesn't show any dialog box regarding the app crash rather a blank screen.
Happy to see this app over here, but there is a big problem! I downloaded the ketai library and it did not install properly for some reason. I can't see the lib in the lib manager but when i try to install it again it says it's already installed. I can see the ketai lib examples but if i try to compile the code it gives an error saying library is not installed. Tried reinstalling processing, still says lib is already installed even though it's not working.
It is a great program, I find it extremely useful. My only opinion of this is that APDE is not very customisable. If I were to modify the program, I would add more customisations like text colour editor. Another thing, if you are just tweaking numbers then changing a 7 to an 8 then having to recompile (which takes anywhere between 30 seconds and 2 minutes alone) is kind of a pain, please add tweak mode!!!
This is a great app for making graphics, and also allows you to make games (to an extent). One thing I wish it did have, or was more clear, was allowing you to make the sketch into a live background.
