for i: Code Editor for the iPad
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Code editing just arrived on the iPad!
Take your programming and design projects with you on the road, and get that killer app done in no time!
With [for i] you get:
Beautiful syntax highlighting for many languages, including C, c#, Objective C, Java, HTML, PHP, Ruby, Python, SQL (*) and more.
Customize the look and feel with your favorite fonts and colors.
Transfer files to and from the app with a built in web server (requires a Wi-Fi network).
Our keyboard provides useful often-used keys for easy access and quick typing. You can also use Apple's Keyboard dock or a bluetooth keyboard with common shortcuts (CMD-Z for Undo, arrow keys for navigation etc.)
Take snapshots of your files and revert back in any time.
We're constantly improving [for i] and will have some improvements ready real soon, including better indentation rules, more accurate syntax highlighting and symbol/function selectors.
Plans for the future include Git integration, import of TextMate bundles (without the shell commands, of course), building projects through distcc servers, MSDN and ADC documentation integration and much more.
Let us know about your feature wants through Settings > Send Feedback.
(*) We know, we know, you don't need SQL highlighting on the go. But it doesn't hurt, does it?

Has potential ... still work to do
This app has potential, but it lacks in a few important ways.
It needs some serious optimization for "large" files (> few hundred lines).
There also needs to be a better way to get files into (and out of) the app. Enable the "Open in ..." dialogue box into fori from other apps (goodreader, dropbox, readdle, email, ...) and out of fori into these apps.
I hope this continues to be developed as it has a lot of potential and currently zero competition.
Where is the app tester?
This is great just what I wanted except for the app tester. But sience I'm new to programming, I don't know that much about it so I'd enjoy a place to test the app I'm making. So if there is one, I hope the company would make it more visable, or, add one if there isn't.
Great to read programs but needs more features
Great app. for reading and going over a program. One feature it really needs is opening each program file in a tab and able to switch between files faster instead of going through the list of programs.
