Code Editor is a text editor with syntax highlighting, clips, find replace, the works. But it also has a full file manager, allowing you to work with files locally or remotely. It has a cool keyboard with context keys and an amazing super loupe to set your cursor. It manages 'sites' so you can quickly get to work, and it'll even sync those sites. It'll preview your pages, of course. And we've also thrown in a full-featured SSH terminal. It's an incredible app.

SITES. The foundation of Code Editor: create a site for each of your projects, local or remote, and quickly get to the files you need to edit. Better still, use our free Panic Sync service to sync these sites with our Mac apps, securely and quickly.

FILES. We've been building file managers for a really long time — we've got this. Local, remote, or any mix of the two. Edit, rename, duplicate, create folders, upload, download, you name it, you got it.

EDITING. Tap a file to land in our highly-optimized text editor, which syntax highlights your code with ease. Now, try this: move the insertion point. Whoa. That's the Super Loupe, magnifying magic we think is the best way to precisely set your cursor.

CLIPS. Have a handful of code bits you re-use a lot? Tap the clips icon in Code Editor, and load them in. Now you can insert them with a single tap.

FIND / REPLACE. Let’s say you accidentally inverted the values of your width and height tags. With our find and replace banner — and its breakthrough wildcard button — you can easily replace or swap or re-arrange your text.

TERMINAL. Really? Like, a full-featured SSH client built-in? Sure! Not only is it great value for your money, but it's also great help to getting your work done. Connect to your sites with a tap, and get the full-featured spot-on emulation of Prompt.

TABS. Quickly switch between your open documents. I know, it's obvious. But still.

CONTEXT KEYS. We've added a special section to your iOS keyboard that gives you the most useful, helpful special characters, automatically. It takes a lot of the pain out of writing code on a piece of glass.

We've put a desktop-class amount of work into Code Editor. It's truly a pro app. But, it's not hard to learn. And most amazingly, you're getting an incredible amount of power at a killer price.

Really good

Its a really good IDE for the iPad. It would be perfect if there was built in support for Git / Github

Good product + poor support = not good enough.

Generally Diet Coda is a promising product: Coda's design is a great interface for web work and this lets you run your server/website nicely on mobile.

Maintenance updates of this app are like mythical beasts though, and that doesn't cut it when everyone has to keep up with Apple's changing rules! The bug examples below (and a general deafening silence on feature and improvement requests) clearly indicate that Panic treat this as a fire-and-forget project, not a crowd that any customer should want to get in with. Just opening their own app since the iOS8 updates would have picked these up...

Current big bugs (iPad, iOS 8.1):
-In terminal the keyboard special buttons are all layered on top of each other so half can't be pressed.
-In (at least) terminal, rotating the screen sometimes makes the nav bar disappear to be replaced by weird lines on screen. You have to kill & restart the app to get anywhere else.
