Isn't that particular obfuscator only for Java apps? GLB produces native code and Java part is only used as the basis for app and for wrapping native system functions from what I understand. So code protection is such an issue? Or you intended to use it for minimazing code size.
Check my source code editor for GLBasic - link Update: 20.04.2020

Bit of both...removing logical function names etc...

Maybe the end java is already using other function names that differ? Not sure.

Just want to make changing the app as awkward as possible...

im was also looking into this thing as well. Im thinks the Android SDK using it automatic. But this does with Java based code, not with c++ code glbasic uses. So nothing im can do here and will not been future tested for that.
