System Requirements

Twixl Support Team Updated: - Created :

    For the InDesign plug-in

    Adobe InDesign from CC2015 and up on macOS or Windows.

    For the app builder application

    The Twixl Publisher application requires the latest version of macOS Catalina 10.15.x.

    For creating iOS apps

    Xcode will allow you to get a preview of your application in the iOS simulator on macOS. The System Check under Preferences will allow you to install it if it is not.

    • Xcode is a free download from the Mac App Store
    • In order to create app builds that can be installed on a device, or to submit apps in the App Store, you need at least Xcode 11 and need to be registered as a developer in the "iOS Developer Program" (99$/yr): Start here to enroll now.

    For creating Android apps

    • Android SDK: the Android SDK needs to be available to create Android builds. The System Check in preferences allows you to check for the presence of the Android SDK and offer to install it if it's unavailable, or update it if a newer release is available. 
    • In order to submit Android apps in the Google Play store, you need a Google Play account.
