Was looking for a emacs clone on ipad, but it seems emacs uses lots of lisp and as per Apple’s store policies, can’t have an application on iPhone and IPads which uses code which can internally execute processes or may traverse across the application boundaries or the internals of the system, hence emacs is not ported and after some googling I figured out it never will be since, emacs does believe in the freedom and Apple otherwise.

Though, I manage to download vim clone for ipad(and I am sure vim does uses some scripts).
