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

Frink Programming Language Frink is a practical calculating tool and programming language designed to make physical calculations simple, by tracking units of measure through all calculations, and allowing you to mix units of measure transparently. It also contains a large data file of physical quantities, freeing you from having to look them up. The free Android Frink app is a full port of Frink with added support for Android-specific functionality, such as drawing graphics (see slide), using sensors, reading the GPS, and performing text-to-speech and speech recognition. You can also run Frink on your computer, as long as you have Java installed and allow self-signed Java to run. You can use Frink as a simple units converter or a full-blown programming environment.

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.
