Two Programs for Writing and Executing Code on an iPad

I have recently come across two iPad programs that enable writing and running programs. One is called Codea. It uses Lua as its programing language. The other is Pythonista, which uses Python. Both offer graphics capabilities.

Codea is great for its editor, which enables menu and pop-up widget tools for selecting colors, images and sprites, and sliders and wheel widgets for changing numerical values.

Pythonista is useful for logical programing in Python, math, graphics manipulation, and utility applications that require access to the various services offered by the iOS, such as the file system, the camera, the GEO locator, the accelerometer, etc.
