AppGameKit Mobile - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, we have developed many projects on PC and mobile devices since 1999.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The main challenge was creating an OpenGl rendering engine that works well on Android and also works on other platforms like iOS, Windows, and Mac.

Rick is a co-founder of TheGameCreators. He manages the day-to-day scheduling of development work, liaises with the dev team, and manages the business’s accounts, amongst many other operational tasks and challenges.
Rick is the realist within the team, keeping expectations managed and projects on schedule. His current focus is producing AppGameKit Studio – our latest game development tool.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

I guess the ones I use daily. My banking app for Nationwide here in the UK - it's simple and fast to use, Gmail for checking what's coming in while I'm out and about, TikTok for some quick entertainment and a game I have been playing for far too long Best Fiends!

How long have you been working on this app?

We released it in 2018, so four years now.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

It was a way to let users know about our PC, Mac, and Linux versions of our game development solutions.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

We've made it really easy to code games with our special, easy-to-learn programming language. This is its main advantage, it lets you quickly have sprites flying around your phone or tablet in just a few lines of code.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

The app is complete as it is. I think it would be good to add some new up-to-date demos to it later this year to show what's possible with it.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Just check it out and run the demos. It's free to download and use, so there's no downside!
