[ FAQ ]
A: Why can't I use the SMS API of SL4A
Q: Because Google Play and some app stores have strict requirements on the permissions of apps, in QPython 3x, we use x to distinguish branches with different permissions or appstores. For example, L means LIMITED and S means SENSITIVE.
Sometimes you cannot use the corresponding SL4A APIs because the version you installed does not have the corresponding permissions, so you can consider replace what you have installed with the right one.

You can find other branches here:

Easily the best python running app out there, esp with the normal console that you'd have on a computer and being able to access external text files within code. I was able to make my own spanish quizzing software! however there's something wrong with the saving as sometimes I'll lose my work which is heartbreaking. I think it has something to do with the "exiting - would you like to save first" window because it seems okay when I hit the save button at the bottom.

Its a solid IDE. The shell itself is alright. I'd like to have the option to change the font, much like how you can change the font in the editor (Gotta get that monospace). The editor is alright too. The find and replace function is lacking though. Its definitely not perfect, but its Python on Android. What do you expect? It allows me to waste time, and I appreciate that.

This app has been extremely helpful. Being able to test things out on the fly and creating small scripts from my phone has helped me out immensely. A great tool for students like myself and I'm sure seasoned developers will find this helpful as well. There are some issues but others have pointed it out already. Waiting for an update to see if allot of the issues I was having is addressed. Then 5 stars. Thanks
