    I want to get the Ipad but will mostly use it for development purposes. Now I did some research and bumped into this app for the Ipad called "CodeToGo" (which I found in the app store for IPAD). I can't post the link to the specific app but it can be googled. Supposedly the user can write code into this app and run it. This app can also allow for usage of multiple languages.
    Has anyone actually used this app and what did they think about its overall functionality. I mean how much code can it actually run sucessfully? Thanks in advance.

    It's a toy ... good for writing relatively small standalone programs.
    The app sends your program to a server somewhere (probably at ideone.com),
    compiles it there, runs it there (in a sandbox), and then returns the results
    (and any compiler errors/warnings) to you on you iPad.

    Go to www dot ideone dot com to try it out via the web.

    That said ... I bought it, tried it on my iPad, and it worked for the 5 or 6 languages
    I tried (C, COBOL, FORTH, Common LISP, Pascal, Smalltalk).

    BTW, it's running on:
    Linux frog-3 2.6.34 #6 SMP Fri Jan 21 15:21:52 CET 2011 i686 GNU/Linux
