I’ve been too busy & overwhelmed lately to try using Codea; but I kept getting this impression that; either Codea, the iPad, or both; don’t do all or most of the things that a person wants or needs to do.
I know that big things come in small packages. It’s just that I think I recall reading somewhere that Lua is a basic computer programming language. I could be wrong, but I could have sworn that it was being called a simple programming language.
Whatever it was that I read; it made Codea sound like it was unpopular, it wasn’t widely used or used by most people, etc. Also, there don’t seem to be very many apps that were made by use Lua; and none of those Codea examples or apps look like they could ever hope to compete with some of the top, highly-grossed, highly-successful apps, when the examples & apps are based on graphics.
Nobody is satisfied with standard graphics, service, food, etc anymore. Almost everyone these days only crave the best stuff & everything has to be in HD. People will only accept the best and they’re unwilling to settle for less.
Anyways, I’m sorry about that. Some examples of apps with really-detailed, realistic graphics are Asphalt 5-7, Epoch, March Of The Dinosaurs, Theodolite, Dragon Slayer, and Verto Studio 3D.
Anyways, the reasons that gave me the idea that Codea may be strong, but not advanced, when compared to other programming languages, are the graphics; the fact that none of the apps that were produced by Lua (that I’ve heard of) are in 3D; Lua doesn’t appear to be a language that’s commonly or widely used; people can’t put new Codea apps onto Apple’s App Store with Codea; I don’t know if Codea’s examples are showing Lua’s full potential; and whatever it was that I read on the Internet.
Since I’ve probably received the wrong idea; can you please, if possible, give me some examples to help me better understand of just how far Lua can go?
Does it let people create apps similar to Microsoft Office, Outline± OneNotes for iPad, Quick Office, Sparkle 2: Evolution, Collapse Or Oblivion: Solar Collapse, MyBot Creator, Music Studio by Alexander Cross, Mogul by MakeHitMusic.com, whatever photo & video apps are out there, etc?
Can you generate games for the Nintendo 3DS, Wii, Windows 7 computer, etc? Is it conceivable to manufacture an alternative version of Apple’s iOS? Does Lua allow you to program your project to run Machine Learning code? Can you run a coded program to record most of your life & make it digital?
Thanks if you can help me & or understand what I’m trying to say. If you can’t help me & or don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, thanks anyways. Also, thanks for letting me know that what I wrote didn’t make sense. I understand that you don’t get an answer right away, but I was starting to worry that I had said something rude without knowing it or meaning to.
