    Hey all,

    I am looking for a C editor and offline compiler for the iPad Pro which supports external keyboards. I see a lot of apps but most have crappy reviews. Wanted to check if anyone has any app recommendations.

    I have the same problem from a Java perspective. Textastic seems a good editor, but of course compiling is remote, you can only fetch and push back one file at a time, completely hopeless for any project of any size, and of course compiling or running anything is out of the question.

    iOS may be becoming enough computer for more people (allegedly), but if you're a coder, no, not even close. You can code *through* it, essentially by using it as a dumb terminal, but not *on* it, not realistically.

    What about http://continuous.codes by the Calca dev? Seems interesting but oth I don't know C# (nor have I tried the app).

    Yup. I bought a iMac when my MBP died last year, while i love my iMac, i miss the mobility. I need something to carry around and have the flexibility to code on, browse and general stuff. I don't know if i should invest in a Macbook or something cheaper.

    I wonder when apple will come out with their new Mac lineup! its been way too long.
