Editorial for iPad looks very interesting:
At its core, it's a Markdown editor for iPad, but you can also think of it as a Pythonista spinoff, or a workflow automation tool, not unlike Automator.
I'd rather Apple would just port Applescript over to iOS, but as that isn't likely to happen Editorial looks like the next best bet.

Just because you can do something, it doesn't mean that you should:
Except for the dryers being infamous for not performing their most basic task – drying – students at the Sogn Student Village near the University of Oslo were happy with how the laundry system worked. Just swipe your laundry card and run load, and the charges are conveniently billed along with the rent. Neat. But of course, all good things must come to an end.
The university had decided to spend roughly $14 million on a new accounting/payment system. [...] Unknown to most of the inhabitants of the student village, dark times were looming.
The first signs of change were the glass cabinets containing routers and the CAT5 cables being connected to each machine appearing in the laundries. [...]
It gets much, much worse from that point on…
