Thank you very much for your reply and offer of help.
I’ve just looked at the essay I’ve written below - I hope you have the patience to read it!
To answer your queries:
My statement that “most of the people…use I-Phones” was based on a miniscule sample ( I asked my 3 daughters and their husbands to request their friends and colleagues to download and test Imps Away and (hopefully) donate. That covered maybe 10 to 15 people in the age range 40 to 50. I also asked their 6 children, aged between 12 and 21 to do the same. That brought in maybe another 10 to 15. Quite a lot of responders viewed it on someone else’s Android phone and asked for an IOS version, which is why I discovered Thunkable.
So, I found the following link
and, with a couple of objections from Thunkable, I uploaded my .aia file, which seemed to work ok.
This left me with Thunkable being quite willing to produce an android version of the app but with no clue how to convert to IOS. Presumably, from what I infer from your reply, there is no Thunkable mechanism to carry out this conversion - clearly my misunderstanding.
I presume that Thunkable has grown from AI2 since the “jigsaw” pieces look identical and seem to work the same way (hence my assumption).
Regarding your kind offer of video help, I don’t know what to say - Imps Away was written for the specific purpose of raising money to help the UK’s NHS workers (Doctors, Nurses and Carers) during the current pandemic. Imps Away (in the Google Play Store) has raised £370. Public awareness is moving on and I don’t believe my investing $99/year to publish an IOS version would have any chance of breaking even (I’d be better to send the money direct to the charity myself!)
However, In November this year, there will be another National Fund Raising event called “Save the Children” and I have been considering modifying Imps Away for that event - if I complete that early enough to publicise it outside my “family and friends circle” it might raise a lot more. Thunkable seems to use the same commands, routines etc as AI2 so one possibility would for me be to create the modified app in Thunkable which, I think???, would allow me to produce both Android and IOS versions (is this correct?). This scenario might well involve me asking for help/guidance from you. If you agree, would that be better done via a new forum entry? or direct by email?
If you’ve read this far, I applaud your stamina and thank you!
