Use techBASIC App Builder and Xcode on a Mac to compile it for distribution. Sell your app on the App Store.See: http://www.byteworks.us/Byte_Works/techBASIC_App_Builder.htmlSOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT WITH techBASICKEY FEATURES: COLLECT DATA 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 BASIC PROGRAMMING 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 ANALYZE DATA 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 GRAPHING CAPABIITIES 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-users graphing calculator--see how in our web tutorial techBASIC IN THE STEM CLASSROOM Understand physics from real data, like zero G on a swing Check calculus homework with fast, accurate numeric quadrature (integration) Quickly plot functions to understand coordinate systems Use techBASIC as a power-users graphing calculator (see our tutorial blog!) DOCUMENTATION Built-in Help System Quick Start Guide Reference Manual Over 300 pages Dozens of sample programs and images Free download from the web site TUTORIALS Tutorials on the web site present complete programs you can modify Accessing Bluetooth LE devices The Power-Users Graphing Calculator Numeric Integration Linear Regression Using controls Matrices and vectors Connect to outside sensors using HiJack Use the magnetometer as a metal detector Collect data from a stunt kite flight
What's new in this version:
The user interface has been reworked to support iOS 7. Complete support for BLE peripheral mode lets you treat an iPhone or iPad as a BLE device. Chapters 9 and 10 of Building iPhone and iPad Electronics Projects show two projects using these commands. New events have been added to support BLE. The BLE class has a new method to support BLE peripheral mode: newBLEPeripheralManager. BLEService adds the isPrimary method. A new method, Comm.isReadyForOutput, allows an app to check to see if a TCP/I... See all new features »
