Needs UNIVERSAL PURCHASE!!
This app is great and I want to make it my main text editor but why do I have to buy it twice to use on my MacBook? It’s not impossible to make apps universal anymore as Apple has officially created a way to do so between Mac and iOS. Dropped another star, It needs to be able to open folders from more places. Not just iCloud. I would like to open folders from places like OneDrive and I am unable to do so. If I have a Windows PC and upload files and folders to OneDrive to continue work on a different device, I am unable to do it with this app. The only solution would be to go to the OneDrive app on the iPad and transfer the files to iCloud to work with this app, however that presents many problems like two different sets of folders (one for iCloud and one for OneDrive). Please fix and also add universal purchase so I can download on a MacBook. These fixes would make it the perfect text editor for me definitely worthy of 5 stars in my opinion.

Texastic Gets Better & Better
I bought this app when I got my 9.7" iPad Pro to have a basic text editor that supported some code highlighting. Since then, the app has added SFTP directory based uploading and downloading, a SSH terminal, and some best in class iOS in-place file editing support. And works like a charm on my shiny 11" just as well as it ever did. When you take all of this and how well it integrates with Shortcuts and other apps, you basically have a productivity machine with this. As an iPad Pro lover and constant user, I am glad bought this app when I did to help support something really great. My only problem is that I really don't see how it can keep getting better! But as new features are added to iOS, this app always keeps up to take advantage, so I can't wait to see where the developer takes it in the future. I would give it more stars were they available.

PHP Include Support
This is an amazing IDE. I have been doing most of my coding on my iPad Pro thanks to Textastic. I have run into an issue though. I recently updated my site to PHP so I can take advantage of server-side development. Unfortunately, when I am editing a PHP page that has “Includes” and I want to preview the page, the included pages are not read. This is more of an annoyance than anything. I frequently preview my pages to see how they look as I tweak CSS and other features. Not having included pages is a problem for me because I keep all my site header, navigation and footer code in separate PHP pages and simply include them. As you might guess, all my styles, scripts, etc. are not available because the includes are not read. I hope this makes sense. Thanks for an amazing tool. I hope this can be worked into a future build. Thanks, Tony
