Haven't looked close at CBs but if it's x86 then an x86 build performance will be 8-10 times faster than an app running in an arm emulator. At least that's what I measured using an x86 Android tablet.

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 HyperActive Software | http://www.hyperactivesw.com On November 26, 2020 7:32:50 AM Richmond via use-livecode <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > 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 so LiveCode builds for Android > wouldn't run on them. > > Sorry to be damp squish. > > On 26.11.20 7:52, prothero--- via use-livecode wrote: >> Folks: >> My son is a 5’th grade teacher.
