    My Android tablet has been gathering dust for a while now, so this collection of apps should give me a reason to use it again. The various code editors have some really impressive features; I will definitely have a go with TouchQuode and SilverEdit. I recommend the Adobe Shadow app for people who want to inspect and debug their sites on an android device.
