What's New in Version 3.2.2
• Better support for Unicode characters in string operations.
• Your apps can vibrate the iPhone.
• Polygon operations are available when drawing on images.
• Fixes incompatibilities with iOS 8.
• Numerous bug fixes. See our support page for details.
Whether you are a pro developer, scientist, tinkerer, part time hacker, or just want to learn how to develop for portable devices, techBASIC is exactly what you need. I couldn't be happier with the IDE and the amazing results I have been able to achieve. Just buy it already!
BASIC fun for All!
This is why you buy an iPad. The friendly folks at Byte Works have done something spectacular. They have brought the thrill of writing code back to even aging first-generation coders--the guys and gals who went from slide rules to punch cards and BASIC. This is a killer app because they took the time to do it right! techBASIC is not perfect, but it is the best-in-class for iOS and I've tried the others. The documentation is good. Their support team is enthusiastic and responds. I hadn't written BASIC code in 30 years ... it's like riding a bicycle and they make it so easy! For younger generations, learning BASIC is a fun entry into programming. BUY IT. Worth every penny.
