Would you reconsider RStudio? If this is a person's first experience with a computer or cell phone then RStudio is a bit much. Relative to using a browser, MSWord, Excel, or many of the modern video games RStudio is simple. I have seen beginning R courses start at the level of print("Hello World") in RStudio.

What about Tinn R

It has syntax highlighting and you can easily send your whole code or its part to R from it.
