Really impressive
Update: I'm knocking this down a star after using it a bit. It definitely could use some more work to make it less tedious to use. The extra keyboard takes too much space--I don't need to see the numbers all the time. There's no quick way to move a whole line. And auto complete needs to be more aggressive: if the word is anywhere in the file, offer it as a choice. --- Not sure how much use I can really get out of this, but it's still really impressive. You get a solid code editor, very fast access to Python docs (worth a few bucks right there), plus custom Python modules optimized for for creating touch based games. The included examples are great showcases for what you can do with very little code and are fun (if simple) in their own right. My kids love the cute tile memory game. The app itself feels very polished for its first release. It elegantly switches between the editor and console, and looks beautiful with several top-rate font and color choices.

Wow. Fantastic. Just Get It.
I write Python and C# professionally. This is an amazing app for iPad. I have been looking for dev apps for a long time; I have Textastic, Python for iOS, etc - this beats them all hands down. This is not as good as a true desktop IDE, but it is good enough that writing real code on iPad is now a feasible and enjoyable experience. Just get it. Some suggestions for devs: - Option for tabs to spaces - Backup to Dropbox or iCloud - Import external libraries somehow (NumPy, etc) - Organize library into folder hierarchy - Select multiple lines and (un)indent

Python beginners & veteran programmers. This is the one to get!!
Powerful editor and Python-centric keyboard make this THE python app for iOS. The developer is a great guy who is quick to respond to any questions you may have. If you are just learning Python or are a programming veteran just looking for a mobile solution, Pythonista is the app you are looking for.

Great app
Definitely has the potential to be the premier python coding/experimenting app for the iPad. Compares favorably to Textastic and beats Koder hands down. I would recommend this app to Python students and experienced python programmers looking for a mobile option.

This is the first app I have reviewed because it is the first one that has blown me away quite like this one. Very impressive. Kudos to the developers. I don't mean to throw stones but I started with Python for iOS. These two apps aren't even in the same league. If you have to make a choice, get this one.

Polished and thought-out
This is the best Python app out there, bar none. Great to see this level of detail brought to a coding app--the rest tend to be scrappy free-time projects.
