More About Codea

"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.

What's New in Codea 3.7.1 >


- Issue where dragging the starting selection handle on some text would cause the selection to narrow to zero length and possibly crash

- Multiple runtime errors should now clear correctly on a subsequent run

- Syntax errors that occur when runtime errors are visible should not incorrectly persist

- Using the sprite (or any) picker when a function contains other arguments containing expressions using the % sign will no longer produce corrupt text around the location of the % sign when an asset is selected
