Not having an iPad I rarely follow the news regarding it, however I noticed this in the comp.lang.python.announce newsgroup and thought it worthy of a mention:
Hi All, I’m pleased to announce PyPad is now in the AppStore. PyPad is an iPad application containing the python interpreter and a simple execution environment……I wanted to have python available ‘on the go’ without carrying a laptop. The current implementation is based on my need to test simple python functions in an isolated environment. I hope to add more iOS specific capabilities if there is enough interest.
You can visit PyPad Homepage here: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/pypad/id428928902?mt=8
I am pleased to see Python getting exposure on many different platforms and it’s a flexible language that is accessible enough for the new user too. There are so many free resources on the net for Python, so no excuse not to get involved!
