Pros

  • Useful for programmers who regularly work with a variety of text files in several environments

Cons

  • Not likely to replace the editor in your favourite IDE

Bottom Line

AptEdit is very much a programmer's tool, especially for those programmers who regularly work with a variety of text files in several environments, as opposed to those with a dedicated development environment specialised for their language of choice. It's a bit beyond "whim" purchase, but the 30-day trial should be more than enough to let coders determine if it's the tool for them.

Would you buy this?

AptEdit Pro is not the Swiss Army Knife of code editors.

AptEdit Pro is more like a pocket knife - fewer tools, perhaps, but when all you want is a knife, the other tools are just distractions. For HTML and many coding projects, AptEdit Pro is just what you need.

AptEdit Pro is not likely to replace the editor in your favourite IDE, but if you're editing a lot of code that doesn't often have an IDE - Perl files, for example, or HTML, or binary data - it can be extremely useful. It's also very small, designed to run from a USB drive - take your editor with you!

This makes AptEdit Pro an excellent choice for troubleshooters and network admins who may need to work on multiple desktops configured with who-knows-what over the course of the day.

All of the basics are in AptEdit Pro - syntax highlighting, tabbed (or MDI) display, a diff function, and so on. We found the hex display (used when opening binary files) to be intuitive and useful.

The HTML viewer does not need to laboriously launch your browser to show you a render of your markup - a nice touch (and one which adds to the lightweight nature of AptEdit Pro).

Code folding (the ability to collapse or expand blocks of code, such as 'if/else' blocks or entire subroutines) is also present in AptEdit Pro.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
