  1. Yep, thats what I do, I made a whole website on my phone but Coding on phone isn’t the best experience😑.

    1. You should try buy a keyboard that can connect to your phone… it is easier to type but the screen is too small for me 🙂

    Wow it’s infinix UI ✌️
    Thank you for this amazing podcast 😊. Now I’m going to try this!

  3. My answer was yes back in 2008. On a J2ME device. I used mini commander, that allowed good text editing, no syntax highlighting etc, but did the job. I used html & css back then. It was J2ME, s60v2, s60v5. Was around 2008 – 2013.

      Awesome story. Thank you for sharing. I personally have been fascinated with those keypad symbina running devices…. It was amazing how much they could do with so little resources yet so well.

    2. Same. You remind me coding on my old N70. I used to write bat scripts for windows. Xplore by lonely cat games is the finest thing. I still use xplore on my android.

  4. Amazing video guys. This gives me a flashback to the times when I used to learn how to code on my android tablet 🤩.
    Pro tip: invest in an OTG cable and a keyboard. This will make your life much easier. Using a virtual keyboard on a tablet/smartphone is a bit frustrating to code.

  5. Nice video. I’ve been looking for a mobile development guide for years and finally this is it.

    1. this is not meant to be used on a phone, but a tablet such as Galaxy Tab so you can attach a keyboard and use it as a computer

      @pieTone bro which app do you use to code on phone… Is it the same app with this tutor guy?

  6. I have a code editor app installed on my phone that allows me to run code in pretty much every coding language I want that’s been very helpful for me to be able to code and build using just my phone I don’t know how to add a screen shot of it but if I can figure it out I’ll be happy to share a screenshot of the app I use

    1. @Krish Loren D. Sinevasan
      Works just fine… 💯💯

      At least for Html and beginner CSS.. (thats how far I’ve gone with it)

  7. I not only learned coding on my phone I also earned my first $600 on a phone Freelancing only then I was able to afford a PC and now this YouTube channel of mine have 800+ subscribers
    Keep hustling soldiers 💪

  8. YES, I am developing a html5 game on my 7.5 yrs old mobile ,made all the graphics, sound effects and coding, will soon upload on a website.

  9. 3 years ago I coded on my phone when I had no electricity. It teaches you dedication and to use ressources well when you have access to more.

    1. @Piyush Sinha I don’t mind as your question made sense. By the grace of God I am in a way better position now but my income does not come from software development yet. I am working towards it still. I quit my job already and the next one I plan to take will be a developer position. I do freelancing in other fields but my free time is used to code, pass certifications, enhance my skills and apply to job offers.

      @Piyush Sinha he may be using power bank… Charging the power bank anywhere 🤷

    3. John Precious

      @Sci-tech you shouldn’t do that except you want to code on Android forever

    Coding on phone is the last resort but can be worked with for the time being through dedication.

  11. I personally use a self hosted Linux server on an old computer and open SSH (juice SSH Android app) so I can use the full power and ability of Linux OS to program in any language not to mention hosting my own web page.

  12. I used to do this for my Programming 101 course when in a hurry. It was awful but helped do simple I/O exercises without bringing my laptop to class

  13. Reminds me of 12yo me coding on my nokia N70 Java + Symbian s60 v2. I used to have xplore file manager by lonely cat games. Bat scripts, c# .net framework code. Dedication was real. I used to write code by reading saved pages on opera mini and run them on my dad’s PC.

    I still code on my phone (Android) now. I now use Acode and nvim (termux). But most of it happens on my 8yo laptop now. 🙂

  14. Sailfish OS is another option. I sometimes play around with Python code on my Sailfish OS powered Sony Xperia. Your pretty much get a full-fledged Linux terminal to do what you want with Sailfish OS. In the past I had installed the ARM version of the JVM and used to play around with languages like Javascript (Rhino & Nashorn), Jython, Groovy and of course Java. Now days its just Python and some shell scripts 🙂
