About this app

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.

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!

This app is a super app especially if you don't like Windows i do everything on android either my phone or tablet. IT IS GREAT FOR the Arduino. I just wish I could change the background and foreground colors. This app would be even better if I could find how to use it with out trial and error. Does this app support the ESP8266 LINE OF devices? UPDATE: V5.0.0 I AM looking forward to working with the esp8266. The author and his group has turned out a very useful product. But I'm looking for pro.

Hi, thanks for your feedback. You can choose a theme in app settings to change the colors. ESP8266 support to be released soon.

Hard to use. I really tried to use this app as replacement. I have samsung dex, which gives me a very good screen size to work and mobility but it keeps crashing. also when I try to upload from phone alone, I need to choose USB output, but if I choose wrong, the app wont allow me to choose again, unless I close and open again, and the usb output name changes everytime. these errors make the app impossible the use. Another thing, the libraries are very different of the PC version.
