Platforms: iOS Universal
When learning to program you will often hear that Python is a good first language to learn. Pythonista for iOS is an amazing tool to help you do just that. I am currently going through the Codecademy Python course but was having troubles finding an environment to write code in once I left. It’s easy to find a great text editor but they didn’t do what I wanted. I wanted a place to write my code, tap a button and see the result. I didn’t want to have to keep opening the same file after a little bit of fiddling. So after hours of searching for a Mac app I almost gave up but then I remembered Pythonista. Pythonista is exactly what I wanted. I fiddle with my code, hit the play button and I see the results. It’s got a built in debugger and even a UI module with a User Interface Editor. It’s simply amazing.
My only complaint is there isn’t a Mac version.
Seriously if you are programming Python, and have an iPad, you will want this app. $6.99 is a steal for all it offers.
