User reviews:

"This app is easy to use and works as advertised. And the devs rock. They responded quickly to my question and even helped me troubleshoot a problem with my Mac that was unrelated to the app. You can't go wrong with this purchase. Highly recommended!"

"Since this started supporting sftp, I use it all the time in my IT work. Very handy and works well."

"This makes editing and adding pages super easy. I'm really happy with the stability and the ability to maintain a connection while working with content from other apps. No problems and only good experiences. Thanks for a solid app!"

"Nice, clean app for transferring files and updating HTML and CSS. The editor is nice and easy to use, common symbols very quickly accessed. Support responded quickly and was very helpful at helping me set everything up right."

"I've been looking for a simple/complete file transfer app so that I can securely put and get files between my iPad and PC. I wish I had tried this before all of the other train wrecks! Great job on the app!!"

"I was out of my office and needed to fix a PHP script for one of my clients, and that worked perfect for me.
I totally recommend."

It works!

Wasn't too sure what to expect, but the connection and uploads worked just fine. No saving bookmarks is cumbersome, but for a free app I can't complain. I maintain a website with many pdf files that require updating and now I can do this from my iPad if I don't have access to my desktop Mac.

I’m using this to edit html and php files on an ftp server. It keeps changing my double quotes to left and right quotation marks, then telling me that I’m not using the correct encoding.

Also, copying and pasting text causes a temporary change in font size and color of the whole document.

Not sure what other people are using this for, but for editing a simple text file, I’d rather just get a shell and edit using emacs or (ugh) even vi.

Glad I tried the lite version first.

Update from developer response: This apparently has to do with the smart punctuation feature of iOS 11 (released in September 2017). It is now April 2018, more than 6 months later, and the developers have not produced a fix for this. Instead, the workaround is to disable this helpful feature just for the privilege of using this one app.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. iOS 11 introduced a smart punctuation concept, that is the cause of your issue: http://appleinsider.com/articles/17/09/26/tips-turn-off-ios-11-smart-punctuation-to-avoid-data-entry-problems Please contact me on LessIsMoreDevelopment@gmail.com
