Rick: Thanks. I’ve considered that. But my app is pretty complex. There is interactive maps plotting earthquakes, elevations, ages, etc, graphics capture and editing, writing, lots of complex actions that I think would require a major time investment to do on the web. It is actually something

Hi Bill, If you make your app a webpage instead by using a LiveCode Server, then everyone can just visit your website. It will run on all computers with web access, not just ChromeBooks. Good luck with whatever you decide to do! Rick > On Nov 26, 2020, at 12:52 AM, prothero--- via

Android apps run in an emulator on Chromebooks. I forgot to mention that the emulator is only 32-bit so you have to build ARM 7 apps for Chromebook. I haven't needed to build an x86 app, my tests have all run okay on three different models. -- Jacqueline Landman Gay | jac...@hyperactivesw.com

Thanks for the perspective, Jacque, Hmm, it could be venturing into a swamp for me, tho. Given the popularity of Chromebooks, it would be great if Livecode could be invested in support for them. In my own case, I need to be cautious about where I spend my effort. I’m a happily retired

Hi Mark - glad you got an explanation. I am still getting some anomalies in these notifications, and more importantly from my point of view I’m seeing problems with receiving sensor messages when the app goes into the background. Elanor thinks there is a bug there (tho so far unconfirmed -

Is a Chromebook app an Android app? Or, to put things another way . . . I thought I'd be clever and design something for kids at my school to use on their Android phones and tablets . . . Fantastic idea that foundered badly when I worked out that a lot of ANdroid tablets ran on INTEL chips
