B4A BASIC for Android
« on: February 16, 2020, 11:28:00 PM »
I have seen mention in the past that some BCX programmers were also checking out B4A BASIC for Android.

B4A is now FREE!

I think it is a very well developed, updated and easy to use tool. Very active online community. I have been a licensed user for a couple of years.

I purchased the B4A package about 7 years ago for a work-related project.  I had gotten much of the UI completed and most of the business logic but I hit a roadblock with our company network security group when I tried to get them to open a port in the network DMZ.  Without that client/server access, I could not exchange the data that was needed to run the app.  That was frustrating, the project was shelved, and I retired 2 years later.

Despite that limited experience, I thought that "Basic For Android" was a solid product that fit with my development sensibilities.  I may tinker with it on my Samsung Tablet, just to see how it has matured since I last used it.

Thanks Robert, I too was a registered user a few years ago but dropped my registration. I downloaded it again and will tinker as I have time.
