very cool

After download it and use it a while ,it is a very good app ,maybe It can not do something like the desktop terminal , but it makes the ipad more like a real pc rather than a big iphone .If the develop can continue his development Constantly .In my opinion ,one day Apple may make a real terminal for ipad os,And this app may be a good alternative that time

Pretty cute little app

I’m just getting my feet wet, so I know a lot more is possible. I’d consider this indispensable for anybody who wants to play with Python locally on the run. In the metro I might have insecure servers, or no internet connection at all. Besides, who works on a phone and wants it to be useless without an internet connection? This little app has tremendous potential: The more users it could get, the better it could be. Excuse me, but I envision an army of user-developers, contributing to an environment that is like a hand-held (fully-functional) computer. I’d love that.

Very useful

This app is the only way that you can use shell commands on files that are on your iPad. But it's not good for being a development environment; I would recommend PythonAnywhere (it's a website, not an app) for that.
