You do not say whether network access is to be considered. Accessing
Python3 in Jupyter does enhance the experience. Paid accounts on
www.pythonanywhere.com offer that, I am sure that there are others. I
have no direct affiliation with them but they have provided good free
service hosting my Flask web app.

I have not tried it but the pydroid3 app provides Jupyter.


Termux is another powerful route to outside servers. I gather that you
can run Python3 / Jupyter on it locally too.
