For the InDesign plug-in
- Adobe InDesign CC2017, CC2015, CC2014, CC, CS6 on macOS or on Windows
For the app builder application
The Twixl Publisher application requires the latest version of either macOS High Sierra 10.13, macOS Sierra 10.12 or Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
For creating iOS apps
Xcode will allow you to get a preview of your application in the iOS simulator on macOS (but trust us, you'll never need to open the application itself ;-). The System Check at startup will automatically check for the presence and offer a link to install it if Xcode is not installed.
For creating Android apps
- Android SDK: the Android SDK needs to be available to create Android builds. The System Check at startup will automatically check for the presence of the Android SDK and offer to install it if it's unavailable.
- In order to submit Android apps in the Google Play store, you need a Google Play account.
