Great Development App that has many Features


This is a very impressive app, and thanks for the new update, I love the interactive JavaScript console!

The only problem/suggestion I have is when entering commands, etc into the new JavaScript console, and I need to type quotes, the keyboard by default types the rich text “fancy” quotes, not the plain text ones... so I get errors. And actually, now that there is the interactive console, I think it would just be a big improvement to have the extra row of ‘keys, on top of the keyboard, (just like when you’re in regular editing a file mode).

Loving this app, thanks again for the update, I will use the js console a lot!

Great price and features


For the price and feature set, this app is worth it.

My only complaint is aesthetic and minor: I find the font used in the majority of the UI (menus, labels, descriptions, etc.) to give off a very “amateur” look and feel. It’s like if were to have the option of writing this review in Comic Sans font. You would probably take me less seriously.

A feature request I have is to add support for importing/ cloning a git repo given the HTTPS url (from GitHub, Gitlabs, etc.)

Well Done


Worth it 100%. I love the fact that I can connect via sftp and edit my files. This is the most useful app on my iPhone. Then on top of that it has a nice theme to it, different colored text for variables, attributes, etc. Very impressed!
