You should be able to share files over Bluetooth.

I have problems with my company not letting my iPad on the same network as my desktop and laptop. Therefore, I can't use WebDAV, FTP, or anything like that. Instead of having to plug in by USB to iTunes, it would be great if I could transfer files over Bluetooth!

Select name in the "New X Name" field when renaming or copying files or folders

It would be nice if the entire folder name or file name minus the file extension were selected by default when renaming or copying files or folders. It would speed the process up a bit.

Additional Coding

Issues with Syntax Highlighting: I'd really like to see:
- Color selection control. 
- Color coding on parameters,
- Curly-brace/Paren color control
-  Open/close matching
-  Block hide/show (defined by braces/parens)
-  Constants and Deffintion color coding
-  Operator color coding. 

iPad compatible forum

The support site for an ipad app should be compatible with the ipad. I had to compose this message in simplenote and paste it into the feeback box. Pretty silly.

It would be great to be able to work with csv's files.

since u made it support MEL, adding a backtick character would be even better ^^ thanks guys for this, amazing tool this is. missing them backticks big time though...

Please add support for .erb files

Matt Hamel 8 years ago • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 8 years ago 3
I currently open my ruby files from goodreader to textastic to view them but because .erb files are not supported, I cannot view them. Also if would be awesome if u could integrate into the open in feature of Dropbox.

Go lang support

Can you please add a Go ( http://golang.org/ ) support? I'd like to buy your application, but but this feature missing stops me.


FTP aus Startordner Ebenen hoch gehen

Direkt beim ersten Ftp Login hatte ich Probleme. Ich muss leider aus dem Startordner drei Ebenen nach oben. Mit dieser App geht das nicht, mit anderen Ftp Apps schon. Können Se das einbauen?

compatibilidad con los nuevos aspectos de css3, transiciones, animaciones, mediaqueryes

ademas falta el uso de @import, que no te autorrellena el codigo

usar los colores

lo mismo pasa con html5
