"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].

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.
