Lennie De Villiers from South Africa has built an NS Basic app into AppMobi. AppMobi takes your apps and turns them into packages suitable for submission to the App Store. If you try this, let us know how it goes for you. We will probably turn this into a full Tech Note. Here are his notes:
- Register for a free account on AppMobi.com, this free account allows you to test the application but if you want to deploy to the App Store then you need to pay the license fee.
- Download and install AppMobi XDK IDE, this requires Chrome and Java 6 run-time. The XDK is a full IDE that run within the web browser.
- Run the IDE and start a new project.
- Choose “Open project folder” menu option.
- It open all the project folders… Within this folder you will find “image” folder and the index.html file
- Replace these files with your files (see attached sample)
- Back at the IDE choose the Reload button. You will see that the interface will change to show the Twitter example.
- Go to appmobi.com on your mobile phone
- you might need to download the test program to your phone (SlimFat)
- Choose your application
- Choose “Test Local” or “Test Anywhere”
- Chose Launch
- SlimFat will open up and run with your NSBasic application.
- To deploy to the App Store you need to purchase a license.
More information on how the XDK IDE works etc can be found on the AppMobi web site.
