I first came across visual studio when i was in search of a program that would allow me to create application for android and mac and also programs for windows. When i later installed visual studio, i was met by a simple to use interface that could be customized to anyone's liking.

What visual studio offers is a simple way to create things and also an even easier way to code anything. To toggle between the coding and the app form you just double click or navigate using some buttons at the top. Like in adobe Dreamweaver, visual studio also gives you the ability to add buttons, text bars ,hyperlinks and anything else you would like by just clicking on the task bar and navigating to any option you would like. 100% no coding needed there, but if you would like the button to become an action maker, you need to do some coding.

The coding part is not that hard since, the program has an auto fill property that completes a word for you. This is great since the probability of you making a mistake is lowered, the feature also underlines words or codes that bring no meaning or won't impact anything.

There is also a debugging option, that also acts as a beta user or tester. It actually shows you how the app will look and behave when fully completed.

In visual 2015, the ability to directly create android app is fully integrated but in 2013 you have to download addon like xamarin to complement visual studio.

But the fact of the matter is that visual studio has the ability to make things happened that you never thought of.


  • Visual has its own programming language
  • Updates always bring new features
  • The program is easy to use


  • Best things are always for sale
