What do you use pythonista for?

I'm using it for learning python and simple data processing.
I'm curious about how other people are using it, and maybe get some ideas for new projects!

Pythonista is also suitable for making simple 2D games, animations, and apps with ui. But there are several modules that are personal to Pythonista, there is a reference to them in the section "Pythonista modules". You can access it by tapping the question mark in the console.
Good luck with future concepts!

I used Pythonista to learn programming myself. So far I have used it for:
- Data processing
- Building personal apps
- Teaching programming
- Learning UI and UX design
I plan on exploring game development also. It is absolutely the best way to learn programming and what goes into making an app.

I'm using it for small projects, a playground to test learn more about python for larger project and also just to pass the time.
I use python ,and therefore pythonista, to solve simple math or CS problems I watch on YouTube or read on blogs for fun.
In short , for all sorts of goals except large complicated problems. Then i like a proper keyboard and laptop/desktop.

I have a long-term natural language processing project that I've been working on for a while. Pythonista let me continue to work on it while I was on a month long cycle tour over the summer. (People thought I was mad when I pulled an iPad mini and a full-sized USB keyboard out of my luggage at the campsites, but it was much better than trying to transport even a netbook without damaging something.)
Until recently I was also using it for small classroom tasks (as a teacher), but then Apple went and broke it on me -- the latest update of iOS 9 messed up the text-to-speech interface, and I was using high quality voices to provide listening material for language classes. I wrapped the whole thing up in a keyboard controlled interface to play the whole thing, step through line by line, repeat lines, slow down/speed up etc. I was able to produce anything I wanted, tune it to the class in question, and walk around with a Bluetooth keyboard controlling it from everywhere in the class.
But iOS 9 won't get any more bug fixes (except serious security flaws) so now my most important use for the iPad mini (not iOS 10 compatible) is gone.
Is there a decent Pythonista-like app for Android? I'm not sure I want to buy Apple again.

I use Pythonista, primarily to protype creative animations. Actually, I find that much more pleasant and productive than the Windows environment. The resulting code runs on both platforms by including some platform specific code (particularly PyGame and calls to ffmpeg).

I use it the same as another would do the cryptic crossword puzzles. A challenging hobby. One day, I would like to create something real for my friends that have small businesses, like a menu system or hotel booking system.
But I really love using Pythonista, no killer hardware could be released that I would buy/switch to if couldn't run Pythonista on it.
