AIDE for PhoneGap is an integrated development environment (IDE) for developing portable PhoneGap Apps directly on Android devices. You can use your exisiting HTML5/CSS/JavaScript web development skills to build Apps which can be quite easily transfered to various mobile platforms.

AIDE supports the full edit-compile-run cycle: write code with the feature rich editor offering advanced features like code completion, real-time error checking, refactoring and smart code navigation, and run your App with a single click.

AIDE is fully compatible with Eclipse PhoneGap projects. You can just copy the sourcecode to your device and open the Eclipse project in AIDE to start coding. Alternatively you can keep your sourcecode on your Dropbox - AIDE integrates with Dropbox and allows to easily download from your Dropbox and sync back your changes. AIDE can also open Android Studio projects, which follow the default folder structure.

Google play alert Cordova 3.5.1 atleast needed How to upgrade to latest version of Cordova. Google play says current version is not safe. I have sent an e-mail to fourapp also, but not have received any reply yet. If this problem get sorted out. I will change my rating.

David Grove

Great Thanks for on-device actual programming! I use it all the time on tablet.

Elise Nicole

May be abandon ware The PhoneGap/Cordova version used is old, and there's no way to upgrade it because Apache changed the way they distribute it. After repeated inquiry about appfour updating the app I've received no reply. Google is warning everyone with an app posted on Google Play Store made with this that the Cordova version has security flaws and your app may be removed from the store in the future. This was a great app. :-( Still is as long as you don't plan to distribute your app on the Google Play Store.

Stefan 'Steve' Koshy

Good program, but can't compile! Can't compile my project because some of Polymer's libraries have "JavaScript errors" even though it works perfectly fine everywhere else. Why is there no "ignore errors" function? I paid for this, I want it to work or I want a refund! Been a few months since I contacted the developer and I've gotten no response.

Joey Turner

Annoying Open web, phonegap or android project take me to the purchase page even after buying instead of loading the right aide app. Would give 5stars otherwise

Orlin Georgiev

Thought it did't work on Android 5, but... False alarm, to make it it work on Android L you may need to reinstall it and restart the device

Najib Bubong

5star to 1star Please fix the very annoying TOAST message in every single character I type

Josh Taylor

Works like a charm Love this app. Just wondering when you'll update this with the new phonegap version? Thanks for all your hard work.

Korey Johnson

great apps devs! I love these development apps, they're portable and you can develop anywhere!


5* when updated Will give 5 stars back when updated.

Daniel Fletcher

Love it!!! But could be better They're the best around! :D

KesherMedia Kay Em

Awesome, just what I need!!! Awesome, just what I need!!!

A Google User

Very nice! I love the layout, it is easy to use and very fluid. So far so good! 4stars since I am just starting with it, but cant complain yet.

DarkNight Studio

It's okay. could do with some tutorials

Sean Loper

Won't even open I've tried emailing the developer with no success.

Daniel Hadley

It is okay Should be given a choice to download the css and files, because we might want to do our own styles and script and might want to do some jQuery.

Aaron Moyer

Fluid and easy-to-use IDE I've been working on a project using this application as my IDE of choice, using only PhoneGap and the Crafty JS game engine/library. Everything is working nicely and writing code with my phone's default software keyboard and the shortcuts to commonly used characters has actually been more fun than using some of the tools I code on my PC with. No need to carry my laptop everywhere now. :) Looking forward to more features/updates!

Levi DeHaan

Pretty cool, not worth the money, not very good for dev This is great as a text editor or getting a project started however if you want to actually write an app on your phone you need a few more things. Number One for Cordova is being able to add plugins, you have to modify so many files to add,say contacts support but it should be automated for you since this is a phone interface. Number 2 is git support. This app does something with git but I am not sure what, the interface for git is too limited, we need to at least set remotes, but right now git is useless.

Kaiden Prince

An awesome app that alows you to create android apps with previous web development knowledge. Also, though not advertised, it is a usful web development IDE, so I often use it to develop my website. Thank you 'APPFOUR GMBH' for an awesome app!

Mr Snowdon

Excellent I code on my tablet while sat in front of the TV. Better github support would be ace, but even so 5 stars.

Aung Khant

Nice App Works well, great app.

Lars Wallin

Wow! Amazing stuff :) Note: Javascript engine has problems with some ES5 code (getters and setters etc). Fix perhaps?

Caleb Runnels

Great App Now that I bought the Note 3 I can use the device as a app powerhouse. One major improvement would be to have the ability to be able to turn off the keyboard from the application settings for the users that use bluetooth keyboards on devices with larger screens so the on screen keyboard doesn't take away from the experience. Also, I'm not able to get any data-icons to load for jquery mobile. Maybe it's just a bug with the live view and not an actual problem when complied.

Hugh Isaacs II

Lovely All I need is Cordova 3.1 support (at least 2.9.1).

Alex Reyes

Java code hints? Why not include all AIDE functionality? Like java code autocomplete. It can be good for hybrid apps development. I don't mind to pay for it.

Eric Webb

No refund Why is there no refund option?

Caleb holt

Works well Using dropbox to sync and git on the pc end makes for a pretty clean workflow. Only complaint is the android keyboard isnt sufficient for the coding I need to do. Not really their fault though. Could use vim controls also to account for not having a mouse.(not vim for sure but some better way than trying to touch everything)

Dylan Yaga

Great app The quality of this app is similar to AIDE for Java/C++, which means high quality. Very similar feature set - probably used the same code base. Only one minor problem; I have both editors installed, and when I attempt to create a new project but select a type not native to the editor (e.g., Java in the Phonegap editor, or Phonegap in the Java editor) the editor says the other needs to be installed to create this type of project - but it already is, just not being recognized I assume.

