About this app

Easily write apps for your Phone, Tablet or Chromebook using industry standard JavaScript and Python. Edit your code using our browser based WiFi editor, or just edit code directly on your device using the built-in code editor. Now you can write apps anywhere!

Using this app is a great way to learn JavaScript and Python, which are now the most popular computer languages on the planet! It contains lots of clear and simple examples and comes with 'active' documentation and a large and friendly community who are ready to help.

DroidScript makes coding 10x faster and easier than using the standard Android API because we have done all the hard work for you and wrapped it up in our simplified API. This accelerates your development process and protects you from all the issues caused by differences in hardware and Android versions.

DroidScript uses Android's built-in Chrome V8 engine which is constantly updated and improved by Google and keeps up-to-date with modern internet standards.

For larger projects, we recommend using the built-in browser based IDE (editor). It connects via WiFi to your device allowing wire free coding from Windows, Linux or Mac PCs and it makes coding a breeze!

If you want to get serious about coding and release your apps on to Google Play then you can even build APKs and AABs directly on your device in a matter seconds!

You can choose to make Native apps, HTML apps, NodeJS apps or make Hybrid Apps using the built-in WebView control. Whichever way you choose, you can make use use of all the power of the modern Chrome browser engine in every type of app.

It's not just for beginners! Many professionals are using DroidScript all over the world and we can provide an 'enhanced support service' to help you build your commercial application. (Please contact support@droidscript.org for more info)

I love your app but it's buggy to the point it's almost not useable. also somehow my last post got deleted. so I'll go over the buggs I have found so far. first I lost all of one project then twice now I have lost a days worth of script. I was having problems with demos not working but that fixed it's self. I can no long change any text rather erasing or adding. once I close the app it's back to what I stared with. I have more then enough room.

Please ask for help on the forum.... sounds like you might have run out of internal sdcard space. Others are not reporting this type of issue

this is a pretty good app, but I am disappointed that I can only edit one file at a time, and worst yet, I have to exit the app and reopen it in order to be able to edit a different file. In addition, I am not sure about others, but this makes me feel like you are intimidating me to purchasing a monthly subscription, and that's not a way for your customers to trust you. I think you to rethink this in a different way. For example, no ads premium plan, and multi-file editing a one time in-app fee.

You should not have to exit the app in order to edit a different file... just press the back button to go back to the main screen.

The ide itself is an easy 5 stars no question however my problem is yet another app using subscription based model. I want to be able to pay once even if it cost more. If a pay once is ever added I will for sure buy premium and increase my rating to 5 stars. I wouldn't even care if it was 15 to 20 dollars(or more) I just want to be able to pay once. Edit: they apparently have a lifetime plan by contacting them so that is nice. However I have came across acode which works for me but this is nice
