Very good editor

This is the best text editor app I have found. The keyboard is especially good. My only improvement would be Google verification.

Mcmuffy ,

I like it.

I quite like this editor as I spend a lot of time ssh’d into various servers and being able to stay in just the one app is great.
My only gripe is that without renaming you can only open files with supported extensions. I would ideally like to open any file and then specify the formatting. If this exists then I is dumb and sorry. I will add the extra star though.

EDIT : My bad. It seems that if you create a file with the desired extension you can open files of this type ever after. Star added.

Text Editors are like marmite

I downloaded this app a couple of years ago as it supported split views quite early. I’ve found myself using Buffer as my default editor. The Vim bindings are a godsend allowing me to use most of my Vim muscle memory when working. If you’re comfortable with Vim and modal editors you’ll probably like Buffer.

The only real improvement I’d look for would be better inter-app communication with Working Copy
