Greetings! I would like to create a program that can be used as an app.  A person will answer questions, and based on each question a 2d shape will be placed on the screen.  At the end they will have a screen of all the object on the screen based on their answers.  Each object will be placed in an exact position.  So, if they answer the question with cat, a cat would be placed on the screen.  I would like to find a program using JAVA where I can create this and have it deployable on Apps for phones, ipads and pc etc.  A program that is fairly simple to code.  I created a simple game in JAVA years ago.  Thank you.

Hey Emma.  Great question.  In fact, I was wondering a similar thing myself.  So, I did a little research.  Found out simply use JAVA and you are good to go.  Yes it will not be as fancy as other JAVA application but this will be simple and nice.  You can use Jcheckbox to ask the questions, then have active listeners to be able to draw things on the screen with the button that is activated.  Since you need things in a precise place I would suggest using tiles, so you can specify the exact (x,y) coordinates.  Hope this helps. Here are some links for you too!
It is so amazing you had the same exact question, and we have the same exact names. 

Blessings Emma Humble
