Does this require coding know how? Even if it does, I want this. It looks awesome.

Yes, you write code in Lua. I can say this App is well supported by its developers.

Check out this link to get a better idea:

On a side note you should also pick up Gamepress while it's free. It allows you to be able to create games without coding. Using Codea and Gamepress together you'll be creating games in no time at all!

It's for making apps/games right on your iPad, with Lua programming language. Very good product indeed.

Btw, "TouchArcade Bot", "0 post",... what's that? :|

That's how an app is posted if someone posts from the TA app.

Codea is awesome. Everything is Lua, but it can do some super cool things. You can even write your own OpenGL shaders.

Is it easy to pick up the language?
I am programming for years in Delphi and for Delphi IOS now, but
I saw same examples for Codea and it looks like C, C++?
Which I tried learning for 20+ years, but I just don't get it lol.
all those terms and brackets is making me confused

Yes, it's a lot like the old 'basic' language.
