App, Not A Game (Countdown Timer For 2018)

Hello everyone,

I have used stencyl for making an app, not a game. You can check out the app "count down timer for new year" from the link:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ineasoft.newyear

I know it has been asked in the forums before but; why does stencyl support only making games? Stencyl is a great tool for making mobile applications and I think it would be great if we could make native apps using stencyl.

I am looking forward to your comments about this.

Thank you =)

Stencyl was designed to create games, but as Squeeb says, he uses for all types of apps, as I'm sure other people do. I'm actually planning a non-game app myself.

You'll find that a lot of the terminology refers to game making, but you can use it for anything.

It would make more sense to call Stencyl a program for making software, as saying just games implies that making games is all Stencyl is capable of.

I know it has the capability of doing other apps too. But wouldn't it be better if we could put textboxes, buttons ...etc.

I have another question for you guys, can we make the soft keyboard(of the phone) appear in our apps by entering a code, and make a text appear on the screen?

All those things are possible. There were extensions that can support these. Unfortunatley, I can't point you to the exact direction. Look around though.

Good stuff, hopefully once Stencyl 3.5 is released someone might look in to making an extension for HAXE UI  http://haxeui.org which would make building other stuff much easier - especially text boxes etc
