With just a few lines of code, you can create a Xojo app for iOS and Android that shows a new cat picture each time you launch it. I call this app “CatsUp!”. It’s a play on ketchup/catsup, get it?
If 2020 was a year of change for Xojo, 2021 was the year many of the pieces fell into place. From API 2.0, an Android pre-release, Apple Silicon native IDE, building and remote debugging 64-bit macOS apps from Windows and Linux and dark mode on Windows, 2021 saw a lot of hard work behind the scenes come to fruition for Xojo.
This is a very exciting week at Xojo! Not only is Xojo 2021 Release 3 here, but we are thrilled to announce that the new Xojo Android platform is now is pre-release testing! In celebration of these two milestones, Xojo’s Black Friday sale starts now and ends November 29th at 11:59PM CT. There’s never been a better time to get Xojo!
Xojo Android Pre-Release is now in pre-release testing. If you have a current license and are part of the Testers forum channel, you should see a new Android sub-category for this special Android Pre-Release, with download links.
Our vision for Xojo has always been to make it fast and easy for people of varying programming skill levels to create applications. The primary…

For over 20 years, Xojo has been the spiritual successor to VB, a rapid, cross-platform programming language and integrated development environment (IDE). Often called “VB for the Mac”, Xojo is more powerful than VB6 and more approachable than VB.NET. Two factors that are increasingly important because modern coders are everywhere, not just in the technology department.
Happy (almost) summer! It’s been a while since our last Android update, so we thought you might want to see and learn a bit more…
The MobileMoviePlayer is a relatively new iOS feature in the Xojo Programming language. To use MobileMoviePlayer start a new iOS project and drag the MoviePlayer control from the Library onto a Screen.
Here’s a fun little project you can try to get a feel for some simple animation in your iOS and future Android apps.
We’re hard at work on Xojo’s upcoming Android support — it is our top priority. As we’ve discussed previously, you can see in the current versions of Xojo that the latest iOS controls now start with “Mobile” in their name. Although Android and iOS will start off as different project types, implementing the “Mobile” prefix is an important step to complete so you will see similar controls when Android support is available.
