REQUIREMENTS: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Requires iOS 3.1 or later
Python Docs is an entirely offline version of the complete Python documentation (version 2.6.6).
It includes among other things:
* The Python Tutorial
* Using Python
* The Python Language Reference
* The Python Standard Library
* Python/C API Reference Manual
* Glossary, Global Module Index (quick access to all modules) and General Index (all functions, classes, terms).
* Much more
It also comes with an browsable quick-jump index to help you to jump to the specific parts of the documentation you need.
The whole documentation is searchable, just type your query in the search field, then press search. If you don't press search, the application will instead highlight the occurrences of your search string on the current page (local pages only).
EXTERNAL LINKS AND EMAIL
External links give you the option of opening in the app itself, or to use Safari.
Every page (both local and external) can be opened in Safari or emailed from within the app, just use the action button in the lower left corner of the screen.
On the bottom of the home page, there are a couple of external links that are useful. Consider bookmarking them if you use them often.
The application also supports:
* Tabs - up to 9 tabs (Safari-like)
* Bookmarks (both local and external)
When closing and re-opening the app, it will load the previously loaded page, including the current scroll location, since some pages in the documentation can be rather large.
The documentation ships compressed in order to save bandwidth, and will be uncompressed the first time the app is launched on your device. This will only happen on the first launch.
To answer a frequently asked question: The reason this app is rated 17+ is that in addition to the complete offline documentation it also allows you to use online resources if you wish, which is considered "unfiltered access to the Internet" since it does not inherit the general parental control settings from the Safari settings.
This app is based on the Sphinx Documentation of Python.
