We’re working on this at the moment - As we originally mentioned, we’ll have this available before the August 1 deadline, however we’re hoping to have it ready by next week.

If you have a particularly important update that you’re planning on shipping, then why not aim to release it on July 31? This way you’ll know for certain you won’t encounter any issues.

It might take a little longer to get the Classic update released - at this point I’d recommend that you use Thunkable X, as it is actively being developed and supported at the moment.

I am afraid that X is not a valid substitute for Classic, some apps make use of features like canvas which is not currently supported in X.
Moreover, there is perhaps the need to address the memory footprint of X application, which apparently load libraries and dependencies that add dozen of megabyte to an .apk file and to the “as installed” memory occupied, when compared with the exact same functions done in Classic.

That wasn’t clear enough?


We upgraded the target API level to 28 in the platform and just finished testing it. We are planning to roll it out to sometime tomorrow (July 24). We will keep you posted :slight_smile:

we are ready to wait for thunkable classic API level 28 but we want Thunkable Classic only, please let us know how much time it would take.

has classic been updated yet?

how is it going to happen for the apps already in use will it be necessary to redo them? thank you

No, an app that is already in production is still supported for existing devices.
The risk comes from future Android release that may turn out the be incompatible, and suddenly your app is no longer available for those newest machines.

THAT is the risk.

Normally, you’d just make a new apk using a Thunkable package maker that has been upgraded to support the needed API level, without having to change anything to your code; except that Thunkable is unwilling to pledge updating this support going forward. Worse, they even stated that they would NOT support (i.e. implement future API level upgrade) from the end of this year.
