A huge part of my daily work flow

I have been using this app for a long time on three devices.

After all these years, it is still the fastest app for text files on dropbox.

I was especially pleased when the app developers updated the iPhone version, so that there is a “close” and “done” button that puts the current file away, preventing duplicate file errors. Unfortunately, the iPad version still creates these errors, so I have to remember to open a file I don’t care about before I close the app. This work-around works fine.

I will update my review to five stars when the iPad version is updated to include the DONE and CLOSE buttons.

However I have to say, I have never found another app that replaces this one for me for editing and manipulating text files on dropbox. I am very grateful for this app every day.

Very useful. I use it every day for years

However, there are some bugs:
1. “Recents” tab in files menu is broken. 5 from 10 tomes when I chose some file - it opens some other
2. It crashes in split screen multi app mode when I open file at my Ipad air 4th
3. I have many very long files. I need a button or a gesture that automatically takes me to the end of file, because scrolling takes years, and I need to do it every day

good but missing core function...

When I'm browsing my files in the Dropbox app I may suddenly have a need to make a note. Dropbox can't do it, which is why I need an app like this.
Let's assume I already have a txt file in Dropbox, and I just want to edit it.

I'll just select "open in" and then choose your app, and it will take me directly to that file in your app and I'm editing in no time, right?!
Your app isn't even listed in "activities" as an option. And if it were, it would probably merely just open the app instead of the file itself. That is to say, I'll have to navigate to the file for the 2nd time.

I've gone through many apps to find a solution. Others do show up in the "activities" / "open in" list (PlainText, for example), but do not open the file - just the app.
Microsoft Word and Excel do open the file directly, so I know it's possible. But Word won't open a txt file...

Use word docs instead of txt files? Ew.
