THE LONG VERSION:
Coda for iOS is a text editor, with syntax highlighting, clips, find replace, the works. But it also has a full file manager, allowing you to work with files locally or remotely. It has a cool keyboard with context keys and an amazing super loupe to set your cursor. It manages 'sites' so you can quickly get to work, and it'll even sync those sites. It'll preview your pages, of course. And we've also thrown in a full-featured SSH terminal. It's an incredible app.
SITES. The foundation of Coda iOS: create a site for each of your projects, local or remote, and quickly get to the files you need to edit. Better still, use our free Panic Sync service to sync these sites with Coda Mac and Transmit iOS, securely and quickly.
FILES. We've been building file managers for a really long time — we've got this. Local, remote, or any mix of the two. Edit, rename, duplicate, create folders, upload, download, you name it, you got it.
EDITING. Tap a file to land in our highly-optimized text editor, which syntax highlights your code with ease. Now, try this: move the insertion point. Whoa. That's the Super Loupe, magnifying magic we think is the best way to precisely set your cursor. And only Coda iOS has it.
CLIPS. Have a handful of code bits you re-use a lot? Tap the clips icon in Coda iOS, and load them in. Now you can insert them with a single tap.
FIND / REPLACE. Let’s say you accidentally inverted the values of your width and height tags. With our find and replace banner — and its breakthrough wildcard button — you can easily replace or swap or re-arrange your text.
TERMINAL. Really? Like, a full-featured SSH client built-in? Sure! Not only is it great value for your money, but it's also great help to getting your work done. Connect to your sites with a tap, and get the full-featured spot-on emulation of Prompt.
TABS. Quickly switch between your open documents. I know, it's obvious. But still.
CONTEXT KEYS. We've added a special section to your iOS keyboard that gives you the most useful, helpful special characters, automatically. It takes a lot of the pain out of writing code on a piece of glass.
AIR PREVIEW. A really special thing. Paired with Coda 2 for Mac, Coda iOS can act as a dedicated "preview screen", showing you a preview of what you're coding on the desktop — as you code. It's a great use for an iPad that's just sitting around, being lonely.
We've put a desktop-class amount of work into Coda iOS. It's truly a pro app. But, it's not hard to learn. And most amazingly, you're getting an incredible amount of power at a killer price. Buy it today!

Great App... But Nagware?
I love this app. But for $25 (I mean, really, TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS!?!?) I expect the developer to enjoy my money, confident in the fact that I like the product enough to pay $25 for it... instead of popping up a "Please Rate Us" window Every. Single. Time. I open the app. Therefore, 1 star. Great app, but extremely disrespectful of paying customers.
Edit to add... I did submit an email to the developer as requested. After two weeks, I have not gotten a response. And now Coda is harassing me to review it again. Every single time. So I will reiterate my one star review. And the suggested setting to turn off in-app ratings isn't on my device because I haven't upgraded to iOS 11 yet. This is a premium app at a premium price. I expect better. If it were $0.99 I would be more forgiving.
Edit 12/3 in response to developer... iOS 10.3 introduced the developer API to allow in-app ratings. But the user shut off setting was not introduced until iOS 11. That said, the new API is supposed to limit review requests to 3 per year or 1 per year if a review is left. So either Panic has implemented this API improperly or Apple has a bug in its API. I guess I'll upgrade to iOS 11 soon enough. I'm just waiting for a release of it that isn't completely filled with bugs. Seven bug fix releases for iOS 11 in less than 3 months isn't inspiring confidence for me.
Generally good, but needs work
Overall I like this app, but I am not sure if it is good enough for the price. I feel at this price there need to be more features and customizability. For example adding supports for additional languages.
My main complaint is with regards to external keyboards. The on-screen shortcut bar is useful while using the touch keyboard, but is a waste of space while using an external keyboard. Hiding the shortcut bar, disables the keyboard. Even for the simpler case of hiding the undo/redo clipboard, it reappears on the first keystroke. This is really bad design.
Amazing editor, no git support in 2017
Panic makes amazing software and I truly love their attention to detail, I’d love to use Coda all the time but without git support it only fits into an FTP workflow. Really looking forward to that git support! 🤙
