This programming app is interesting, but it's very basic. For Lua programming, Codea looks better.
Need a lot of work.
Very cool, but there are things you should know...
First: the full functionality of this app costs $20. Yeah, it's pricey for an iPad App, but it's cheap for such an elegant an intuitive way to experience programming, especially if you're a beginner.
Second: the language used is Lua, but you don't need to know any to start playing around and modifying things, and even creating your first custom apps.
Third: there is no direct way to publish an app written here to be used by others. That would, sadly, be a violation of Apple's rules for their apps, and is not the point of this app (as far as I can tell). I'm sure there is a work path that can lead from here to a full app.
This app is a very cool tool, but note that it is in the educational category. $20 is a cheap price for this introduction to programming and the interface shows us how valuable bringing a touch based interface would be to the world of development. If you're interested in learning to program, give this a shot.
For those who have stated that the developer was being sneaky by not listing the price: the first thing in the description is that you'll need to purchase in-app to open up the functionality. And if youre ever wondering about the price, click on the link! It won't charge you until you accept the price.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
