    Coding on the iPad

    Come on - I love my iPad and have nothing but respect for Apple. If I went in any other direction, I would buy a Rasberry Pi running Risc OS and use my iPad as a monitor/keypad because I do enjoy computing laid back in my arm chair. Just a bit lazy in my old age. You see I have seen the Arm chip...

    Coding on the iPad

    You guys certainly quote the gospel according to Steve Jobs ☺️ You now play on the word 'develop'. I understand that you need to pass Apple criteria if you want your 'App' to go into Apple's App Store. Just as I have to get clearance to post here. What I choose to try and do with my iPad truly...

    Coding on the iPad

    You keep throwing the book at me. The latest iPad gives us a thinner lighter device with improved performance. A new iPad may well be delivered by Apple early next year. A bigger screen ? Could be another chip who knows what ? The iPad may well outgrow IOS. I just hope that Apple open up a bit...

    Coding on the iPad

    Come on you are playing with words, the site would not exist if Apple took exception to it. Please give me your opinion to the original question. Should Apple build a High Level Coding Language into IOS-8 ?

    Coding on the iPad

    Then are all those people trying to apply a coding language to the iPad (eg. Pyronista) wasting their time ? Many apps are written outside IOS with Apple approval. What is needed is Apple 'stamp' and cooperation in this aspect of Ipad evolution. I believe that the format of this forum is...

    Coding on the iPad

    It doesn't have to be Apple's flag ship language. Python 3.4 is up and running. Surely Apple could collaborate in creating an App to run that on an iPad. Having got as far as 'Python for IOS' with Python.org.

    Coding on the iPad

    Should Apple build a High Level Coding App into IOS-8 ? Apple are renowned for playing hard to get. They want Apps developing for IOS-8, a declared intention of SWIFT their new programming language but to employ it iPad owners have to buy a Mac.

    Swift can not be used on an iPad

    There's quite a bit to take in with Codea, I shan't be developing apps any time soon. If 'Two Lives Left/ReefWing Software' can creat 'Codea' on an iPad usig Lua why can't 'Apple' do a similar thing with Swipe ? Perhaps 'ReefWing Software' will do it for them. I can't see that capacity should...

    Swift can not be used on an iPad

    Thanks for pointing out codea. Seems a bit pricey but I'll give it a try. It may well restore my faith in the iPad following the disappointment after upgrading to IOS-8. It's good to have someone acknowledge little knowledge and shoot straight from the hip.

    Swift can not be used on an iPad

    ok twerppoet so you are happy and know Apple and I am disappointed and new to Apple. Do you think that the iPad should have in built coding capability for silver surfers like me who learned their computing on the old BBC Beeb and Risc OS ?

    Swift can not be used on an iPad

    Scifan57 That's the way I understand it. However Apple linked Swift to the release of IOS-8 giving the impression it would be functional on a device running that operating system. A bit of misleading advertising. As a computer hobbiest I had hoped for a coding facility to be built into the iPad...

    Swift can not be used on an iPad

    Thanks Diane But not sure that this is the answer. The SWIFT that I am after is the new programming language used to develop Apps. Can you point me to an App. that you have created using only your iPad Air ? Steep

    Swift can not be used on an iPad

    IOS-8 is the operating system for iPhones and iPads so why is Swift, Apples new programming language claimed as an IOS-8 feature when the feature can only be used on a Mac. ? Does Apple intend to provide an App that will let Swift be used on an IPad running IOS-8 ?

    That's all very well Skimonkey but be now have several topics on one thread. :-) Accessing and editing my web site ( nothing more than an hobbiest learning curve ) was my purpose in registering here. The subject heading now has no connection to that purpose, can the heading be changed to that...

    'Nuff said. I am generally law abiding. Never before have I been restricted to posting my Website. Sorry for breaking the rules. Basically I am an 85 year old law abiding citizen who took to computing as a hobby when I volunteered for early retirement. Having started with an old Acorn BBC...

    An intro. For Steep

    That site was created some time ago on a Windows PC. My main reason for coming here is to find out if there is any iPad software that will let me access and edit that site. Not only that if there is such software I would be grateful if anyone could give me precise information on how to use it. :-)
