The easiest way to run Python on your Android

Pipal Mobile Lab's QPython is a must-have app for Python programmers. It's an all-in-one app which brings to your Android device the Python interpreter (console), a built-in text editor (QEdit), a preset folder to save your scripts and many useful python libraries.

Need to review your code? You can do it right from the app. Need to test a few lines from the Python Interpreter? Run the console and get it done. The latter even include some control and function keys so you can boost your coding speed while on-the-go. Despite it comes with lot of packages installed (check them from the Package Index), you can install more using QPypi or pip (from console).

QPython is still in beta, which means that you cannot still have same versatility as in desktop. However, QPython is an excellent solution for those who always need coding tools at hand's reach but cannot always have access to a desktop platform. Highly recommended.

    Thanks to this app I'm able to practice my python skills and make small but useful applications on the fly. It's especially useful on my way to work via train :) because that's usually when most of my inspiration happens :)

    I already couldn't run code without having to use a glitch in your console where it would return to a regular command line. It appears as though you have fixed that glitch. Totally useless to me at this point...come on guys. it's not rocket science, it's computer science :D

    Useful, although script shortcuts have stopped working (possibly lollipop related)
