Generally excellent; a few weaknesses and bugs

I’m using the app in a fairly superficial way, as not much more than a text editor. Still, I find several shortcomings:

- Occasionally, the app runs very slowly for no apparent reason; I have to close it and re-start it.

- I use the Find shortcut (Command + F) a lot on iPad; this does not work in the app.

- Highlighting large chunks of text sometimes results in the screen showing the highlight elsewhere than it actually is, which does not affect the accuracy of the highlighting, just its appearance.

- Sometimes the line spacing between paragraphs compresses when I close and then open a file.

- When I go to the beginning of a file using the keyboard shortcut the entire screen goes blank. (But if I press space it reappears.)

- When I first try to name a folder, it always exits naming mode before I can name it. (But it works on the next try.)

- In other apps, when I search a term or phrase, clicking the Return button takes me from one instance to the next. That doesn’t work in this app.

I’m probably forgetting some other weaknesses and bugs. None of them are important enough to cause me to stop using the app, but I do hope the programmers can fix them.

On the other hand, I’m grateful for the ability to create layers of folders; this is not available in Pages.

Love this app!

I’ve tried many different text processing apps and this is the best one I’ve found. One feature is how well it handles copying and pasting the text from a web page into a new or existing document - it is simple, easy, and pastes the text without inserting line breaks or concatenating all of the text into one giant jumble that requires lots of editing. It also handles inserting and resizing jpg images. And it has many more features and functions than most other similar apps. Only thing that I think could be improved is the user interface navigation and menu structure - some of the apps features are a bit tricky to find until you become familiar using the app.

Hello! Thanks a lot for your feedback!

Epic formatting features! MLS, etc

Honestly...I haven't used the app yet. But I have to give huge accolades for any app that does the formatting this does for papers! Just to find an app with page numbering was difficult, even for MacOS - this has exactly what I want but never expected to find. Incredible!!

I'm about to go to grad school, I need the formatting!!! Headers, page numbers, etc. Yay! I lived on my iPad since the iPad 1 but I graduated from college decades ago, long before iPhones, iPads, and internet usage. I wasn't sure what I'd use now. I'm thrilled!

Any chance for a MacOS app? 😍

I've used their apps for many years and read latest reviews. So I'm okay with rating it at the top. I hope this one is maintained for a long time to come. I've had others that they haven't maintained.

Thank you for not using the subscription model!! And for creating such an incredibly useful app. Kudos.
