compiling

Post by Gpjma »

Hi all. been awhile since using Smart Basic and very happy to be back.
Only one quetion.
I want to use my app on a device that does not have smart basic installed. Can I create an APK or some such to make the app portable?
Not looking to post on the app store so dont really want to get back into xcode
Thanks for your collective assistance :geek:

There is only one way to run native application on iOS - to install is from App Store.
So you either need to install smart BASIC and run your program from there or to use Xcode to create native application from your BASIC program.

There is also a class of applications which can be run without installation - web applications. But smart BASIC is not a web application.

Thank you very much for your reply.
Looks like i need to get back to learning in xcode. I moved away from iPad coding quite a while ago so going that way will prove a little daunting. Still I appreciate your help.
If there is any help available for doing this I would be grateful. Many thanks. :)

Smart BASIC does not require to program Xcode to create standalone application from your BASIC program. So you don't need to know Objective C or Swift for that. But of course general understanding of Xcode will be useful.
