It finally worked!
Ok, I am updating my previous rating. Initially I could not make the app to connect to the FTP server. Although I checked everything in my desktop WinSCP, it still didn't work in Yelena. A few hours later, some hunch came into my mind. I went back to the setting and set the initial ftp directory, Yelena calls it "path" field, to /home/my user. Guess what, now it connects. Apparently unlike desktop clients, you cannot let this field blank in this app. You have to set the "path" field to your user folder.
I reduced one star for the lack of GUI intuitiveness, and one for giving me such a hard time for the connection setup. If it cannot work without Path field set, it should not try to connect until you enter a value.
An excellent editor for the iPad
I was probably predisposed to like this app, since it shares my wife's name, but I'm finding it very useful for short coding sessions when I don't feel like pulling out my laptop. The syntax highlighting is far better than it has any right to be, and it's helped me out with personal and work-related projects. I'd give the app five stars if I could edit my Dropbox files offline--the online-only access is, in my view, its only serious flaw.
This is a very nice program, but one fatal flaw kills it for me: it doesn't recognize .cc files as C++, and won't even let me edit one! Please add support for .cc files, or better yet, let the user add custom extensions themselves.
