Super mega cool hot API offline app

It’s cool app, when it was not ready to app store I compiled it by myself in their site instruction for every one month by Xcode.
You must compile it by yourself and pushing it to your devices.

Until now, i found out that owner of application export the ready iOS version for it.

For windows and lovely UNIX based means Linux you can use Zeal, Zeal is alternative for Dash in Linux and Windows although it’s docs resources it’s same as Dash.
Dash provide docs for itself and Zeal.
So go for it.

I must say thank you to the great developer, specially JavaScript Developer need this app because of a lot of JavaScript forks and frameworks out there to save in your mind.

Very useful, just lacks one major feature

This app is great. I’ve used it on iOS and MacOS for years. However, it lacks the ability to sync doc sets between my iPhone, iPad, & Mac. I have to manually make sure each are in sync.

Also, on Mac there is a way to use different versions of doc sets. Like Laravel 5 rather than Latest 6 (which I don’t use yet).

I would like to request iCloud sync and the ability to download other versions of doc sets rather than just the latest.

Other that that it’s great and I use it often. I find it faster than searching the web docs for quick checks.

I’d give it 5 stars if these features came. I’m a paid supporter. Perhaps make a paid iOS version that allows iCloud sync between iOS, iPadOS, & MacOS.


Needed features Dark Mode

This is a great app all in all. Very helpful when trying to look up an attribute. Like how they have community made docs as well. It was just missing a feature like Dark Mode looking at a white screen with black text was eye-straining but I like the app a lot I use it very often when I’m confused or forget what a function does.
