...can I just move the b4a programs over to the new System?
And change the name on the code?
1.) How do I do this? cut and paste?

2.) To test: later can I pass the complied app on to my friend in California? Like I do with The android app?
(by putting it on my web site and letting the crome browser install
it(*.adk) on the
Device? Android phone/tablet).

1) It is more complicated. The UI is different. Some of the libraries are the same and some are different.

It is covered in the beginner's guide: http://www.b4x.com/b4i/documentation.html

2) You will need to add your friends devices UDIDs to the mobile provisioning file and then they can install it through iTunes.

1.) is there an example of using the "Html" lib in b4i? How do it do this?
2.) can I tell the html system to open a web page (as I did in b4a)? and display it to the device screen?
3.) can I get a response from an html page?(as I did in b4b)? and put it in local variables.
4.) the various libs(date input, voice output, voice input) are they there for b4i?

Also I have the class: clswheel.java which I used in the b4A program.
can I just move it over and set it up in the app folder?

You can see the list of libraries and modules here: http://www.b4x.com/b4i/documentation.html

I'm not familiar with html lib. Maybe you are referring to HttpUtils2 which is available in B4i.
You can also use WebView to show web pages.

You cannot use Java classes with B4i. If the B4A source code is available then you can adapt it to B4i (if it doesn't use Android specific APIs).

ok, i see that debug works and updates the program on my iphone...thanks.
but how do you compile a program that is like "b4a" or "Release"?
there is no release option on the drop down...or is this just a debug type of program?
not for making programs that work?
I think I have looked everywhere for this on the "IDE".

I am struggling with conversion to the b4i strings. The b4a lib: stringfunctions works for me just fine.
However I have no choice but to have my app run in b4i. So my question:
Will or when will the stringfunctions be converted to to b4i????
I do not see how I can do some of the things that I have done in B4A in B4I.

I don't plan to convert this library to B4i.

I do not see how I can do some of the things that I have done in B4A in B4I.
Anything that is done in this library can be implemented with the built-in methods. Which method are you trying to implement?
