Bugs needs to be fixed

Although I appreciate the idea and would definitely be really helpful if i can edit a document on my iphone eg adding highlights and comments whenever needed and found the documents updated on other devices that i use, how ever this is point in particular isn’t working i mean the editing part has to be from computer only.
Please fix it as i want to rely completely on this app during all my work

Just getting started

I am just getting started with the app and like it so far. Have the desktop version which is great. Hope they will add calendar and tasks to sync with desktop as well.
