To set this configurable option, sign into AppyBuilder and open an existing app or create a new app. Next, in the Component section, select Screen1 (main screen of project):
Now, in the Screen1 properties, you’ll notice drop-down option for setting the minimum API and maximum API versions (Android API version):
Use MinAPI to create backward compatibility all the way back to Android API 14 (Ice Cream Sandwich) to Android API 21 (Lollipop).
Use MaxAPI to meet Google Play’s target API level (26) requirement. Note that Target API 26 requires app user to manually grant permission for sensitive permissions. AppyBuilder includes built-in blocks / feature to ease this process for you and will automatically display relevant information allowing user to grant permissions (such as image below):

AppyBuilder FREE online platform allows individuals to design and build Android mobile apps, using Drag-n-Drop interface. You can use Wi-Fi or USB to connect to AppyBuilder companion for Live-Development testing.

Below is a tutorial from  Husain Al-Haboubi, a community member in AppyBuilder forum HERE. It discusses using GenyMotion emulator for Live Development.

Installing Emulator

  • Download and install GenyMotion: https://www.genymotion.com/#!/download
  • Download and install Oracle VM VirtualBox (Currently, only v5.1.26 works): https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
  • Open GenyMotion and install and add a virtual device – choose any one.
  • Close GenyMotion and open Oracle VM VirtualBox. Choose the virtual device you have just added then press Settings. From Network >> Adapter 2 choose Bridged Adapter from Attached to. Then click OK. (Leave Adapter 1 as Host-only Adapter)
  • Above will create a unique IP address for the Virtual Device in your home network.
  • Open the GenyMotion again and double click the virtual device. This will open the virtual device.
  • The virtual device has no Google Play Store and it has to be installed manually by yourself.
  • After you have successfully ran the emulator and it’s up and running, click on Open GAPP on the top right corner of the emulator. Click Agree and Install. This will install Google Play on your emulator and will restart your emulator.
  • At this time, you are done and you can open Google Play and sign in to your Google account then download and install AppyBuilder companion from Play Store.
  • Note: If you are having issues with the companion identifying the Wi-Fi, open up Oracle VM VirtualBox >> Select the device >> Settings >> Adapter 2 >> Advanced >> Change Adapter Type to PCnet-Fast III

Using Camera in the Virtual Device

If your app uses Camera and you would like to perform Live-Testing, follow instructions below

  • Close all virtual devices and close GenyMotion.
  • Download and install ManyCam: http://download.manycam.com/
  • Open ManyCam, click the small arrow on screen 1 then Desktop >> Area under cursor.
  • Keep ManyCam open then open Oracle VM VirtualBox. Click on the virtual device and then settings. Click Display >> Video Capture. Check Enable Video Capture.
  • Next, open the virtual device. When it’s open, click on the camera icon on the right bar (Third icon).

Scratch Card using Sprites on a Canvas

Title

Join Community: http://Community.AppyBuilder.com

Drag, Drop, Snap Blocks, Build app

Tutorial & Video Production:  By: imagPixii Pixii Bomb

TUTORIAL DIFFICULTY: Medium
You are not supposed to follow along step-by-step, second-by-second. Please do not attempt to follow at this pace, it would be impossible. You should be able to follow along easily if you are able to find blocks by looking at a screenshot.

VIDEO DESCRIPTION:
Simulate scratching off a circle by using a simple animation with Image Sprites and a Clock. In this mini-game, users get 3 chances to find a cherry on a scratch card. If the user finds 1 cherry, they get 10 points. If the user finds 2 cherries, they get 25 points, and if the user finds 3 cherries they get 100 points. The icons on the scratch card will be generated randomly each time the user plays the mini-game. We’ll use test labels to help us “cheat” during development.
