Excerpt of article text...

In early August, Xojo 2023 Release 2 shipped. This version had two major features which I've mentioned before here: Android support and XAML Containers.

There are lots of other changes and bug fixes as well, so be sure to try it out!

Xojo Android Support

Xojo 2023 Release 2 has the first support for creating Android applications. As discussed at the last two XDCs (London and Nashville), the Xojo Android support is considered a Beta because there are so many parts that are all-new. This Beta label will remain until we feel things are stable enough to remove it.

Xojo for Android supports Android 8.0 or higher (for developers this is also referred to as API/SDK 26). According to Google, Android 8.0 supports over 90% of Android devices in use today.

Xojo for Android can create standalone apk (Android Package) and aab (Android App Bundles) apps. The aab bundles are used for submitting to the Google Play Store. The apk apps can be sideloaded directly onto a device, such as from your own web page, a feature that is not available with iOS.
