Spaces instead tabs for indentation (soft tabs)

It would be nice to have the option to indent using spacing instead of tabs.

Or do you mean that hitting the "tab" key should insert spaces instead of a tab character?
Prefer indent using: Spaces / Tabs
Tab key: Indents always / Indents in leading Whitespace / Inserts tab character
These are standard editor options, for example Xcode 3, emacs, vim all have similar options.
So you can either disable TextExpander support in Textastic's settings (if you haven't installed TextExpander on your device) or you can deactivate this in the TextExpander app.
We are requesting the soft-tabs feature like the one in Textmate, which convert tab key strikes into a sequence of predefined spaces.
It is really useful and I dare say indispensable to Python and Ruby programmers.
Please make our life's easy And implement soft tabs on the app :)
