- Fully Compatible with Android Studio

Sketchware is a block programming based integrated development environment (IDE) for developing mobile Android apps. 

It's okay if you do not know anything about developing Android apps. Sketchware is an IDE that uses block language that transforms the complex language of text-based coding into visual, drag-and-drop building blocks. 

Sketchware provides documentations you can follow to become an expert at block programming and Android app development. Each example contains programming concepts you can understand by completing the project.

Visually design and develop apps, then simply run your app with a single click to build and install directly on your Android device. The projects are fully compatible with Android Studio, an IDE used on a PC, so you can export your finished project and continue working on Android Studio, or your favorite editor.

Required Permissions:

- WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE / READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: This permission is required to save and run projects.

Reviews From google play store

This is a good idea and for personal use a good app. I made a few apps using this and when it came to export or publish them directly to the playstore i could not do it because it would not recognize my JSON file as a JSON file and exports the file in a format that my Android Studio can not recognize or open. so i have an app i can use on my phone and thats about it. Reached out to the developer with the issue twice and haven't received anything from them in 2 months. I have since then just started using AS and Unity to create my apps and games.

Thanks for this update. But we are still waiting for the API Version. Now I have add the one STAR. I make my first app using this incredible apk..It so amazing and simple to use. But I have one PROBLEM about the EDIT TEXT BLINKING BAR which supposed to move at right side when typing but it always at the left side. Please I believe you Guys Can make more impressive than this. keep doing the great work. Thanks.

I make my first app using sketchware and now, my app available in the Playstore. Thank for this AMAZING app. AWESOME. I hope, Sketchware team could update this App API LEVEL to 28 because no one can't upload their app to playstore. New playstore rule. Finally, an announcement from Sketchware Team. will be waiting for new updates soon.

Pretty good and can you tell Cayden Willouhby to clear the data before you go into the app because I had the same problem, but this app would not even open but I got it, so just tell him to clear all cache and all data in the settings of the app for me.

Changed AD Source * We are preparing to support API 28. It is very close to the result and will be updated soon. Thank you soo much I am waiting for this update sketchware. I don't know soon means how many months? Please make it fast ur app will be popular with this update...

I wish it would let me put no stars because the first time I got the app, it will me to a YouTube video then just stopped the app kept kicking me out. Total wast of time and space.

1 star until you update the app with the API level. Almost useless now if we cannot update any of ours apps on the play store. I've used Sketchware for 2.5 years and have been a subscriber for most of that, it would be a shame to just abandon this app now.

Good app, but in latest version may often get stuck on loading when i just completed add image from file manager

Why ads is only showing on tested device?, it doesn't show on other device

[ANNOUNCEMENT] If you want to support SKETCHWARE DEVELOPERS so that they can make amazing updated and be motivated, follow the way below: #1. Just keep watching ads from their Sketchware continuously at least 1 hour per day or (1hr/day). Frequently Asked Question: Q1. Why do we need to watch ads for them? Answer: Watching ads makes Sketchware Developers to earn. Q2. But there are subscribers that makes them earn, why watch annoying ads then? Answer: Yes there were subscription made by users, but those were not enough to fulfill their daily needs like cloth, foods, shelter, internet and many more. Furthermore, they have families to feed so cost of living is quite very high and costly. Q3. I am a regular subscriber, do I need to watch ad? Answer : Yes, whether you are a subscriber or not, watching ads could help developers a lot more for their daily needs. -Thats all-

Why the app not gonna support to lessthan 5 of android version? I created an ap with sketchware then test it to lower than 6 version of android in my second phone. It has a lot of errors even though I never use viewpager. Can you fixe it please, I use vivo y53.

This program has not been updated for at least 2 years BUT still I gave them 5 stars. It is a perfect way to start learning to create your own apps. Hopefully, they keep working on this program.

Allow GIF support for Background Resources and Images. Thanks!

It was so much better before! Now there is MORE ads! Also, I cannot run the "Aapt". I can't build the APK file of my app. Please fix this error. Thanks.

