Great in its simplicity but could use some more features

This is a great compliment to Beorg, which is my main orgmode tool on iOS. That tool is more meant for organization and agendas, though; sometimes I just want to see or edit a file and Orgro makes that much easier.

Looking forward to new features. A big one I would like is the ability to mark checkboxes in checklists... especially in highly structured files (like shopping lists where items are broken into category) this is intrinsically difficult in beorg. I’d love to open up a list in Orgro and use one click to mark checkboxes.

Great reading experience, clunky file access

I use deft + org to organize my notes in emacs, and this is great for accessing them on the go. In particular the math rendering is awesome.

My only complaint is that accessing files is hard. Searching by file name in the file browser doesn’t seem to work. If you update a file, you need to again locate and re-open the file to have it update in orgro. Functionality to index your org files and search by title or tag would be incredible.

Overall i love it. Thanks to the developer!

(Also, would be great to have non-monospace font options)

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback.

FiraGO is a proportional font. I am open to additional font suggestions; please open a ticket on GitHub if you have any.

I believe I have fixed the issue with file content being stale in v1.18.1. If you continue to have problems please contact or open a ticket on GitHub.

No file syncing?

Edit: thanks for the response. Whatever the mechanism, the latest entry in my “recent files” doesn’t update when I press it (it’s days out of date by now). To update I have to delete the entry and reopen the. File from Dropbox.

I was fine with it being read only, but does it really not sync automatically with Dropbox or iCloud files you’ve opened? I really need to reload the file every time I want to see the latest version?

Developer Response ,

There was a bug in that file content was not refreshed when opening from the Recent Files list. I've fixed this in v1.18.1. Please contact or open a GitHub issue if you continue to have problems.
