Lag when navigating through directories


There’s a considerable pause when navigating through the directories and loading files in cloned projects. This pause does not exist if I disable networking (e.g. put the phone in airplane mode) which tells me that the app is doing a network call whenever you change directories/load files. The lag is pretty annoying. I don’t want to have to put the phone in airplane mode just to use this app.

Save function has a serious problem!


I have worked through both SSH and Dropbox. Whenever I save some editing, it seems to store and reflect at a glance. But, after a few minute, it get back to the original file. I keep editing several time and am now exhaustive.
I found other users who suffer from the same phenomenon in reviews.

This is a critical problem, and it prevents from using this editor despite its awesome functionality!!

Save doesn’t always save properly


I like the VIM support. The keyboard and keyboard toggle could use some work, but what really is annoying is that the save doesn’t seem to save all the time. Not even local files. I have re-edited a file three times and every time I go back (after clicking save) I have lost all my work.

Won’t use until addressed with either a response that clears things up or an update is released.

Having the ability to access new Files app would be helpful or better integration of saving to other locations than itself.

Good Luck because this editor is nice.
