A powerful desktop or laptop can either be used as a programmer’s workshop. However, as the world enters the world of smartgadgets, everything’s going to be handy-dandy portable. That being said, programmers need to accustom themselves to the future partners of programming tools, which are apps that are specifically made for coding.
The adage, “there’s an app for everything” isn’t really an exaggeration. There are apps for games, programming tools, and even for people who want to search for a music title just by singing out the melody to their smartphones. Data site Statista wrote that the global mobile app revenues amounted to $26.68 million in 2013, and are expected to grow to $45.37 million by 2015. The latter data on mobile app revenues is quite accurate, given that Entertainment hub Spin Genie’s operating arm Gaming Realms revealed that the online gaming market is expected to be worth around $40 billion by next year. By 2017, the world can expect mobile app revenues to almost double at $76.52 million. If these sales figures don’t say that the future of computing is with portable gadgets, I don’t know what else will.
Here are three, powerful apps for the programmers out there.
If you have experience programming on android devices, you’re going to love the Programmer Keyboard. It’s a free app that brings to programmers a full keyboard that is equipped with code completion. The app is very stable, and even includes ctrl, alt, and arrow keys that programmers direly need when writing codes.
Developer’s Tool Kit
The Developer’s Tool Kit is a great app for either when you’re writing a code for a program or a website. Its built-in calculator allows developers to see if their code works, or if it’s missing a line. The app also provides programmers the UTF-8 character code or Unicode for any symbol they want.
Pocket Cloud is handy app that lets programmers run programs remotely from their Windows or Mac computers. The app’s paid version supports VMWare, advanced RDP features, and connections to several computers at once. Pocket Cloud works amazing even on data Internet connection.
