Learn C/C from your phone.


The CppDroid app lets you learn how to code right from your phone. It helps you complete C/C codes and gives your real time diagnostics. The app lets you work offline and features detailed examples, tutorials, and learning guides. It's great for beginners and moderately experienced.


An app for anyone wanting to learning coding, it gives you samples and helps you learn to complete codes.


The interface doesn't always match up well.

Developer's original description available here
CppDroid is simple C/C++ IDE focused on learning programming languages and libraries.

* code complete *
* real-time diagnostics (warnings and errors) and fixes *
* file and tutorial navigator (variables, methods, etc)
* static analysis *
* smart syntax highlighting
* portrait/landscape UI
* auto indentation and auto pairing (configurable)
* configurable code syntax highlighting (themes) *
* compile C/C++ code (no root required)
* works offline (built-in compiler, no internet connection required)
* great C/C++ code examples included *
* detailed C++ tutorial and learn guide included *
* add-ons manager and auto updates
* Dropbox support *

On first launch CppDroid extracts SDK (about 150Mb) and downloads and extracts examples and tutorials, so about 190Mb of internal storage space is required. It can't be moved to sd card because of android security.

Start learning C and C++ by examples (menu / Project / Examples) or tutorials (menu / Project / Tutorials).

    Does not support most features of advanced keyboards such as Hacker's Keyboard. The editor does not allow for any kind of workflow edits. I'd have a better experience running nano through SSH.

    Really good app. Does what it says. The Dropbox support is useful. But I can't seem to figure out how to create my own .h files within the app and include it in projects. Is this possible?

    The app functions properly, but on Android L developer Preview gives the error "error: Only Position Independent Executables (PIE) are supported" when attempting to compile a project. I hope this gives you the information you need to fix functionality.
