In Pictures: 10 Android apps developers will love

From full-blown IDEs to essential resource utilities, these Android apps bring powerful programming features to phones and tablets

Algoid -- programming language Algoid is, in Hollywood terms, Logo meets Android, complete with Turtle graphics. Don't be put off by the fractured English of the write-up in the Play store: Algoid is a for-real IDE with an interpreter, debugger, and scope explorer, as well as an editor with autocompletion and syntax highlighting. Algoid is primarily for educational use, but it isn't restricted to kids by any means. I can see it getting used in many educational programming settings, both formal and informal. The author has also released a desktop Java version of Algoid, and a Raspberry Pi version, although I haven't tested either of them.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
