Use it for html and latex This seems like one of the better editors for Android, especially if you need syntax highlighting for a number of different languages/markup. The problem is that performance is atrocious with syntax highlighting enabled, even for pretty small files! Maybe it's better if the paragraphs have hard breaks for keeping the lines short, but if you're used to dynamic wrap, watch out for horrible performance! Without syntax highlighting, there's really no point in buying this over using some free, solid text editor.
Looks good, but how to spell check? Hello. I switch on the writer mode, but how do I spell-check what I have written? Language is selected to English (UK), I type some words incorrectly, but there is no spell check action whatsoever. I really like many bits about it, but spell checking does not seem to work, or is it that I do not understand something?
The best Android code editor thus far. First, this is the only quality code editor I could find that could indent AND unindent code. You can't write software if you can't unindent blocks of code. If Quoda could unindent, I might have stayed with Quoda. (Seems the author fixed the "Save As" prompt problem, but when you first open the app it forgets the respective servers of your "recent" files.) Unlike what another reviewer said, SFTP and FTP do work. Would be nice if CTRL-F and CTRL-G worked for searching. Works with Samsung's "Multi Window" which is useful if you want to split screen with a browser window. (Hotkey problem I mentioned before, I think it's a problem with Bluetooth, I need to do more research on that.)
Pretty alright Got this cause its nice and seemed to have all the functionality i needed. However, im getting an error when trying to clone a repository: cannot open git-upload-pack. Can u guys fix this please? Other than that, awesome!
Starting to Get Slow DroidEdit Pro has been my main and only PHP/HTML/CSS editor for quite sometime now. It has many useful and nice features. It's customizable syntax highlighting setting remains untouched by any editors out there. However, as my project files become large, DroidEdit Pro has started to get slow as well in terms of responsiveness. I believe this could be because of syntax highlighting engine that was used before, but I'm not sure entirely so I could very well be wrong. I still love using DroidEdit Pro and would love to remain as my only editor, but because of the lags, I've started looking at other editor apps to support DroidEdit Pro on larger files. I still think it deserves 5 stars though, it's an excellent app, just not on large files now.
SFTP not reliable - very much broken! SFTP left panel is glitchy (often fails to connect), leaving the password blank doesn't work (no prompt for password). Since most of my code is on a remote server, SFTP is a must. Since the Pro version promised SFTP support and is unable to deliver said support, I unfortunately must give this 1 star. After writing this review, I'm heading straight for the refund button. Thank goodness for Google's new refund policy - this "pro version" was so annoying that it would've taken more than 15 minutes to figure out the poor quality of the app.
