Codify is an awesome new app for the iPad from Two Lives Left which allows you to create games and simulations — “or just about any visual idea you have” — without a computer. It claims to be the most beautiful code editor you’ll use, and it’s optimized for a touch-based device, allowing you to “touch your code.”
Codify is just $7.99 and it’s available in the App Store now, promising to be the perfect match for your iPad:
Codify for iPad 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 Codify is the most beautiful code editor you’ll use, and it’s easy. Codify is designed to let you touch your code. Want to change a number? Just tap and drag it. How about a color, or an image? Tapping will bring up visual editors that let you choose exactly what you want.
Codify is built on the Lua programming language. A simple, elegant language that doesn’t rely too much on symbols — a perfect match for iPad.
With the initial release, you won’t be able to export your apps to the App Store, or share the executables, unfortunately. However, Two Lives Left have promised to introduce this feature if Apple’s App Store rules allow it, according to 9to5Mac.
Codify looks like an awesome app for developers. If you’ve used it, what do you think?
