Beyond the outstanding features of the editor, this software is excellent on two fronts:

1) It integrated with Autodesk Maya perfectly, on the very first try, no issues what-so-ever.
2) The tech support is phenomenal.

I mostly use the software to develop python helper scripts for Maya and Nuke, and while the interface is touch on the ugly side, the functionality of WingIDE is far better than any other option I have tried (Notepad++, Pycharm, and Sublime). I also use Eclipse for Python/C/C++ dev at work, and god how I wish it had the ease of use that WingIDE does. Eclipse has a lot of setup, where WingIDE just works.

What put me over the top to fully recommend this software is the tech support. They are phenomenal. I had a problem with the software not finding a license after the most recent update on steam, I sent an email to thier tech support and got a response almost immediately. They solved my issue and they were a joy to deal with. This is the best cutomer support experience I have had from anyone ever.

+ Very powerful, fully featured python IDE.
+ Extremetly easy to setup and integrate with various 3D software packages.
+ Probably the best customer support on the planet.

- The interface is need of a facelift (it's a little on the ugly side).

I really like this IDE so far. I'm pretty new to Python and was previously just using sublime text and notepad++. I was looking for an IDE and checked out the major ones, including pycharm. Pycharm also seems to be a great package, but Wing does everything I need, has a very intuitive layout, and--best of all--is on Steam. That means I can pay once and download and install it on all of my machines. I love multi-platform, multi-install, single-user licenses. This is the future. I recently decided to install zbrush (which I have licensed and installed in Windows) on my Mac partition, and they wanted me to buy a whole separate mac license. I was reminded that Steam and the Apple app store have totally spoiled me when it comes to my expectations around software licensing. Bring on the easy installs and easy updates. Kudos to Wing for releasing on Steam, and let's hope other dev tools follow suit!

Easy to use, good debugging options and nice UI, direct Python Reference, good project managment. Everything that you can wish your python IDE has to have! :)

Advanced features such as first-rate debugger, code intelligence. Wingide's debugger is super powerful and allows to set breadpoints, step through code, unspect data, debug remotely, and debug django templates. It has support for matplotlib where the plots are updated automatically.

Wing IDE 5 is my most favorite coding software of all of them that I have used! Coding in Python has never been easier. There are so many tools such as indentation, debugging, autofill, and error report. You can also customize the theme and layout of your code to suit your comfort. Also, all of the things you had open before(if you have used Python before) are all in one window! Your code(multiple codes in tabs), your folder of codes and images, Python SHELL, debuggin window, error report, module display and more. I highly recommend that you buy this software ONLY if you are serious about developing games and software with Python. If not, stick to IDLE or whatever you have. Rating: 10/10
