Developer's Description

It's kind of like the Garage Band of coding. " - Wired. "Codea for iPad is a super slick way to write and run programs on your iPad. " - Gizmodo. Codea lets you create games and simulations -- or just about any visual idea you have. Turn your thoughts into interactive creations that make use of iPad features like Multi-Touch and the accelerometer. We think Codea is the most beautiful code editor you'll use, and it's easy. Codea is designed to let you touch your code. Want to change a color, or an image? Tapping will bring up visual editors that let you choose exactly what you want. Codea is built on the Lua programming language. A simple, elegant language that doesn't rely too much on symbols -- a perfect match for iPad. Here's how you use it: type your code. Press play to watch it run. Interact with it. Get creative. FEATURES. A fully featured 2D and 3D renderer. Lots of great example projects to learn from, including games. Touch your code: tap colors, images and sounds to adjust them. Export your finished projects to Xcode to produce real apps. Complete in-line reference documentation accessible from keyboard. Intelligent syntax highlighting and auto-completing code editor. Import your own assets from Dropbox. Full physics engine for complex motion. Add parameters so you can tweak variables at runtime. Interact with accelerometer and multi-touch on your device. Generate retro-game sound effects. GLSL Shader Language support with live shader editor. Bluetooth keyboard support and keyboard shortcuts. Video recording: Record videos of your projects and share them. Air Code: code live from your PC using WiFi. Much, much more. IMPORTANT INFORMATION.
