AppGameKit Mobile - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes - we are one of the UK’s most recognised indie providers of game-creation software, with a great range of affordable game-making tools that make it easier for anyone to make their own apps and computer games.

The business was founded in 1999 and over the years the team has created many products including AppGameKit, GameGuru, VR Quest, and DarkBasic. Prior to that, we developed a range of successful computer software products that became household favourites including Lego, Rally Championship, Fun School, and Art Attack.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Making AppGameKit Mobile work well on touch devices was the main challenge. We're essentially taking a desktop editor and making it work on a phone or tablet. There was a lot of testing and fine-tuning to make it work well.

Deborah from TheGameCreators arranged the answers for the interview questions. TheGameCreators is based in the UK, and one of the most recognised indie providers of game-creation software, with a great range of affordable game-making tools that make it easier for anyone to make their own apps and computer games.

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

TheGameCreators are the developers behind the leading app Driving Theory Test 4in1Kit – Apple’s #1 paid-for app in the UK for the last three years and the top app for UK Driving Theory on both iOS and Android. So of course we love this app.

How long have you been working on this app?

The main desktop version of AppGameKit is almost a decade old.

The AppGameKit Mobile version was first released in 2018. Before it was released there was a period of development of about six months, so we would say we've worked on it for 3-4 years so far.

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

Some users only have mobile devices like phones and tablets. There are also users who want to code on the move. This is why we offer this free, mobile version of AppGameKit Mobile.

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.

The main benefit of using AppGameKit Mobile is that you can code using our AppGameKit Script language and see immediate 2D and 3D results on your mobile device. You can literally code a game in a very short space of time and see the results running on your phone. That's pretty cool and we also include a range of demos to show users what's possible with the app.

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

For now we are focused on fine-tuning AppGameKit Mobile to ensure it works well with the latest iOS and Android operating systems. We may add some new features later in 2021.

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.)?

We would love for new users to spread the word about how great AppGameKit Mobile is and maybe try the PC version too. Give us a shout out on Facebook or Twitter @AppGameKit too!
