Can still be improved!

So far, I really enjoy this app, and I love that I don't need working copy to access github. However, while the auto-complete features are already great, I feel as though this app still lags a bit behind Textastic in terms of productivity. For me, the biggest issue is the lack of emmet, which is something I've become used to using in every text editor I've used to date; I really hope to see it appear in a future release. As the app is right now, despite costing the same, it's just not quite on par with Textastic yet, but the way things are going, I have hope that that will change soon!

Thrilled for editing over SSH

I tried almost every iPad editor available (as of 2020). For what I need — adding an SSH connection and editing remote files — this app finally nailed it. I had an SSH connection running within minutes, you can navigate your remote file structure in the left-hand pane, tap a file to open, type with streamlined highlighting, and save (cmd-s) to immediately upload your changes to the remote server. I admit that this is a pretty low bar, but no other app accomplishes it! You get tabs for multiple open files, and a basic remote terminal. Also, I really appreciated the ability to customize the font/size/spacing and theme — I finally have the Atom “One Dark” theme back that I missed from my Mac! I feel more productive already :)

Poorly polished

The app really seems to lack behind Textastic in most areas of usability and is really badly polished.

Here are the annoyances I had while using the app:
- The is an annoying and significant slowdown whenever a key on the keyboard is pressed.
- searching for text (which I could only figure out how to do by pressing cmd+f on my hardware keyboard) does not show you the text that you are searching for
- changes made during the weird text searching does not get added to the undo buffer, so changes are permanent (and it is really hard to see the cursor during text replacement)
- the file browser is generally unintuitive and only allows you to delete and rename files.
- the stinking file browser stays on the left side of the screen for the entire time you’re editing a file
- syntax highlighting is SUPER limited. The C syntax highlighting did not even recognize “uint” or “bool”
- auto-closing parenthesis, brackets, and quotations does not work
- Settings are unorganized and thrown into a single menu

There are many many more annoyances but those are the problems I discovered after 5 minutes of using

I would not be distracted by the UI eye candy… Looks good but does not function well.

Developer Response ,

Hi, Thanks for the feedback.

- The is an annoying and significant slowdown whenever a key on the keyboard is pressed.
We have not experienced this issue. Please contact us via email with more details.

- searching for text (which I could only figure out how to do by pressing cmd+f on my hardware keyboard) does not show you the text that you are searching for
You should see highlighted rectangle over the text/characters. Which theme you are using if highlighting is hard to see ?

- changes made during the weird text searching does not get added to the undo buffer, so changes are permanent (and it is really hard to see the cursor during text replacement)
There is undo over the software keyboard and cmd+z works with hardware keyboard when in edit mode. Which theme you are using if cursor is hard to see?

- the file browser is generally unintuitive and only allows you to delete and rename files.
Press the ”+” button on top for more actions (Functions differs between different "connections" and views)

- the stinking file browser stays on the left side of the screen for the entire time you’re editing a file
Press the fullscreen button on top right of the editor or shortcut with keyboard to get rid of the file browser view while editing.

- auto-closing parenthesis, brackets, and quotations does not work
If you have issues. Please contact us via email with more details.
