JCode IDE for Java Android - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?


What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Making auto-completion work.... as I had to index all files into a database, observe files and reindex them when they changed.

I am a self-taught programmer whose hobby is programming. I have been coding for about 5 years now.

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

Termux and CCTools.

How long have you been working on this app?

About 2 and a half years.

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

To be able to auto-complete so they don't have to unnecessarily check the documentation and auto import. They don't have to keep scrolling to the top to do it manually.

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.

What made me first create this app was that I lost my computer and had to code on a phone. I found out that the best IDE on the Play Store, AIDE, was unavailable in my country. That was when I decided to create my own using another IDE from the Play Store called CCTools. My IDE surpassed CCTools so I switched over to it to develop itself. It supports auto-completion and automatically imports used classes. It still lacks debugging which AIDE supports though.

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

Adding support for Gradle and debugging.

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.)?

I would like to ask them to share the app.
