Customer Reviews


I bought Diet Coda some time ago, but just started really digging into it today. The app is riddled with bugs - the worst is that I can only publish one update to my server and any subsequent updates fail to publish correctly, so that I have to kill and restart the app to get it to work for another update.

It sounds like Panic is working on an update – I look forward to some fixes for these serious issues. This app has a great concept and solid execution, but is not performing as it should on the latest version of iOS.


The developer seems to have abandoned this App, which says a lot about the integrity of Panic, Inc. That said, I won't be purchasing any of their products EVER. This App simply doesn't work anymore and Panic, Inc. is very aware of this but they still refuse to fix the problem and/or release any working updates. Instead, they've moved on to releasing other Apps with total disregard for their existing customers and our right to working software that we spent our hard earned money on.

Not ready for prime time

Leaves a ton to be desired compared to its desktop counterpart. Editor is a resource hog: turn off syntax highlighting if the file is over a couple hundred lines, else the app will stall and eventually crash. As others have said, needs Git and SVN support plus PIN or password protection. Disappointing. UPDATE: Terminal feature has big issues on iOS 8. Panic is aware but seems in little hurry to fix it. Abandonware?
