    “Certainly, none of these are a full integrated development environment. (What do you expect for under twenty bucks? Or for free?)” 
    Certainly not a valid statement in the days of the likes of Eclipse and NetBeans available for free. Yes, I do expect a full IDE for free :)

    @Ethan – I do not think that either Eclipse or NetBeans is available on the iPad. This article is about code editors for the iPad.

    Great list of the code editor for iPad apps. Why you not mention Eclipse and NetBeans which are available for free?

    I use GoodReader for my text editing (which includes writing raw HTML) with the ZAGGmate keyboard mentioned above.

    Interesting that fifteen different code editors available for iPad and not even a single one has SVN support (and only one offers git), basically meaning that no serious developer could ever hope to do work on them. Fine for hobby development, but useless for most paid coding. I appreciate the roundup, but holler when someone puts SVN support into one of these apps (or Eclipse gets ported to the iPad. ROFL).

      I totally agree with Donavan. Seriously no GIT and SVN support…?

    Why not set up your svn directory in a cloud location such as dropbox and work directly in a folder that syncs to your svn respository. It wont commit automatically but there is nothing to stop you using a Remote Desktop on the ipad for commiting your work from your desktop.  
    In fact I actually use my notepad++ remotely on my ipad. Connections can be a little slow sometimes but it does let you work on the move.  
    I consider my ipad a mobile development tool.. I either work in an ipad development app and sync to my svn directory through dropbox. then when I get home all I have to do is commit from my desktop if I havne not already done it remotely

      Sorry for the inconvenience Michael. We just migrated to a new platform and are still cleaning up some of the residual issues that came from that. Thanks for pointing out this post in particular. I’ll make sure to get it cleaned up as soon as we can.

    I will recommend “iLearning D3″, although it’s main is “interactive learning”, but during you are learning D3 (which is a very good js library), you can coding and even run js in console. Similar with debug tool in chrome.

    You can also try “iLeanring D3 js”, it is a interactive html/js/css code editor, with a complete tutorial of D3.js.

    if you need a good code editor on ios try GoCoEdit.
    Seems to be the Sublime Text or Textmate for iPhone and iPad.
