Let’s me quickly edit files directly on remote drive, manually save them or exit them without saving if I want (other editors that I’ve tried, except GoCoEdit also by this dev, aren’t easy to manually save and all seem to auto save on exit with no option to disable). Thanks for fixing the problem with Google Drive.

Hallelujah it syncs with OneDrive

So many years, lost in the file sync wilderness of iOS. So many Markdown editors, assuming the only cloud storage systems worth supporting are iCloud and Dropbox. So much frustration, trying in vain to make OneDrive work with apps like iA Writer and Pretext via the Files app. So many documents inexplicably duplicated. So much progress lost when Files fails to sync at all.

At last, I have stumbled upon GTW, and it just works. My OneDrive folder is synced, my markdown files in tow, my edits instantly reflected across iPhone, iPad, and PC.

I am a simple man. I do not want for fancy things like direct Wordpress publishing, writing goals, or exhaustive outlines. All I ask is that when I write in Markdown on one device, that writing is available on my other devices. And to my astonishment, GTW delivers. It makes my sole nitpicks with this app—no apparent way to sort a folder by date modified, uninspiring fonts—seem incredibly minor.

Great app with good combination of features. Though a little pricy for a simple app, there aren’t others that provide this ability to simply open and view/edit text over the network. Besides, I love that there is no in app purchase or subscription or ads.

Needs dark mode.
