Met my needs perfectly
A few days ago I was a passenger in an (almost) all-day car trip. I had an Internet connection so I could browse the App Store. I needed to write a quick program to generate a series of paragraph headings, and I really wanted to create them with a program rather than typing the same thing over and over (with enough variations to foil cut and paste). I tried writing a program using a BASIC app I'd downloaded before, but the lack of nameable, multi-line functions in that dialect got me tangled up surprisingly quickly. I tried another Lua app, but my ignorance of the language coupled with how cumbersome it was to navigate the documentation links quickly grew frustrating. I saw that this App was free and small and tried it out. It met my needs perfectly, and I was able to write a Lua program to generate the paragraph headings quickly and learn a little Lua along the way :-)
Excellent and free to boot! I would enjoy it a little more if the text editor was a little more robust in its handling of indentation, and syntax highlighting would be awesome as well - I would readily pay for a version with those additions.
I was looking around for a app to script lua on, I spent two dollars and found a completely useless app that promised so much. Then I found Luna and i immediately downloaded it! It works better then I could of imagined AND it is completely free!
