Ratings and Reviews

Best of the bunch!

Rose Johal

Alrighy, I tried the peers and aText wins hands down. Only bug I found is it does not capitalise the first letter of any fresh document in any app. It does capitalize the first letter of sentences. Maybe it only recognise to capitalise after a period? Minor bug really.

Thanks for an awesome app at fair price.
