Ratings and Reviews

Excellent app!


This app is great as it allows you to continue your work on the go. It’s seemless with building apps directly to your device. Plus, the dev is wonderful to speak with and is very knowledgeable. Also helped me figure out an issue I had quickly with no troubles at all.

All in all, this app is the only one of its kind and works very good. Can’t wait to see what they have in store for future updates!

Arrow keys on apple keyboard not working, one arrow key does not work

Linux rules

Arrow keys on apple keyboard not working, no fixes or upgrades
One arrow key does not work, you can go in one direction but not the other
Either up or down is broken on the physical keyboard, I forget which

Amazing game changing product


This is an exciting product and exactly what I've been searching for. I initially had some problems using the latest xcode 8.3 with dringend, but after reporting this, Josh quickly solved my problem. I'm now, like others, looking forward to the promised storyboard support to make this tool complete. This tool finally makes moving to an iPad pro make sense.
