CREATE STAND ALONE APPS WITH techBASIC AND techBASIC APP BUILDER
◆ Write your apps in techBASIC on your iPad or iPhone.
◆ Use techBASIC App Builder and Xcode on a Mac to compile it for distribution.
◆ Sell your app on the App Store.
SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT WITH techBASIC
◆ Send and receive data from Bluetooth LE devices (only on hardware that supports Bluetooth LE)--control the Internet of Things, right from your iPhone or iPad
◆ Collect data from outside sensors using HiJack
◆ Access to the built-in accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope
◆ Get the current GPS location and heading
◆ Supports TCP/IP, HTTP and FTP for accessing information via WiFi connections
◆ Create apps with all of the standard iOS controls
° Use buttons, lists, sliders, pickers, etc.
° Take pictures with the camera
° Display web sites and documents
° Show maps
◆ Step and trace debugger
° Set breakpoints with a tap
° See current variables, both local and global
° See everything in a variable, even large matrices
◆ Array & matrix commands like matrix inversion, determinants, matrix arithmetic & more
◆ BASIC is easy to learn and use
◆ BASIC ranks in the top 5 most popular programming languages in most surveys
◆ Numeric integration for calculus
◆ Fit curves to data with polynomial and linear regression
◆ Solve simultaneous equations with matrix operations like LU decomposition
◆ Special functions for statistics
◆ Create a plot with only a few lines of code
◆ Pan and zoom plots with swipes and pinches
◆ Rotate 3D plots along an arbitrary axis
◆ Supports 2D or 3D Cartesian axis
◆ Polar, spherical and cylindrical axis
◆ Create error bars in 2 or 3 dimensions
◆ Add custom callouts
◆ The power-user’s graphing calculator--see how in our web tutorial

◆ Use the magnetometer as a metal detector
◆ Collect data from a stunt kite flight
° Fixes a problem under iOS 8 that causes a crash when a new program is created.
Many features such as graphics and data saving is attractive for casual user in engineering and scientific fields. Although techBasic is impressive because of its support of HiJack, not only input but also output capability is desired for my purpose. Softmodem can be easy way for bi-directional communication for iOS with various external devices such as arduino. So I wish techBasic supports Softmodem.
