Defined the FTP connection to my web site and was able to download, edit and upload one file, but now when I open the FTP connection it shows the list of files, but selecting one does not enable the Download option! I have tried several times, even quitting the app and launching it again.

While the app works beautifully on the iPad Air, it does not perform equally on the iPad Pro.

When I attempt to "Open" a file that resides in a cloud drive (Google, One Drive, etc.), I get an error message: "Failed to launch 'Google Drive' The document picker 'Google Drive' failed to launch (0)."

This same error message pops up regardless of the drive or app I attempt to access.

I can select a file from my Google Drive app and "Open in" Textastic successfully, but can't "Open" from the drive.

I have Dropbox sync a .bib (BibTeX) file, since I'd like to be able to edit it on various devices. I assume the proper workflow is to open the file in Textastic using the menu in the Dropbox app. But when I do so, Textastic creates a copy of the file and also renames it to .a4d. Is this behavior intended?

I am using logitech keys to go keyboard with bluetooth connecting. everything works great first. But after I upload file to the server, all the alphabet keys became non-responsive. but the other function keys such as home, multi-task, spotlight search still work. And in other apps, all the keys work.

I had to click on the "File" buttom to "refresh" app to get the keys functioning again. Not sure if it is just this keyboard but hope you could fix this bug. Thanks!!!

I would love to see a design mode like dreamweaver that lets me edit the design instead of just the code, and it makes the code. I like to use that to create HTML code by just typing like a normal text editor, then I can copy the code into my web system afterwards. that would be a really cool feature.

Does this app supports split view multitasking for the iPad Air 2?

It's another interesting take on how to handle touchbased text navigation and I'm rather fond of it. Best of all, it's opensource! https://github.com/adamhoracek/KOKeyboard/
