"Javascriptista", but actually ,much more than that


This app just made me leave other editors, and made me to start moan about other apps's interfaces. The mouse-like keyboard cursor control, now with Files functionality , your custom snippets , all of this are advantageous over other apps. Your PC interaction time will significantly reduce after stating using ftp options.

Just keeps on getting better


As a developer I can happily state that this is the best app on the app store. I have tried Coda, Textastic and others and this is hands-down the best.
The file picker is easy and the context highlighting works well. Love it!

Awesome Editor


Has made a huge difference to working on my Pi Projects. Best few quid (bucks) I’ve spend in a long time. Highly recommended.
