Meh. Very basic, tries to be more than what it can actually be. If it concentrated on just being a nice clean simple notepad it would be perfect. But it makes a half-hearted attempted to be much more. Too bad, I really want notepad.exe for Google Drive!!!

Works pretty well as a basic text editor. I don't use it for code so can't comment on the code-specific features. Main irritation is the completely unnecessary "Are you sure?" prompt to save a document, while closing the app's tab or window just blows away your work without a prompt or a chance to recover. Isn't this backwards from the way it should work? UPDATE: Also problematic is the periodic app request to reauthorize access to Google Drive, whose settings show it already authorized. Worse, clicking the Login and Authorize button fails, with no way to intervene and fix whatever has gone wrong. That's pretty annoying.

Always pesters you with 'Do you really, really want to save this document' prompt. Can't turn it off. Needs Save means SAVE_IT_DAMIT! option. Hit the "Visit Website" button to ask the developer. It opened a blank document. Great way to prevent being pestered for tech support. Looking for another simple text editor

This is the only text editor / notepad for Google Drive. The only downsides are the small size of the editing window and how it's defined in px rather than percent or em.

PRO: (a) Works well as a text editor integrated with Google Drive. (b) Has many potentially helpful options. CON: (1) Not a secure website, i.e., their site, and therefore the app, is not encrypted--it is not using Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS). Don't type anything private or confidential when using this app! (2) No automatic save. Don't forget to SAVE!

It does what it's supposed to: edit text files within Drive! It works, but it's not very pretty and it doesn't have any fancy features. For a lot of people, that's perfect :)

This editor is the best that I have found yet, but STILL LOOKING. I am looking for a text editor that allows voice input and printing. Voice input is not converted to text. I am using SpeechNotesX Voice-Typing on a Chromebook. Printing is a two-step process, in which it opens up a separate Tab to print from, but at least that is better than others I have tried. I would agree that losing your text when closing a tab is a big disappointment.

Ads on both sides of the application. Can't trust this for anything that's remotely private.

Close, but it insists on saving the file in UTF-8 format and not the format I specify. Pity, it was very close to useful...
