User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
I usually don’t write reviews, but I felt compelled to for this gem of an app. I regularly program on the side for fun and automation. I’ve used Pythonista to automate tasks on my phone, prototype programs for my Windows and Linux computers, and built silly games to play for fun. I’ve used Python at work to drastically speed up our workflows by several hours, which has been a life saver and even garnered me a raise. Not only was Pythonista an indispensable tool for prototyping those programs, but it has allowed me the opportunity to improve my skills on the go. There are some limitations I wish didn’t exist, but this is because of Apple, not the developers. The developers have gone above and beyond to implement extra libraries and integrate Pythonista with iOS. If you’re looking for a good iOS Python app or want to learn Python on the go, I highly recommend this app!
This is coming from someone who has been using a MacBook Pro for programming as a main source, and have been using PyCharm previously and also Sublime Text 3 as a text editor. I didn't have too high of hopes for an IDE for mobile (iPad and iPhone) but I clearly changed my opinion. This was the best $10 I have ever spent in my life. It is an amazing tool with so many good features, and a very nice user interface for professional users and even people who are just starting out or hobbyists. I would recommend this application to any person I know, and I would get them to start programming on Pythonista. The lovely thing about this is that you can take it literally everywhere, now that iPhones are in almost every pocket these days, and I think people should take advantage of it and get this app. I <3 the creators of Pythonista!!!
Truly a remarkable app with amazing capabilities! As a part-time mobile app developer, full time tinkerer, I write a lot of mobile apps for myself. This used to require a paid developer account and competency in various languages and supporting tools. For myself, most of this madness has been replaced with Pythonista programs. Amongst many features, you get a theme-able editor with syntax highlighting, auto-complete and a built-in debugger, a REPL, and a UI builder. Add the community-developed shell, StaSh, and you get a basic terminal with pip to pull dependencies for your programs. With action sheet support it is trivial to create programs that integrate seamlessly with other iOS apps. Works great with repository management apps like Working Copy.
Note: The low rating is to get the developer’s attention, and send a red flag to others who might by the app and be disappointed by its current state. Pythonista could potentially be the most useful, powerful app available for developers from the App Store. That’s not an exaggeration, and the potential also increases dramatically when you consider what could be done with Shortcuts integration. Overall, the app is incredibly made and very well integrated with iOS and it’s UI heuristics. At least... it *was,* and that’s the issue. The developer is AWOL, and we haven’t seen an update since the beginning of 2018, not has there been any activity on his GitHub issue tracker. Major opportunities for functional improvement, and minor bugs are popping up, due to the lack of adoption of the most recent iOS SDK’s features and API changes. This is a situation that will only get worse over time.
This app seems nice, but I instantly found a giant problem: if you run a new iPad Pro in landscape mode using an Apple keyboard (or probably any keyboard — but I haven’t tried others yet), the “shortcuts” bar completely blocks the Console prompt and you can’t see a single thing you’re typing. This can be fixed by disabling “shortcuts” in iOS Settings, but that’s ridiculous — and prevents password managers from offering to populate password fields, which is a dealbreaker. I want my $9.99 back but “App Support” on iTunes Store just links to a page that offers “Community Forums” or the ability to tweet the author (I don’t tweet). Community Forums indicate this has been a known bug since autumn 2018 with no fix yet after almost a year. Is this app abandonware? Huge bummer.
Pythonista is a complete scripting environment for Python, running directly on your iPad or iPhone. It includes support for both Python 3.6 and 2.7, so you can use all the language improvements in Python 3, while still
having 2.7 available for backwards compatibility.
In true Python fashion, batteries are included – from popular third-party modules like numpy, matplotlib, requests, and many more, to modules that are tailor-made for iOS. You can write scripts that access motion sensor data, your photo library, contacts, reminders, the iOS clipboard, and much more.
You can also use Pythonista to build interactive multi-touch experiences, custom user interfaces, animations, and 2D games.
