Abstract. Currently, the ability to create various programs has become particularly relevant. The example of this trend is the programs created for smartphones. In addition, the smartphone is becoming one of the tools for work and is increasingly used in many activities, such as work activities, entertainment, education, and IoT. As a result, there is an increasing need for modern, versatile, and efficient tools for creating such types of programs. Also, development of such programs requires special programming skills. According to these facts we can see that such situation evolves a big request for specialists in this field of activity. One possible solution to this problem is the use of alternative development tools that do not require deep programming knowledge or skills, such as visual programming tools. These tools have the potential to create a new generation of programmers who do not need to be experts in low-level programming. And these tools need to be properly selected based on the requirements of the program. This article aims to provide a systematic approach to evaluating the possibilities of any programming environment software for learning and development purposes.
