What's New in Version 4.3.6
* Bug fixes with Activation & Dropbox
Smart & capable despite some hiccups & age
A couple of small bugs can make the app appear broken (see below), yet it's largely more capable than the popular and polished Textastic.
The workarounds that keep it working for me:
• When it appears to crash on launch, I'm able to get into it via the app switcher.
• A file can appear almost entirely blank, showing nothing but its first line; momentarily rotating the device fixes this for me.
The app's functions are more customizable and robust than those of Textastic. FTPOnTheGo Pro has simpler, less-confusing directory navigation than Textastic 5.3.1 on iPhone (where the file-transfer and local-files views can be readily mistaken for one another), and simple edits to a remote file needn't involve fussing with a local copy as Textastic requires. (Textastic also requires more care to make sure a file gets uploaded to the correct location—!)
On the other hand, updates have been quite rare, while Textastic has smoother performance and a more pleasant editing environment, plus some support for VoiceOver.
FTP On The Go PRO has a good FTP toolkit. If and when those bugs are fixed and it has a little more polish (better VoiceOver integration, more sharing options, etc.) I'll be happy to give it five stars.
Stopped working. No response from customer support!
I used to love using this app both on my iPad and iPhone. For some reason, it has just stopped working properly. The site directory doesn't appear when logging in, unless you press the refresh button. However, I can no long upload or download files. It just hangs on all communication operations. Unfortunately, I haven't had a response from customer support (contacted them twice now), so I had to make a change to Coda. I hope they ultimately fix whatever is wrong with the app so they can retain their customer base.
Confusing, spooky, seems to have a mind of its own, crashes
I don't know why the behavior of this app keeps changing. Why does clicking links in the browser view tell me "download complete" instead of opening the link? It wasn't doing that a minute ago. Why does it throw up a number entry bar to play the web view icon evenry time I save a document? I have no idea, and I'm not going to waste my time trying to guess any more.
