This is a fantastic editor

there could be more touch-specific controls/features, but for everything windows 8 styled, this is the best editor ever... While Sublime is still my desktop favorite, this metro app has everything I could ever want. Kudos to the developers!

I was just what I needed just seemed it was missing some customizations features I wanted, other that it is a swell program that I will use for quite a while :D

I wish this was good.

It does almost what I want, but every other time I hit the space bar - I'm a decent typist but nothing stellar - it skips. I did a side-by-side comparison and unless I slap the space bar on the type cover, it doesn't register where WordPad works fine. This is close enough to Notepad++ in a windows 8-style app that I really, really wish it actually worked.

nice, but...

There's a lot to like here, but I wish there was an option for wrapping the text.

Pretty Good Similar to Code Writer. Haven't had any problems with it YET, so far so good. If it gets a good steam of updates, that would be great. Reading previous reviews seems it used to cost some, but it is free now.

Excellent design, but unstable of late

I can't remember if there was an update lately that did it, but of late, Notepad RT no longer properly runs on my Surface RT. It reaches the home screen and then crashes back to Start. My rating is based off of using Notepad RT previous to the crashing issue. I'd rate five once that's dealt with.

Needs some attention

I purchased the app back in December. At the time it was getting some regular updates and I saw the potential. I emailed support a few days ago to see if they are still supporting it. No reply. I think the app has been abandoned. Disapointing.

Perfect for keeping notes

I keep all of my notes in plain text files. This is a perfect text editor for that. Works and looks great.

A solid app!

Overall this is a solid code/text editor. Suggestions: - Clear the list of recently open files (individually or all) - Have an ad-supported free version

The scrolling needs to corrected. If you try to swipe up/down the editor selects text instead of scrolling and if you try to swipe up/down on your mouse the application closes. So you have to use the small scroll bar on the side. Features are very basic - wish its feature set were more along the lines of Notepad++.
