    DroidEdit (free code editor)'s review

    Published: 2015-08-10, by .

    A minimalist code editor for your Android

    • Light and easy to use
    • Amount of supported languages (with syntax highlighter)
    • Cloud storage integration
    • It doesn't have a version control
    • There's no autocomplete option

    "Program on the go!"


    DroitEdit by André Restivo is a light and simple code editor for those that want to capture their ideas or debug code while they're not in front of a computer. When it comes to features, perhaps it's not the most thorough mobile IDE, but DroidEdit does have its strong points. Firstly, it supports a huge amount of programming languages (with syntax highligher). It allows you to run code in the browser or the console, it's got keyboard shortcuts, it lets you save and load Dropbox files and other cloud services, and finally, it has various text formatting options (auto tab, search and replace, go to a specific line, etc).


    You can't get lost with DroidEdit. The main screen is the code editor, from here you can make a new file and browse the tabs. The side menu and bottom bar keep all the options close to hand. It's strongest points are, however, the amount of languages it supports, the preview option and being able to run the code on the console or in the browser.


    We'd like to see a version control (GIT) and autocomplete options.

    Using different character encodings:

    You can make this behavior the default in the preference screen

    Long pressing the save document button allows you to save a document with a different filename


    DroidEdit is specially useful for new generation android tablets with external keyboards like the Asus Transformer.

    Try Hacker's Keyboard for a developer friendly virtual keyboard.

    You should try the ad supported DroidEdit Free before buying this app. The ad supported version has exactly the same functionality as the paid version except it doesn't have SFTP support, Dropbox support, Custom themes and root mode.
