Diet Coda is a new iPad app that’s touted as a powerful, feature packed web editor with an easy to use interface.
It’s published by Panic, who make some excellent Mac apps. I love their Transmit FTP app. Here’s their elevator pitch for Diet Coda for iPad:
What happens when you take the power of Coda, our Mac OS X web code editor, and crunch it down into a powerful, feature-packed iPad package? Introducing Diet Coda, the best way to make quick edits to your websites on the go.

Use your iPad as a dedicated preview window for Coda 2 on the Mac
This app looks and sounds hugely promising. It almost makes me wish I was a developer – and it’s certainly another great example of how the iPad is so much more than a ‘media consumption’ device.
Developers – what do you think of this app? Are you going to be giving it a try?
Here’s an App Store link for Diet Coda; it’s priced at $19.99.
