Codify redefines coding: touch-enabled programming comes on your iPad
Who said coding was hard? Codify is an iPad application that challenges your perception of programming at the very core. It's unique by just being available on the iPad – a device with no hardware keyboard, but – sure – you can add one to type faster. The point of Codify, though, is that it allows you to touch the screen selecting predefined objects and colors, instead of type. Basically, it's a text editor, but it's so visual and advanced it almost doesn't feel like one.

So how does it tackle the challenge of the touch dominated platform that the iPad is? Simply – by adding touch actions for the most common variables. If you need to select a color, you don't have to type down the RGB value – instead you just select the color on a pop-up palette. For numbers, you can change them by a simple dragging motion. There's a huge set of predefined objects, but what's impressive is the ability to instantly preview your code. If it's a game, you can simply play it and it will respond to all of iPad's sensors – accelerometer and multi-touch support is enabled.

Currently, Codify is only available on the iPad, but not the iPhone or iPod touch, costing $7.99. Check out the video demo below – programming looks deceivingly easy, doesn't it?
