Any thoughts on the app Pythonista?
What are your recommendations about the app, Pythonista? Apple Store: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/pythonista-3/id1085978097 Some reviewers say it is the best app ever, while at least one says it is out of date and not sufficiently maintained. If you have used it, in what ways did you found it useful, how useful is it, and in what cases would you recommend it? If you have used similar apps, how does Pythonista compare to them?

★«D.Connect_Zone» To clarify, my question is specifically about the app Pythonista, rather than Python. Furthermore, I seek quantifiable feedback.
No wanted to say it has inbuilt IDE which has python 3.6 .. python 2 i think will be outdated. And some parts is outdated i think too.(App is not getting update last update was of dec 2017) Yeah and my bad. My answer not quantifiable.
Personally, I love it. I'm only a casual coder so I can't speak for its deeper usage but it's far better than any of the free Python IDEs I've found on the App Store. It's very easy to write code on a phone - things like if you enter an open parenthesis "(" it will automatically put a closed one ")" after, but if you type a closed one, it doesn't give you another one, it puts the cursor outside the parentheses so you don't have to tap the screen to move outside the parentheses (I hope that makes sense). You can scroll along a line by dragging along the top of the keyboard too. Help with debugging too. Codes instantly saved to iCloud. Everything I've found about it os better but I've not tried any other paid-for ones and it is quite steep too. Hope that helps.
Pyto appears to be a comparable app: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/pyto-python-3-7/id1436650069 A reviewer notes that Pyto has the pandas module while Pythonista does not. It also appears to be regularly maintained. Like in the original post above for Pythonista, I would like to know anyone’s experience or recommendations with Pyto.
