Is there a good code editor app available?
Something with tag color coding at the least?
That can save and open local files, rather than connecting to a remote server.

I guess mainly for HTML but also for other would be good. (I'm doing some book code learning, and being able to type code into my iPad rather than needing a full computer would be useful for on the go).

I use Textastic, it is very good.

+1 Textastic, but I prefer Koder to it. Here's a good review on both apps and they come down really to personal preference, with Koder getting a slight edge.

Wow..That looks good. Looks like it has every thing I'm hoping to find eventually.

It's a bit on the pricier side for me right now...If I actually get myself going and coding constantly, it looks like a must buy. (I have that tendency of getting stuff like apps and books to start learning...then not ever using them...so I'm treading softly on the money layout til I get rolling:p)

Thanks for the suggestion!

Edit: Also Koder. Hmmm.. Thanks for the review link! Both on my Apps to watch list!
