Beta Version of AIDE Enables Application Building On Android 48

sl4shd0rk writes "Hackers can now build applications directly on their Android devices with the beta release of AIDE. The Android IDE is at beta version 7, and already allows editing and compiling of apps as well as integration with LogCat. AIDE is even compatible with projects started on Eclipse so you can move a project over and work on it. Finally, a reason to get yourself that Transformer keyboard dock?" sl4shd0rk also provided a screencast which is attached. InfoQ has a short interview with the developers. Mildly interesting is that it does the compilation on device instead of shipping the work off to some network service or other. The app is, like a lot of Android stuff, only free cost with no corresponding source code at the moment.

    I'd still rather work on a powerfull desktop with big dual monitors- a nice split keyboard and a mouse for that kind of thing.

    It's neat you can program on an android... but I'd still rather create on my PC. I'm sure it makes testing easier though to be right on the android device.

    Crazy thought... android on a desktop or laptop anyone?

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.

Working...
