update breaks scripts
A generally nice app, but the latest update (Nov 7) breaks some apps that used to work. It claims to detect encoding problems, but the automatic fix just leaves scripts that don't produce any output. No obvious reason why some scripts work and others don't.

Wonderful python environment
This is a delightful environment to learn, explore and develop small python functions and programs, especially given the strictures that Apple puts on such apps. The libraries which make python so useful are being introduced slowly, but already surprising functionality is present, especially in the graphics area. You can even manage a web server for your local wifi net in short order and a few lines of code. Amazing. Now when I have a few minutes somewhere I can open my iPad and resume working on my current programming problems. For me it's more much fun than playing a game.

Fantastic app with a few shortcomings
First of all, thanks for the great app. I've been using it extensively on my iPhone. 5 since I first downloaded it. It works remarkably well, and the developer has done a great job creating useful modules to work with the iOS environment. As an iPhone 5 user, I would really like to have support for the larger screen. Apart from this, I noticed a bug. When in the text editor, if you rotate to landscape and then back to portrait, the menu bar disappears. This makes it impossible to do anything besides edit the current script. As a workaround I locked the screen to portrait orientation, but sometimes it really helps to see more code horizontally. As a final suggestion, I wish the editor would recognize built in types and offer suggestions. For example, if you have a variable lst that's a list, then typing lst. should prompt suggestion like append(), extend(), etc. Thanks for the fantastic app!

Perhaps one of the best Python environments on any platform. Gorgeous and powerful.
