    "Not exactly what I was expecting for this topic. The app is good for what it does but it is not what I wanted. I was looking for an app to help with codes and other languages, not with android app development. Not the best solution."

    "So this app is a pretty basic text editor for Android devices. And it works well enough, though some of the better features are behind a paywall. Fair enough, if you find an app useful you should pay for it. The document sharing feature is hugely convenient. I like it. "

    "Slack has been very useful for me and my team mates in terms of everyone being able to put idea's out there even from the comfort of their home that might help us out when building or debugging software. A lot of my team mates are very introverted and I feel as though Slack allows them to express their concerns and idea's freely which has been very beneficial for my team. "

    "TeamViewer for Remote Control is a great free app that allows you to remotely connect to other computers, tablets, or smartphones. It makes remote work painless and easy to operate and cuts down on the headaches trying to get remote access to work. It's an absolute must-have for those who do remote work. I absolutely recommend this app over the others."

    "I think the topic is a bit too bold. WiFi Analyzer does help software engineers keep connected to the internet, but I think software engineers require more of a better way to manage their files, and stuff like that. That being said, I think it is one of the top apps, but not the best app for software engineers. "
