Ratings and Reviews
Hardly crashes, compiles fast, all around is a good app. There are a few people giving bad ratings because of autocomplete, this is stupid, the app has tap to complete under the text, and even if you don’t use that option, any good programmer should be able to type a few extra letters.
I love this app. I got it a whole ago but just started using it yesterday and I made this little question game where it asked you a question and then you answer and it either says fail or good then clears all text. Love the freedom in the app and love how it makes it so you can make your own text based games and also (if you have $$$) picture games (not really video games though)
Does not autocomplete or anything.
