Great code editor, and I was impressed at how well the JS/HTML preview works. Sometimes it's nice to be able to review a codebase and make small changes when away from my main PC. I can recommend Syncthing-fork to connect the two. Recently I've been having this problem where files can't be saved or loaded at all. I can see folders in the file hierarchy, but no files. I don't think I messed up file permissions. The result is that I haven't used this program in a while. Awaiting an update.

Also it doesn'

Soft keyboard text-selection keys don't work for quick copy/paste and modifying code, and the home and end keys don't do anything, making it slower to work with than similar editors. However, it has the best and most comprehensive syntax highlighting and code completion I've ever seen in a mobile app.
