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.

OKay.. but don't edit certain file types. Also does not handle Linux/Win LF vs CRLFs well.. no contextual code coloring, column position, etc.

"Are you sure?" can be disabled in the Options. But it really needs an auto-save.

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!

Works just fine for me, but would really like the option of an auto-save to keep it in the style of Google Docs. Also, why is there not a mobile version? For those who asked: you _can_ untick the 'Are You Sure' save option in the Settings panel, then thereafter just click on [Save].
