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?

OK, but can't handle large file

The additional line on top of keyboard is good
File transfer is ok
Support many formats

Big Con:
If your file is very large, it takes seconds to response each single key you type...you simply can't do the work. This is really disappointing...

5/5 stars

Unexpected find

What a pleasant find. I'm a software engineer and just got an ipad. Just for grins I typed in various words related to programming to see what popped up. Didn't really expect anything, but was surprised to find this app. After reading the reviews, I purchased it. I've been using it for a few weeks now and I really like the concept and where this app is heading.

Love the keyboard and how they've tailored it to put the keys most often used when coding on the top level. Simply great!

Look, I don't expect the ipad to act like a full-fledged computer and compile and run code, but I love coding and really wanted a syntax-highlighting editor to flesh out ideas while mobile. This fits the bill perfectly and anything the developers add beyond that will make an already great app better. The thought of git integration just makes me giddy.

This app makes me happy to be an ipad owner.

2/5 stars

Unbearable when editing longer files

When working with a file containing 1500 lines of code, typing is way too sluggish. A fresh restart of the iPad did not help. This app is way too expensive considering problems like that. Hopefully this will be fixed in an update. Otherwise a good app.
