Needs IDE in iOS App

The BlinkUp functionality works fine. But the Electric Imp web-based IDE at the website doesn't work on iOS devices.

If the app also had IDE functioinality, I could write, debug, or modify code on the go. Which makes sense for an Internet-of-Things / Cloud-hosted device like the Electric Imp.
