An Interesting and Powerful Editor

I give GoCoEdit five stars because the things it does, it does extremely well. As far as I know it’s the only iOS editor with multiple cursors (like Sublime), which is a wonderful feature.

On the downside, it’s lack of clear documentation can mean untangling its power can be a bit tricky. It also (I assume_ enforces a specific workflow: you are either working on local files, or remote server files, but I can’t seem to discover any way to edit a local file, then connect it with a remote server for publishing. In my case this is problematic, because I can easily open files from my Working Copy git repositories, but there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to then publish any changes I make to the server. Working directly on the server just doesn’t make sense when you’re using version control.

Hopefully as it matures features such as these will be added, but GoCoEdit really is a powerful editor I would like to spend more time with.

Great Development App that has many Features

This is a very impressive app, and thanks for the new update, I love the interactive JavaScript console!

The only problem/suggestion I have is when entering commands, etc into the new JavaScript console, and I need to type quotes, the keyboard by default types the rich text “fancy” quotes, not the plain text ones... so I get errors. And actually, now that there is the interactive console, I think it would just be a big improvement to have the extra row of ‘keys, on top of the keyboard, (just like when you’re in regular editing a file mode).

Loving this app, thanks again for the update, I will use the js console a lot!

Great mobile editor!

I’ve tried all the free apps and frankly, they’re all rubbish. I couldn’t bring myself to drop a wad of money on an app like coda either. I decided to give Goco a try and it is definitely a great app - a good balance of price and functionality. The only thing really limiting the app is the janky “file manager”included with iOS. However, the creator of this app has added the ability to specify / bookmark preferred directories which allows you to easily access specific files and folders.

This lemon is definitely worth the squeeze.
