Android Development - FML

Hey everyone

This might be one of those “refer to ten billion sticky posts” questions, but I write everything on my Android or iPhone. I completed my first, now published novel using this method.

It’s just something I have to do in order to write. There’s a method to my madness.

I know my way around mobile devices and tend to always figure out a workaround.

Where do I even start?

I cannot use a laptop currently.

I submitted my entry to the 2021 Global Game Jam using just my phone, while my PC was out for an upgrade. All it took was a text editor and a BASIC (the programming language I used) compiler to develop.

I’d personally start learning Kotlin then be familiarized with Java (at least learn how to read the code). There are apps to write code so it won’t be such a major problem. Watch YouTube tutorials.

If you get tired typing on the small screen, I suggest using those smaller physical keyboards you can connect on your phone. Coding features a lot of non-letter keys and it can be tiring to constantly keep finding those hard to find symbols on your phone keyboard.
