So far it is recognizable as Basic. I loved reading the reviews from the former basic programmers, such as me for a hobby, for years. The most important thing is the input output and file saving, for personal databases and text manipulation. It is so hard to get this with android programming (using cookies to save files? what an afterthought).
I have but 15 minutes ago put this app on my phone. OMG..... I am 69 and used to write programs on a BBC and commodore, Sinclair and Atari and here I am with my phone doing it again 37 years later. The BIG difference is that this is blisteringly fast where as in those days it was bogged down slow! Wow.....
I started programming in 1969 (yes I know!) taught it shortly thereafter and became serious in the 80s using the ZX81 followed by the Spectrum followed by the PCW. This brings back the joy of all 3 computers and I can trap touch screen! It isn't a dialect I'm familiar with but it's easy to learn and fun to play with. Some of my programs have actually been useful so will be uploaded when I iron out the kinks and make them as foolproof as I can. I highly recommend this.
A throwback to the days of my misspent youth writing BASIC programs all day. Thanks for making BASIC for Android.
Feels great to use this when teaching younger generations about the language without opening your PC. Absolutely brilliant
So fun, given me hours of entertainment as I program along. I wish there was some syntax highlighting but oh well. Thanks for this awesome program.
It's been a long time coming, but here's v1.91, the latest version of BASIC!. We have fixed a few bugs and added more than a dozen new features, from Wakelock flags to new ZIP commands.
