Simply the best

Simply the best editor out there :-))


Mobile editing done right

I’ve used this app for the past year now and I can say that although I don’t edit code often on my phone, when I do, it’s good to know that I can count on this app to do it properly. Good job Great app.


Pretty good, but it lacks 1 specific capability.

Overall, GoCoEditor is a pretty good mobile IDE; not only is it easy to use, but it's also very responsive, quite reliable, provides an array of useful features, and it's well maintained by its developer(s).

However, be that as it may, there is a certain capability I am interested in utilizing which has not been incorporated into this app. There are several other apps that do provide such a capability, and those apps do it well. Though, this app is much more responsive and is easier to use, so much so that if it were to provide the specific capability I require, it would become THE ultimate coding app, and would definitely warrant a 5-star rating from me. The capability in question is the ability to run PHP code and see its output.

But, until then, if you're also interested in an app that can run PHP code in a server-like environment, check out "DraftCode".
