Definitely the best html editing app in the Android market. The auto complete, line wrap, and find/replace features are a huge convenience but the best for me is the ability to access and save changes of web pages via FTP. The only thing missing, for me, would be a snippet feature, to quickly paste stored scripts. But, hey, I can't complain when I'm enjoying this remarkeable App!

Just bought after using free version for a while; wanted something with search/replace function to complement Dropbox app, which has none. Liked the improved functionality--day mode, better copy/paste, line wrap, and it tells you when there are no search matches found. Unfortunately...after working at first, kept crashing every time I did a "replace all"! So main reason I bought it seems nonfunctional now. :/ Back to free version, I guess; might try to get refund.

This ide crashes constantly. Yesterday it only crashed when I used the "common character bar" or if I long pressed on my keyboard for an alt character instead of switching keys to get it. This sucked but was bearable. Today no matter what key I press when I go to type the app crashes. Realissue for work flow and sanity
