iLuaBox 1.5 Update

iLuaBox provides an intuitive environment to learn, write, and run scripts written in the Lua Programming Language. This is not a stripped down version of Lua, but rather a full-featured implementation that is optimized for iOS. iLuaBox is a universal application that runs on any device compatible with iOS 4.3 or later. Lua is a powerful, fast, lightweight, embeddable scripting language. It combines simple procedural syntax with powerful data description constructs based on associative arrays and extensible semantics. Lua has been used in many industrial applications, with an emphasis on embedded systems and games.

iLuaBox Pro includes several built-in toolboxes that are available as In-App purchases from within iLuaBox standard edition.

iLuaBox Lite includes all the features from iLuaBox standard edition except for expansions via In-App purchases. Also, iLuaBox Lite allows saving files with a length of 6500 characters or less.