Soundpool not working, trying to upload sound from device storage but its not working

Please Add some Blocks For Fingerprint sensor ! And improve some designs !

l love to rate it millions of star.... This is wonderful app creater... Kindly add Phone Authentication block.

its good BUT its hard to make a app also I just use this to convert scratch games into an app

Can you please make the font style editable from the workplace, because it's inconvenient to change it from coding blocks and we first need to run the app to see what it look like.

Please add Admob Reward ad activity. Also add onAdClicked, onAdLeftApplication,event for Intastial Ad and Banner ad. Thank you

This is amazing! Great app for Apps and game developers . Im in love with this app But with new versions i can't share my projects with sketchware community

won't let me open the app at all, i'd love to see how this works but i can't. from what I have seen it's supposed to be pretty interesting, so I'll give it four stars instead of one.

Very good app for making your own android app on your android phone

Best app creator. Even better than the expensive ones!!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE UPDATE THE UI AND ADD NEW FEATURES Like a Video format, so we can add videos into our Apps and gif to!! Please add a lot of new features in version 4.0.0!!!

Please please please, somehow make the compiling time more shorter... please,,a request from all users!

Urgent update needed to solve API issue which prevents update of all apps created from this App.

Amazing app but you need to update the API level!

Let us edit the source code or add a block for adding packages and adding code in the xml file.

I love this app, it's a must have if you want to design great apps by yourself, the possibilities are just insanely infinite. beginner or not in programing, this app is made for you. Make all that you want, just think and test, it's easy, it's quick, it makes dreams comes true.

This is an easy way to start developing apps, or to work on them while you are on the go. The are some issues though. - Exporting for Android Studio results in files that won't load into Android Studio. It gives lots of errors when you try to build. - If I try and upload an APK it tells me the target API is 27 and Google Play now requires a min. of 28. So, it works fine if you just want to run your app yourself, but not if you want to upload it or develop it further in Android Studio.

Sir need update with sdk 28-29. Update soon Integrated Facebook ad .

Hello .... Sketchware needs a new update because The Sketchware app has API level 27 and requires API level 28 as a new update to the Google Play Store. This problem occurs when we publish apps on the Google Play Store, I will attach the required document to the message. Hope you can resolve this soon... Thank you. Sneh nu sarnamu developer's

I think it's a good game making app! But one problem is that there doesn't seem to be a test option. I've been having to run it every time I would test something. So can you please add a test feature!

Nonsence and senceless app, my abb not paying sfyer subscribing for admob to this nonsence app. It is usless dont download

Upload Error: Your app currently targets API level 27 and must target at least API level 28 to ensure it is built on the latest APIs optimized for security and performance. Change your app's target API level to at least 28. What should I do with this?

This app make your own app... you all rate readers i have the experience to make an app with block coding and many playes where app was made with block coding but in the last it takes some money but in the sketchware it was fully free yes, i know that it also take money for the pro user... so it best then any other app so i am impressed with this app...and do you know that it was fully based on mit app development.... ☆☆☆☆☆ Thanks

AMAZING! I had this app for 2 long years, and I went through a lot of updates. There is sooo much possibilities!!! It is kinda limited, and I wish sketchware can expand firebase authentication (so you can login with google, twitter, Facebook, etc.) and Firebase Storage a bit, so you can post videos. We need a video view especially. Thanks sketchware!!! 😂🤣😂🤣

Thank you for this great app .. It's really awesome and easy to use but I hope you add some lessons in the app that learn you how to use the commands , and add more features.... Thank you very much

Yes, this app really is functional and creative. Though it makes coding a lot more simpler for others, but some functions and such are still more flexible and accurate in actual hard coding.. In terms of the app itself, not the functions and others, I don't know if I am the one experiencing bugs like when I created new screen or view and put it in landscape mode, the interface for that screen doesn't turn landscape ( in "view" tab to see the outcome with its layout)..

its perfect and easy app but i will give 5 stars if sketshware give as a way to edit java and xml files bad things : cant add permisions cant add new library that my code need (for example import*) cant add external library (for example morphing buttons)

Everybody, stop telling it's boring, firstly this app is made for easier programming apps, if you don't like uninstall it, also stop saying that you lost your project, just backup it to the cloud store or to other folder than .Sketchware. If you don't like app, just uninstall it. If you don't know what to do, go and search on YouTube some Sketchware tutorial for beginners, if not that means you lazy, so go ahead and find some YouTube video tutorials. Best application I ever had in my whole life!

