Great Development App that has many Features

This is a very impressive app, and thanks for the new update, I love the interactive JavaScript console!

The only problem/suggestion I have is when entering commands, etc into the new JavaScript console, and I need to type quotes, the keyboard by default types the rich text “fancy” quotes, not the plain text ones... so I get errors. And actually, now that there is the interactive console, I think it would just be a big improvement to have the extra row of ‘keys, on top of the keyboard, (just like when you’re in regular editing a file mode).

Loving this app, thanks again for the update, I will use the js console a lot!

Great price and features

For the price and feature set, this app is worth it.

My only complaint is aesthetic and minor: I find the font used in the majority of the UI (menus, labels, descriptions, etc.) to give off a very “amateur” look and feel. It’s like if were to have the option of writing this review in Comic Sans font. You would probably take me less seriously.

A feature request I have is to add support for importing/ cloning a git repo given the HTTPS url (from GitHub, Gitlabs, etc.)

Wait to buy!

Love the design of this app. However, I find myself always force closing and reopening trying to delete a folder off my ftp. If I don’t force close it will force close itself. ALSO, you cannot delete a folder that has files. You literally have to delete each file then the folder. Would recommend if it wasn’t limited like this but I’d say please don’t charge 8.99 for an app that doesn’t offer a way to delete a whole folder.

And doesn’t always respond to a click and KEEPS FREEZING!
