I have been a professional software engineer for 40 years and am also an astrophysicist who develops apps related to my scientific work. First I would like to say that I am impressed with the range of functionality offered by Thunkable. That said, I am running into situations where fundamental features (that one expects to exist in any IDE) do not exist in the Thunkable IDE. Here are a few that really need to be added to the IDE to increase productivity and/or allow the user to produce top quality professional looking apps.
- Ability to copy and paste objects that have already been placed on a screen
- Text placed in buttons should have these alignment settings: Top, Center, Bottom
- Foreground text color settings for buttons (don’t restrict to only black text)
- Option to put line borders around layout objects as-well-as around cells within tables.
I have just started using Thunkable, and so I think I will probably find that there are other important features that are lacking. I will give you feedback as I discover more about the Thunkable IDE. I would like to use Thunkable for my Android development instead of B4A, since Thunkable has a more intuitive IDE that does not require extensive setup and clumsy syntax.
Again, I think fundamentally you have a great product in Thunkable, but there are still basic features that it lacks, but needs.
