  • Great Programming App ★★★★★

    Just what I needed! Great job!

    - Sam
  • Very, very close to great ★★★★

    The fact that this app actually affords file access at all, so actual backup and project management becomes possible, really elevates this above evernote, all the post-it apps, and most anything else I've tried.

  • Excellent companion for my surface ★★★★★

    It has a lot of great features that will make it a must of any RT or win 8 device, it has great potential.

    - Carlos
  • Fantastic. ★★★★

    This app is awesome. Surprisingly complete, it seems to be better than my current code editor, Adobe Edge. I'll be switching to this as my full-time code writing application.