I made so many apps using this! I love it but when I am going to install the apk, it says unknown developer and it doesn't install. So I use the other phone so zi can install it as Install anyway. Can you add an option when you are creatig an app that is App Developer.

Awesome app!!! 😍 This app has made me to believe that my phone can do wonders! Am sure I love this app better than others, I believe with time I'd be able to create apps that will meet needs like this one. Thanks to the developers! 🤝 Do us more pride by adding new features... most especially, the backup feature.

App is failing compile when "AppCompat and Design" is enabled!😡😡😡 That means I can't use drawer, firebase, etc. Fix this problem! Also, there are too many bugs! It must be fixed😤 Why the API Level is 27 in this app when API Level 29 is running on!

Extremely easy to use, even for someone who watched Netflix, listened to music and browsed Tumblr all through four of my five high school computer classes. Only suggestion I have is to maybe add a quick tutorial upon startup so you can find everything a bit quicker, but other than that it's a pretty good app.

Android now asks to upload level 28 app. But sketchware still generates apk files of level 27. Please update sketchware to support level 28. It's very cool. They should add more widgets to the app. For ex: 1. Adding PDF files to the to the app as we add images. 2. Images should be zoomable which is a basic thing.

Really good,. But on a small screen the experience is not that great ...but overall its a powerful tool

Make a support for Chrome OS and an option to build Chrome OS Apps(android apps that supports Chrome OS)

Love the app, I worked a lot and build some apps, and paid to Google play store just to find out that the API is out of date and needs to be at least 28, to be able to upload any app, please sketchware make it happen...

I am a premium user and I am having a serious issue. I need to publish my app as soon as possible, and August 1st, Google made it mandatory to have a MINIMUM target API of 28. Sketchware is signing apps with 27. NO ONE CAN PUBLISH ANYTHING TO GOOGLE PLAY at this time.

This app is the best app creator I have ever seen: It allows you to create apps from scratch using a super-easy visual programming language called block language. I absolutely love experimenting what I can make with the app, and you don't need to even know how to code!

This app is awesome. I am app developer. and i have a good suggestion for this app. Include more widgets like = search bar. This will help us a lot more. I will edit this review later. if i got a new idea

I recommend it for those who want to make something that's help for their customizing their phone of their own...and share their works even in playstore..amazing... and i tried it and i like it... this is handy so i can make apps even while i'm in the road or commuting.....

Very nice app and UI is so beautiful. It required only basic concept, developer, please add a additional option to edit source code of application. i assure you that it will prove very well for user.

I found it very useful, easy to develop application. I recommend all new developers to use it.

Great concept and overall functionality but the ads between every screen are incredibly intrusive. It's such a good app that you could easily just ditch them and charge $2.99 for a premium version.

It's really helpfull to make own application's.But I still don't know how to make a video player with sketchware.😤

Hai Sketchware Team, So, my request is that....As similar to update in December 2018 (Apps created on Sketchware will now target SDK 26). In sameway, "Will Sketchware team is going to release any update regarding to "Target SDK 28" and "android app bundles" ? So that we can directly upload apk/app bundle files that are build in sketchware to playstore,. Instead of going to android studio to change/edit target api and android app bundles.

love this app! I'll give five stars when they update because I cant write apps for playstore now until sketchware adds the new SDK. Google changed their policies about target android versions. after they upgrade then 5 stars

Best of Android drag-and-drop IDE. Kudos to you guys. Please we still looking foward to Sketchware for web app version where htm etc comes on blocks. Thanks

I like this app but I don't can give five stars ! can you add features that we can add 3d objects . if not then we can say that you have to make a Sketchware for games

The problem is when I make the 'Next' and when I tap on it nothing! NOTHING! Hwo I make the second page...😠😠😠

Please add support for android 9.0 Pie 🥧! the current versions doesn't build the apps!! it always give [] error.. and when i check the log also shows nothing but a [] brackets.. all my projects waiting your update.. the app was working before on Android 8 oreo..

