Definition: Android CDE

For nearly a decade, we have donated our Android version to the community without charge and without distracting ads, especially annoying on small screens. However, every so often Google drops support of various routines, and the code has to be updated. Over the years, Abhimanyu and Anjali Garg of India-based Apogaeis.com have generously donated their time fixing our code to meet Google's latest demands.

Google Has Done It Again
Google has notified us that as of November 2020 the source code for all Android apps must be upgraded to a more recent version of the Android operating system. Once again, we are investigating how this can be done. As a result, the version that you are reading now could be our last update for Android. We do not know yet.

Our Website Is Up-To-Date
However, at any time, you can go to ComputerLanguage.com for our definitions, which is always kept up-to-date. Fortunately, website code does not have to be changed very often. Otherwise, tens of millions of sites would have to be updated possibly as frequently as every year. In contrast, mobile and desktop operating systems are another breed because they are owned by profit-making corporations. Whenever Microsoft, Apple or Google decides it is no longer willing to maintain older applications, they must be changed in order to continue to work. See ComputerLanguage.com.
