    "I'm a programmer and needed a code editor. I tried Syntax Highlighted Code Editor and it works great for me and my needs. I love being able to create my own website on my phone. I use the app on my Samsung Galaxy 7 and have no issues using it. It doesn't crash or have any bugs, which is great. I love all the features and the fact that it's easy to use. So, if you want to edit your code on the go, this might be the app for you."

    "nice an lite Need quick access to copy/paste and this keyboard fits that niche perfectly and having a undo/redo buttons is a bonus. But I'm less impressed with this now. Serious privacy concerns upon new install. Frequently crashing."

    "Udacity is an excellent way to learn coding, for beginners and for those with a more advanced background alike. In fact, the collaborative nature of the platform makes it so that these two groups can greatly benefit from one another. I'm a novice programmer, and this provides a bunch of tools for me to improve my skills."

    "For those of us who spend more time on our phone rather than our laptop, this is a great tool. I like how I can learn more about scripting, and actually be productive when I have downtime during travel, or anytime. Being able to work offline and even share source with others is a big plus."
