RFO BASIC! is a dialect of Dartmouth Basic that allows you to write and run programs directly on your Android device.

    There is a 200+ page manual available in pdf and docx format.

    In addition to the traditional Basic features, your have access to:

    Graphics (with Multi-touch),
    Build User Interfaces with HTML and JavaScript,
    Device Sensors,
    Music Play,
    Text to Speech,
    Voice Recognition,
    Sound Pools,
    Audio Recording,
    Tone Generation,
    Data Structures such as:Array/List/Stack/Bundle
    Internet Browsing,
    Text and Byte file I/O,
    User defined functions,
    FTP Client,
    TCP/IP Client and Server Sockets,
    Send and Receive SMS Messages,
    Send Emails,
    Make a phone call,
    Superuser access (on rooted devices)

    BASIC! programs may be packaged into applications. There are two processes provided for this. One process generates a home screen shortcut but requires BASIC! installed to run. The other process generates a stand alone application that does not need BASIC! installed. The resulting application can be offered on the Android Market.

    All of the features of BASIC! are documented in the manual, De Re BASIC!.

    The install package includes over three dozen BASIC! source code files that explain and demonstrate the implementation details of this dialect.

    BASIC! is being continuously improved. Many of the improvements have come from user requests. Also, since BASIC! is open source, others have begun on the code. Join the BASIC! forum and become part of the development team.

    Permissions: This application asks for many permissions. None of permissions are exercised by BASIC! on its own. They are only exercised if you, the BASIC! programmer, writes a program that exercises them. For example, BASIC! will never intercept a SMS message unless you use the SMS commands in a program that you write.

    A throwback to the days of my misspent youth writing BASIC programs all day. Thanks for making BASIC for Android.

    Using an Android Tablet I can now program in BASIC like I had dug out my old Desktop and Monitor
