Better than Pythonista!

Just started using this app and so far it's great! Intuitive interface, allows saving and reloading of your own scripts and functions, nice big interpreter screen. It is actually two interpreters, one without an editor( where you can only save the session and then reset the interpreter), and another where you can edit, save, resave, and run previous scripts,functions,etc.. The more I use it the more I like it!

Not Accessible

I am a blind programmer and use the voiceover feature to navigate my iPhone. I was very excited to have come across such a convenient app--I can work on my Python projects away from my computer! Unfortunately, I quickly found that, like so many other iPhone applications, Python for iOS is inaccessible (i.e., unusable) to blind users. I cannot get the interpreter to work properly, and it seems that the screen reader isn't picking up several controls/menus. I would love to see this app become more accessible to disabled users. Until then, though, 1/5 stars.

Good Foundation

The app is a really great start, and I love the interactive interpreter, but the editor is absolutely unusable.
Once a script has surpassed 30 or 40 lines, I can't touch the screen lest I risk causing it to crash. Obviously this makes writing a script of any substance phenomenally difficult.
As I said, the interpreter is still really useful, and its better than any other python app I've looked at, but the app as a whole needs some huge stability improvements.
