(Note: you also need Paul Laughton's BASIC! on your Android device (available on Google Play), and the QuickAPK program on your computer.)
BASIC! is a simple yet powerful dialect of Dartmouth Basic that allows you to write and run programs directly on your Android device.
BASIC! programs are text files (*.bas) that need the BASIC! interpreter in order to run.
Once you have finished writing your program, you might want to compile it into a stand-alone Android app (APK) and share it with your family and friends, or even sell it on Google Play.
QuickAPK allows you to do that in a couple of clicks.
After download, run the BASIC! QuickAPK (WiFi) app on your Android device and hit the Home key to send it to the background. The app will intercept incoming commands from your computer and dialog with the QuickAPK program. No additional configuration is needed: as long as computer and phone or tablet are on the same LAN they autodetect each other.
On your PC, simply install the QuickAPK program and choose the WiFi mode to retrieve your program and resources from your device.
You will need in addition to this app:
- BASIC! (on your Android) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rfo.basic
- Quick APK (on your computer) http://mougino.free.fr/quickapk.html
NB: in order to develop and test your BASIC! program more easily, you might be interested in my other software RFO-BASIC! Launcher which uses the same technology, download it at http://mougino.free.fr/basiclauncher.html
BASIC! QuickAPK (WiFi) was written in BASIC! for Android and compiled with RFO-BASIC! QuickAPK. Its source code is under GNU GPL license and available at http://mougino.free.fr
