I install this app on all my devices. If I need to transfer text from one device to another, it's a quick copy and paste away. It's about as nominal as a text editor could be. At $2.50 USD for the ad free version, one little bar sitting at the bottom of the text field is hardly anything to complain about. I've never worked on code with it, but for viewing code, it works just fine. All the functions are there, you just have to find them.

Saves files to its own directory instead of where they were opened from (so opened file is not overwritten as expected). Ad is large and obtrusive, taking up a significant amount of space, leaving very little room to see what you're doing when the keyboard is open, which will be most of the time in an editor. And it even blocks the app's hints so you can't read them.

I like it at first glance. My major objection is that it is only has two sizes, for a smart phone or full screen. It needs to support more than just those two settings. I am using it on a chromebook. And I primarily want to use it as a cloud text editor. It would be nice if I select a non-text type document that it would use the default (other tool to open it - eg pdf, jpeg, etc.) editor for that type of document. Keep working on it. I am hopeful.
