With thousands of apps floating around these days, it seems like there is an app for everything. But there is always room for more creative ideas.

Of course, it can be challenging to turn an idea into an app. But it's not when you're using an app-making app.

Codea is an app that lets you create gaming and simulation apps directly from your iPad. You will have to know some basic coding to get started, but it is easy to use with just a few taps required to edit and change settings.

Don't worry about it being too challenging. It has built-in tools, tricks and tips to help you along the way. There is also a forum to share code and trade tips with experienced programmers.

Built on the Lua programming language, Codea can render your code with syntax highlighting, and can also render 3-D graphics on the iPad Retina display. You can even record a video of your project and share it with friends, to get their feedback.

Want to see how easy it is to create apps like videogames using Codea? Check out this Codea intro video.