I haven't even tried this yet but I make really cool games on scratch and keep wishing I could upload them to play store. Just looked up scratch mobile and I found this. I am beyond excited to try this out!😍😘thank you so much!

This is absolutely beautiful, it's very easy and it's my kind of style. It is very intelligent and I give it all thumbs up.

It's a best application to create a normal app. It's really easy. Thank you! 🤩

I don't know about the "padding" thing but this isn't easy and its super complicated. 🙁😞. But it was cool to make an app even if it was weak!

It's a good app. I'm gonna have to study up on it to figure it out but it looks pretty versatile, like i have a wide range of options on how i want to build my app so long as i can figure out what I'm doing. I'm still learning, though.

Good app, I advice you to add "Notification" component to create notifications, it will be fine if these notifications will work even if app is closed.

Great app , but i have a problem , when i upload the apk file to the developer console, it says that the api level is 27 and i must upgrade it to 28 , what is the solution please

I develop number of app using this app. This app gives good foundation of android enviroment. When I published on google play store,it warn on API issue. Please rectify.

I found your videos about how to make apps and thank you for that, but your app sketchware starts to crach too many! Especially, i am in the middle of something (creating app) which is not nice at all!

i was able to start a project but it kept crashing when i tried to upload an image, then when it did work it gave me an error message. unfortunatley it flashed to fast so i couldnt see what it said.

there's an error about compiling java, it's says that "stop block doesn't exist in forever block." even though I didn't use forever block..

They've got a lot of features now, but here's what's gotten bad: They removed the feature to share apps with the community A bunch of stuff costs money now

any sugestion which the best emulator for sketchware? i got messge [data/data/com.besome.sketch/file/tmp/aapt[1]: syntax error:' ??4?= 4' unexpected] when using NOX

Very good Improovment needed for custom view I like very much such a beautifull aplication I made my you tube gaming app on sketchware My you tube chanel name Rijos gaming

This is not easy to use, MIT App Inventor or Kodular is a lot easier than this. You can only build a decent app with this if you have years of experience with JavaScript.

Good app but it looks now out of dated please add material disgn android 10 support and the apliltty to edit mainfist and flutter support

very good app, but i can't use this app on remix os. drag & drop function didn't work. wish it will be fix by the devlp

Nice app but the only problem is that my screen is big and the app space for creating apps is small for my phone pls fix it

Very nice app... But the present situation seems to be a big drama... Will there be any development over API LEVEL?

There are a lot of ads

Awesome. For an Android app it offers a lot of features. I'm shocked with all what this app offers. It for sure deserves five stars.

Please Upgrade API Level 29. Quick. We have a problem

Nice Application... Please add java.time.* Class And Date & Time Picker Dialogue.

Brilliant quick and easy app, just wish there was a graphical tool and a timer but I have made a few awesome applications

This rating is for my new Android pie(9) device only starting screen showing not responding app for all hour all day... My badluck...

I used to be able to create apps easily on here and I've double checked everything but I can't build anything as it keeps telling me something wrong

Dear Sketchware team, kindly upgrade api level 28, otherwise it is useless.

Good to develop apk.. But you can't upload to playstore.. API level is below than target API required.. Even if you subscribe also.. Helpdesk will not assist you.. I have contacted through mail also.. But received no reply.. Most irresponsible team.. I got frustrated..

Very good app. But please fix that I upload a font to my project and it don't show nothing, better not function

its just wah im a kid ad its NEEDS every little thing i cant even start!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

would be better but it's really hard to use and you can't download your game unless you have your security settings to let you download unknown sources

Great app! I only wish that you could customize the look of widgets better, otherwise its awesome

useful app. Now update needed to reach API level 28, as google play requirement. hope for textview finger zoom feature.

All was fine until you add admob. It doesn't show. it's a good thing I did not subscribe! I am so disappointed. I feel scammed!

Loving this. But we can do with more tutorials.... update- thank you for the tutorials!
