This IDE is okay, while the only problem right now is that the IDE does not have some of the newer Libs installed, which might lead to incompatibility issues. But all, in all, if the author continues development, it might even be good enough to get featured.

Great program for anyone who programs TI-BASIC. TokenIDE makes it easy to quickly update programs or write new ones without the tedious task of sending programs between the calculator and computer. A couple of points could be improved, though.

First, it'd be nice if some form of color coding was implemented. Without color codings, it's difficult to determine whether the code entered into the IDE is the same as the TI-BASIC command its supposed to correspond to. The only way to distinguish between a Disp command, and a disp string, for example, is by referencing the hex codes on the right side, which can get very confusing with long or complicated routines. And besides, the program would look a lot less dreary with color conventions.

Second, the compilation process is kinda awkward. I mean, after I entered the name and hit enter, the program just sorta sat there. It took me a while to figure out that the 8xp landed in the same directory as the IDE. It would be kinda helpful if there was a folder for holding compiled programs, or at least a text box telling me what was happening.

Finally, I like the tools options, but most of the current tools are somewhat useless (at least to me). New tools would be greatly appreciated, like maybe a textsprite or plotsprite creator, a code snipper inserter, a syntax checker, a documentary of TI-BASIC commands, or perhaps a hex code generator.

In conclusion, the IDE is currently very satisfactory, with its advantages in simplicity and efficacy. However, a few improvements would greatly enhance it.
