The basic programming application that anybody should use is developed by Microsoft. With Microsoft Visual Studio 2013, you can start using this Integrated Development Environment for all your programming works. Although its size is too heavy, some more of 10GB on my computer, the tools it includes worth it. I’ve never seen an IDE so intuitive and helpful in my life. As an amateur programmer, wasting just some couple hours from time to time programming, I find this software really useful, with an attractive interface and a good variety.

The good point about this IDE is that it is completely updated, so the latest innovations are included. You can create your code for web; edit C++ and other possibilities such as debugging code with connected JavaScript apps. I really like this software since I can create apps for Windows Phone and Android immediately, thanks to the tools and functions included by default in the application. Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 works really fast, helping me with the autocompleting tool which can guess the next line code. This way I can work faster and lightly. Furthermore, the online functions included as well as the support made this application perfect for both beginners and advanced users.


  • Easy tools and functions for creating your code
  • Intuitive workflow and autocomplete option
  • A lot of new features to discover


  • It is heavy on computer’s resources
