What's New

Version 7.1.2

- Sometimes the folder hierarchy from the last session was not restored properly on app launch.
- When uploading a hierarchy of folders from an external directory (for example opened from Working Copy) to a remote server, only files in the top-level directory where correctly linked to the remote connection.
- The keyboard shortcut Ctrl-W did not work in terminal connections.
- JavaScript console: "console.log(window)" did not work, "Script Error" was shown in the console instead.

Klasse App für HTML

Hatte bei den kostenlosen Apps immer das Problem dass das Dateienmanagement nicht gut war. Bei dieser App funktioniert alles einwandfrei. Nutze die App vor allem wegen HTML Programmierungen.
Kann diese App nur weiterempfehlen.

TOP App, TOP Support

An einem Sonntag innerhalb von 15 Min. eine Problemlösung zu bekommen, ist nicht zu toppen! 👍

Solche Entwickler haben es mehr als verdient, für ihre Arbeit nicht nur Geld sondern auch Lob zu bekommen. 😃

Genau was mir fehlte, mit dieser App wird das Ipad für mich erst richtig produktivi.
