Thanks for the update! It's a great app for editing YML config files for my Minecraft Bukkit server.

Awesome update!

Thanks for the update, it looks great! Still the best text/code editor on iPhone

Great, but needs git

Top notch editing, but I don't store any of my code on consumer file storage. It's all git.
