- 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.

Reviews From google play store

[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-

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!!! 😂🤣😂🤣

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.

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. No new update until now. Very disappointed.

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

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.

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!

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.

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!

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

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.

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 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.....

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?

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.

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

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.

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

This app is so so good. I've tried creating an app and I was stocked where I created a listview, and added a list to it; I was then trying to add items to the listview, and I didn't know how to do it. Am stocked, any suggestions? And could you please add more events, components, and more activities? I'll rate 5 stars, and recommend it to my friends.

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)..

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

i am badly dissapointed from this app. It lacks many things! For example do, while, for, commands are not exists! They are very important commands! Also command if doesnt work properly! its not just a true or false condition! its like if (something happens). Example: if(x<=5) {action}. Also there is no "<=" and ">=" signs which is also important! There is some things that must normally exist on every app creator...

Worst to the extreme! i spend hours of programming in this app which i thought was wonderful, the whole thing crashed several times which automatically delete some parts of the project. Now it wiped my entire project!! what the **** ? Thanks to the frequent crashing of your app, I have to reboot my phone every single time when your app crashes cuz the thing gets stuck on the screen and never goes off until i reboot. Just give us an update fixing this or remove your pathetic app from playstore

A bit hard to get used to but still good, some things glitch or can't run but i have the most trouble with fonts, they just don't work because it uses a different extention that i can't seem to find in font downloads. it even showsthe preview like:This is my new font!This is a preview or somthing, but if i done somthing like change typeface [project_paintball] style [bold] it had an error, whitch really annoys me because it makes it look more boring. also the store is gone now, whitch is sad.

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)

Best App Ever! I can't Wait Until They Realease Version 4.0.0!! Bit their is a bug where any time i try to change the font the Sketchware app crashes. 😕🙁😨😰😓😢 Please update soon guys! Hope your all doing well.

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 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!

The app is great, just the build takes a long time and sometimes the app will just close. If they fix that, 5 Stars.

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

Dismal since November. Haven't published a thing. Had to wait two months for them to update during which time all tutorials had been removed. I finally resorted to writing the code down line by line, and found nothing wrong. I abandoned the app and could not get the custom ListView working in a new simplified app. I created a new app which only was designed to fill a custom ListView.... Empty variables. Empty!!! It'll NEVER work with variables emptied at last moment!!!

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.

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

bug bug bug API 27

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

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

Yes! this is what i've been looking for. I just wanna turn my website to an app and this works great. Oh and about the ads, just please accept it. Maybe those ads is nothing for you but it was important for the dev team. Gonna looking for tutorials ^_^

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

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 trying to publish an app on play store but on uploading apk file it says API LEVEL IS 29 required but your API LEVEL is 27 . Please fix this.

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

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.

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

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.

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

*Admobs just won't work!* When I created the same application with Kodular, everything was working fine. Please sort this out Sketchware. *Application is superb* It requires quite a bit of Practice and General Knowledge of How programs work.

Incredible app. I absolutely love it. One suggestion though, could you please include a textNoSuggestions to the edit text input type options? Thank you, this app is truly amazing and a great introduction to making android apps.

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.

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!

i would love to use this because this does not require coding knowledge it works on block coding which is easy to use(drag and drop) and this has many tutorials with that this can be used easily.

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...😠😠😠

Update Sketchware... With component. Its long time you haven't update new view and components. Many user has lefted sketchware. Please Update new Components. Need Updates

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..

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

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.

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

Hello, I am glad to use this app.It is very helpful for people who have much interest in developing android apps with no coding Knowledge. But I don't know why the block helper option and example tutorials are removed in the new version?

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

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

Very nice app. You can make apps without coding! Thanks so much @Sketchware ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

hey sketchware resolve save button issues that even after clicking save button it shows save and exit on clicking back button!!!

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.

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

some days it was work properly. but after its not work. whrn i clicked on run button it not work. when i open a new project and then exit it not show in the front page . nothing works.

Nice app for unleashing your reativity, but I have one suggestion: Diffrent types of dialouge box (e.g: text input, loading). I hope to see those feature in the sketchware application.

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.

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.

very usefull but ads don't work , and I'm glad if u can add feature of import Android studio project to sketchware, that leads more customization

I dont get why is so complicated this ne an easy tool to create apps the person who did is app is someone who codes...and created this app not easy at all I'm confused what each thing does and how I could do something why I just cant add a text and move it around and put it where I want why do I have to add specific things for something so simple.

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

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.

Good but when I try to test it said app not installed. Tried 100 times.

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 think this app is the best for developer a software . Please ad Facebook / unity ads platform in Sketchware

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

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..

Having a problem where when running it would say "getting ready to build" then it would just disappear.

Works good but i hate that you have 3 days to pay! Well remember some people dont have the time to get the money!

it seems to be good but i have a lot to learn because so far i have just finished a project but it is only showing the application icon on my screen and if try to open it ,there is nothing on it so i still have a lot to learn

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

I try to create app using this app.but when activete library manager it will show error messages.datebase related app can't create in this app.when it is run error messages will appear .try to fixed this things .

its all perfect. the only problem is that it take lots of time to compile

The best app in the world!!!!!! 😱😱😱👍👍 Exactly what I needed. Even though I dont accept or see the ads, love it. (•3•)♥

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

Add an option to connect with FCM(Firebase cloud messaging)

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

The strongest but the easiest application for creating application, almost need no programming knowledge requirement.

I paid for the premium feature, but it says that the publisher is "forbidden" when i publish to google play. Please help!

Sir text to speech not working and also app not import data from SD cards. Please modify these problems.
