iPad pro Programming?

Acceptive
 Share

Go to solution Solved by TheStyne,

While there are apps, I actually can't recommend an iPad Pro for a use like this. 

 

It's great in theory, but I have found in my experience that a laptop for a similar amount of money is a way better deal than the iPad. The iPad is basically just a big phone, so anything you do on the iPad you can already do on your phone. The keyboards for it are generally pretty bad, too. 

 

Anyway, if that didn't dissuade you, check out this list for some coding apps for iPad.

So I am considering getting the new iPad pro that was just revealed as I need an upgrade from my Galaxy Tab s2.  Anyways To help justify the price I want to do as much as possible on it.  I would love to use it to program on.  Does anyone know if there are apps I can use to program?  I want to do languages such as c, java, c++, python etc.

Or you could get a two in one like the 9575 or Spectre X360 if youre going to spend that much.

Ehh I'm kinda looking to get an iPad.  I want something that will last 5-6 years.  Also I really want a tablet and I'm done with Windows.

That might be the worst use for an iPad pro. Or even an iPad in general. 

You could get a 2 in 1 and use linux or even Mac OS  (but that discussion is forbidden)

Consider a Mac? The iPad can code, but I don't think it would give a great experience.

Thank you!  Coda looks pretty cool.

It's currently not possible to develop apps or programs on a mobile tablet.

 

You might be able to write some code but you won't be able to test it or compile it.

 

Your best bet would be just keeping the Tab S2 and buying a laptop.

Judge a product on its own merits AND the company that made it.

My tab s2 is crapping itself and i need a new tablet, also i already have a laptop to code on.  I'm trying to retire it though and only use an ipad for all mobile stuff.  Also doesn't coda have a compiler?

?

 

Edit: Because of the rules of Apps on the Apple App Store, it's not possible for applications to compile binaries on the device.
