    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.

    Uninstalled right after installing it, the banner ad to upgrade to pro is very distracting, wouldn't of minded if it was a pop up that you could close, but rather they opted to put it in the editor window without a close box. ?

    Good app, but doesn't have the ability to request that the user grant it permission to write to the external SD card. This ability is needed in order that files may be saved by the secure and reliable method of saving to the external storage, instead of having to use internal storage (unreliable -- when the device fails, the contents of the storage are lost) or cloud storage (unreliable -- wifi isn't always available -- and insecure, for reasons which should be obvious). When is this problem going to be addressed? Yes, I know I could just root the device, but this isn't feasible if you want to use certain other apps, such as Android Pay.
