Programmer Keyboard

Changing or writing code on Android devices is not that easy. The default Keyboard of Android devices is not made for developers, so, editing or writing codes using the default keyboard on Android is very uncomfortable.

Every developer wants to do work with ease, and when it comes to working on Android, it's challenging to work easily because we don't have the standard keys which we get on our Windows PC.

Using Programmer Keyboard app we can get a set of all keys which are available on Windows and not on Android, For example, Programmer Keyboard lets us use CTRL, ALT and other Keys.

Syntax Highlighted Code Editor

Developers use a lot of commands and tags in the language of coding. When it comes to editing that on Android it's frustrating. Because the commands and tags must be highlighted with different colors. So, that they can easily understand that what the code is and what it says.

Syntax Highlighted Code Editor is one such app which we can use to highlight the syntax of many programming languages like Python, Java, C, C++, CoffeeScript, Haskel, Clojure, and Groovy, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP.

So, Syntax Highlighted Code Editor is a must have app because it makes the work easy.

C++ Programming

This app not for advanced developers as this is just a guidebook for those who want to learn C++.

Mostly, C++ is taught in colleges to those students who want to be a Software Engineer.

C++ is an imperative language of Computer, but when it comes to understanding this language, it's tough.

But, C++ Programming app makes the work easy for students it has in-depth guides on the basic concepts of C++ which help the students to understand the C++ and work on it.

C4droid - C/C++ compiler & IDE

It's time to discuss a compiler that can compile programs on your smartphone.

C4droid is a compiler for Android.

It works like a normal compiler and compiles the source code into object code.

You can easily compile codes on your Android device using this app. The best thing I have found about this app is that you don't need to root your Android device.
