    Wonderful tool. Android's beauty and best advantage is the huge potential the comunity brings. And this app transforms every person interested in technology a potencial app programmer. Now we can say "Technology is not only for Techies"

    Keep up the good work!


    And thank you! ;)

    P.S: I would suggest some small changes in terms of design (even tho I just began using it...). The block editor shouln't be a plain desktop. I would add pages (as LibreOffice Calc, for example) and stuff like that.

    Happy to hear that you liked it!

    It certainly is more convenient to use than the full SDK.