Widi Rajaka

As Good as It Gets! My request: Please support Google Drive as alternative for Dropbox. Thank you.

Robert McCain

AWESOME!!! ok the fact that this is possible at all is amazing!!! This application works great on my galaxy note 2. I do wish there was support for Google Drive, but dropbox works well enough. I cannot tell you how awesome it is to work on your pc then open your phone to do some quick cleanup on the go. Amazing!!!!!!

Bryan Poteet

Fantastic for Phonegap 2.9 Love this editor but looks as if it has issues with Phonegap 3.0. I made a clone of there sample project 'phonegap-2-style-3' after loading the project I was told it had 123 errors. These errors were from the api .java files. I really hope this app gets updated to handle the last Phonegap release.

Thomas Bonham

Error and Support Error and Support Need a way to exempted files from the error checking. It say I have 38 error but those are coming from a library that I'm using. So there isn't anything I can about them. Also I have emailed your support a few different time with your other app and no one ever gets back with me. I think I pay a lot of money for a app it should include a little support

Felix Delima

C", ) Good but kept on crashing on my Asus memo pad 7. 11MB is big file if I need to reinstall.

Adil Cruz

High Recomended App Now i can develop my own Apps at any place whit my tablet, justwhit HTML5/CSS3/JS/JQuery/JQuery mobile skills. I hope see soon this app whit a lastest phonegap version.

Naj Bee

need help Please fix the very annoying TOAST message in every single character I type. we emailed your team about this several weeks ago..

Carl Last

It has such great potential but FAILS This could be so much better but as others have said it appears to have been abandoned by developer(s). Useless old version of Phonegap

Ashok Chandra Punetha

Please fix the bug Dear Developers I am facing some problems in your latest version, I am unable to fetch data from server using Ajax please fix this problem......

Orlin Georgiev

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME CODING APPS THAT WILL GET REJECTED!!! What's the point of this IDE if Google Play rejects apps built with it? The reason for rejection is that it needs to get updated to Cordova 3.5.1 that fixes severe security vulnerabilities. The only way to work around this is to re-write huge chunks of your code to use the highly incompatible new Cordova SDK and rebuild it on your own on a computer - thus completely negating any reason to use this IDE to code on your phone. I have wasted months of my free time on a project that I must now abandon

Raj Rajan

Finally this update fixed the aapt error on Android 5.0 Finally this update fixed the aapt error on Android 5.0, let me see if I could upload on Google Play.

Elise Nicole

May be abandon ware The Cordova version used is old, and there's no way to upgrade it. After repeated inquiry about appfour updating the app I've received no reply. Google is no longer accepting apps made with the out of date version of Cordova used by this app. Still a great IDE as long as you don't plan to distribute your app on the Google Play Store.

Loren J Erickson

Amazing as far as it goes... I was super excited to see that there was a Cordova version of this app, having purchased the android version a long time ago. Simple apps are pretty easy to get up and running. But for serious development on the go there are a few more things I would love to see. 1. Integration of bower package management. I don't hardly do anything with Web Development without bower, and bringing in third party Javascript libraries is tedious at best. 2. Git providers other than github please. 3. Starting a new project based one of the thousands of seed repositories on github. Clone the repo then make it mine (on bitbucket). There's no other way to get something serious done quickly. 4. Ionic integration would be really cool, but perhaps impractical on this platform.

Nicholas Waltham

There seems to be a bug in the JavaScript Syntax Checker of the AIDE Phonegap edition. If an object uses or redefines a reserved word for some other purpose than is defined in the standard, the syntax checker shows this as an error, when in fact it's allowed. This means that some third party libraries that actually run perfectly well are shown to have a lot of errors. The application compiles and runs fine. However this problem floods own ones own errors during development. It would be nice to be able to redefine this behaviour or at least have the option for the IDE to ignore certain groups of files (e.g. known good third party libraries). Since this is a developer tool - I would like to see better support - such as bug trackers and so on.

Tony Edwards

Lollipop Works Waiting for version 6 compatibility so I can develop on nexus 7. Then I'll give stars!

Mike Schwartz

Can't submit Published APKs on Google Play!!!! I went to publish my app on Google Play and it said, "Your app submission has been rejected because it contains security vulnerabilities, which is a violation of our dangerous products policy. If the uploaded APK was an app update, the previous version is still available on Google Play. More details about this rejection have been emailed to the account owner."

Thomas Streit

Love coding while in a train, plane or similiar

Daniel Fletcher

Cannot make new lines This is a critical error that's been around for a while. While unfixed this entire app is useless.

A Google User

Very nice! I love the layout, it is easy to use and very fluid. So far so good! 4stars since I am just starting with it, but cant complain yet.


I see a promising update... But not willing to invest my own time to test. Has the new update fixed the issue with publishing to Google Play? PhoneGap was updated?

adam smith

AIDE DOESN'T UNLOCK JAVA, THIS IS A WHOLE SEPARATE APP Why would you sell a plug-in that doesn't plug in ?

Paul Finnerty

Can build apps using webview too! Didn't bother with phone gap in the end, just used this to compile a simple chrome webview app (chrome webview is built into android from KitKat onwards). Worked a treat! So yeah, does compile Java as well.

Ryan A

Awesome Now u can code on my phone this is amazing thank you, it was worth it!
