Definition: Android CDE

The August 2021 Android version of this encyclopedia, entitled "Computer Desktop Encyclopedia" (CDE), was our final Android app (release #230 on Google Play).

Starting in 2010, we donated our Android version to the community without charge and without annoying ads. However, every so often Google dropped support of various routines, and the code had to be updated. Although we financed the development and the updates for the first six years, volunteers in India kept it going until the COVID crisis in 2021.

The Plan: Drop the Mobile Apps
In 2018, our ComputerLanguage.com website was revamped into a responsive site for all screen sizes. As a result, we eliminated the iOS version and planned the same for Android. The only reason we kept updating it for three more years was because of the wonderful 4.8-star rating on Google Play (hard to give up that publicity).

However in 2021, Google again made code changes, the app began crashing, and there was nobody to update it. We keep the August 2021 version on Google Play to link existing users to ComputerLanguage.com.

Thank You
