Strictly requires Dropbox?!

Please remove the "requirement" for a Dropbox account. There are some of us who have no need for it, especially if we might have an account with another storage cloud site. It is smart to make the app able to back the files up to one of those sites, but requiring an account to one that a user might not prefer to use, that's unfair. Please make the app able to be used with or without Dropbox, or at least add compatability with other cloud sites.

Good, clean, and simple

Good app, works great. Looking forward to updates to include search feature. Could simplify creating new files by using first line of file as file name.

Exactly what it needs to be

Caret is a text editor. It doesn't have any flashy features and doesn't need them. Great value.
