Screen Limit exists?


#1

Is there any limit of creating screens? Because I create a screen and this message appears:


Or the limit is the apk size limit?


#2

I believe the screen limit is there because if you have more than 10, the app will run out of memory.

@barreeeiroo It is limited by the apk size, not the number of screens. Most people tend to hit the size limit b/w 10-15 screens, so we just put a warning starting when you try to add screen 11


Max screens number

Okey. thanks for solving the problem


#5

What is the limit of apk size? I´m trying to continue with my app and I cant´t because it fails when I enter on it. The size of my apk is 13 MB.


#6

I’m not sure what is the limit of the apk size, but if your app crashes could be because there is a code blocks error


#7

The app don´t crashes when I use it in my phone, it crashes when I try to acces to Thunkable


#8

@Roberto_Perez_Munoz The size limit is 10MB


#About app maximum space?
#9

Ok, thanks for the reply!


#10

Excuse my ignorance, but why is there a 10MB limit to the App size within Thunkable?


#11

As far as I know it has to do with the build server…Google App Engine? or Google Cloud Engine?? There’s another App Inventor instance (services?) that doesn’t have this limitation, as well as App Inventor offline


#12

Is that the MIT version of Thunkable?


#13

That’s code.appinventor.mit.edu I believe.


#14

To add to @Domhnall’s response.
Thunkable/App Inventor use Google App Engine. GAE has a request limit of 10MB which cannot be exceeded.

How to overcome the App Inventor project limit of 10 MB

#16

So, if I am following what has been said, as Thunkable (the App Inventor and AppyBulider) are programmes that operate via your browser and do not work off-line, due to the server’s storage limitations, 10MB is the Max.

OK, so with that question answered, here is another (lol). Are there any Thunkable type progs out there allowing the user to create Apps off-line?


#17

It won’t have the same look as a Thunkable app, and you won’t have access to the exact same blocks as Thunkable, but if you read what @Taifun has linked above it will answer your question.


#18

you might want to take a look at the overview to understand, how MIT App Inventor, Thunkable and Appybuilder are connected
protip: you also will find an offline solution there…

Well thanks for all the answers, but nowt going! Nothing for Macs within those links (well at least what I can see)

Now, while we are on the subject…

The App Inventor was created by MIT right?

Then came Thunkable. (Which is based off the App Inventor, free and by what I have seen so far, with a nice friendly, helpful community)

And then came along AppyBuilder, correct? (Also copied from the MIT’s work)
