About this app

Write with code complete and libraries, compile, upload Arduino or ESP8266/ESP32 sketches over USB or WiFi and monitor your board right from your Android device with ArduinoDroid. No internet connection, no cloud service account is required.

The app takes about 500Mb in internal storage as it contains IDE, compiler and uploader for AVR and ESP8266/ESP32. Make sure you have enough free space and it can't be currently installed on sd card because of Android security policy.

This would be great if it worked. I get errors for every line. When I try to load one sketch it loads ALL sketches and then compiles all of them together, so everything is an error. I emailed the developer, but no response. I hope he responds to this. I very much would like this to work. Could really use a user guide or WiKi for this. Update. I played with the app more and solved some of my issues. It worked and I can now recommend this app.

This applies only for a Galaxy Tab 3 with Android version9. Much better look features than the linux version on my desktop that works. The Examples often crash when opening. Seems buggy so I avoid using it. Not sure if its Settings or the hardware/OS so I can't consider buying if the free version doesn't work. Once there is a fix there knowing the purchase price would be great:).

Installed it. Typed up about 20 lines of code. Set my phone down and the screen rotated. When I picked it back up, screen rotated back to a blank screen. Uninstalled it. I do a decent job of writing code. I don't need the practice of rewriting it just because someone can't figure out how to program an app so it doesn't wipe everything when the screen rotates. And he wants paid to remove the ads? Try removing the bugs first!
