About this app

Pydroid 3 is the most easy to use and powerful educational Python 3 IDE for Android.

- Offline Python 3 interpreter: no Internet is required to run Python programs.
- Pip package manager and a custom repository for prebuilt wheel packages for enhanced scientific libraries, such as numpy, scipy, matplotlib, scikit-learn and jupyter.
- OpenCV is now available (on devices with Camera2 API support). *
- TensorFlow and PyTorch are also available. *
- Examples available out-of-the-box for quicker learning.
- Complete Tkinter support for GUI.
- Full-featured Terminal Emulator, with a readline support (available in pip).
- Built-in C, C++ and even Fortran compiler designed specially for Pydroid 3. It lets Pydroid 3 build any library from pip, even if it is using native code. You can also build & install dependencies from a command line.
- Cython support.
- PDB debugger with breakpoints and watches.
- Kivy graphical library with a shiny new SDL2 backend.
- PySide6 support available in Quick Install repository along with matplotlib PySide6 support with no extra code required.
- Matplotlib Kivy support available in Quick Install repository.
- pygame 2 support.

Editor features:
- Code prediction, auto indentation and real time code analysis just like in any real IDE. *
- Extended keyboard bar with all symbols you need to program in Python.
- Syntax highlighting & themes.
- Tabs.
- Enhanced code navigation with interactive assignment/definition gotos.
- One click share on Pastebin.

* Features marked by asterisk are available in Premium version only.

Quick manual.
Pydroid 3 requires at least 250MB free internal memory. 300MB+ is recommended. More if you are using heavy libraries such as scipy.
To run debug place breakpoint(s) clicking on the line number.
Kivy is detected with “import kivy”, “from kivy“ or "#Pydroid run kivy”.
PySide6 is detected with “import PySide6”, “from PySide6“ or "#Pydroid run qt”.
The same for sdl2, tkinter and pygame.
There is a special mode "#Pydroid run terminal" to ensure your program runs in terminal mode (this is useful with matplotlib that automatically runs in GUI mode)

Why are some libraries premium-only?
These libraries were extremely hard to port, so we had to ask another developer to do that. Under agreement, his forks of these libraries are provided to the premium users only. If you would like to develop free forks of these libraries - contact us.

Take a part in development of Pydroid 3 by reporting bugs or providing feature requests to us. We appreciate that.

As Pydroid 3 main goal is to help user learn Python 3 programming language, our first priority is porting scientific libraries (so system-related libraries are ported only when they are used as dependencies of some other educational package).

Legal information.
Some binaries in Pydroid 3 APK are licensed under (L)GPL, email us for the source code.
GPL pure Python libraries bundled with Pydroid 3 are considered to be coming in the source code form already.
Pydroid 3 doesn’t bundle any GPL-licensed native modules to avoid automatic import of them. The famous example of such library is GNU readline, that can be installed using pip.
Samples available in the application are free for educational usage with one exception: they, or their derivative works, cannot be used in any competing products (in any way). If you are unsure, whether your app is affected by this restriction, always ask for a permission via email.

The IDE works very well for the most part. The only issue I am running into is trying to bind an ip and port to a server socket, but this might be an issue being on Android vs windows. My only real complaint is the ads playing after running code. This gets annoying fast, especially when just running to debug. If premium wasn't so expensive, I would definitely consider getting it, but not for 20usd.

CRITICAL bug! Usually works well, but app somehow holds on to old stale data and sometimes reverts back to bad state. I made many code changes, frequantly saving and re-running... today I open app and changed a different file and tested until pleased, then went back to the file I worked on before and found the code had reverted to an old state missing most of yesterday's work, and maybe previous day(s) too. Used app happily for weeks, but this is unacceptable. Abandoning this for now, so sad.

This app is amazingly great for working on code on the phone! However, two issues: one is the jumping around mentioned in other reviews... it will constantly jump around, making you write code in wrong places or continously scroll back to place. The other, it freezes and closes randomly and I lose all my work. I've tried clearing cache, didn't work. Just tried reinst all, will see if that works. I will still use, because it's the best I've come across for android. Thank you:)
