Looks promising and even though it claims such there is no real access to other cloud services. You just keep seeing "there's a problem" claim when you try to access. Removed.

No print function

It would be useful if it had a print function.

New Notepad RT

The trial version worked but when I upgraded to the new program it crashes right after the initial execution. I restarted the surface RT but it still crashes when it first comes up.

very unstable

Every time I try to open a C source file or header the app crashes, it is really unusable. I wish I could get a refund.

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 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.

This app is exactly what I was looking for. The syntax highlighting is good with some very nice color schemes (clearly took some inspiration from people's favorite editors..). I would like for there to be some easier way to work on multiple files at once. Some sort of tabbed interface would be nice rather than pressing the back button to get to the open files.

Will be rated for 5 stars

Generally, this is quite a good editor. It will "eat" the market share of other editors if has following features: 1. Auto Complete & collapse for ",',(,{,[ or popular html tags. 2. Realtime error highlight 3. Have builtin FTP, SFTP (& SSH terminal for same SFTP account)

Great, just needs 1 thing

Using this for my programming and web development class in college. Its great for my programming class so far because all we deal with is simple programs. But for web development id like to see a function to have multiple pages open at once. Because when working with a website, you normally are editing multiple pages at once or referencing a previous page as a guideline. Multiple open pages would be a niiiice addition
