          Review ofCodioCodio

          I think, this is the best online IDE nowadays. I'm using it for months. Fast, cool, easy to use. I have a license for PhpStorm (but I'm using it for Nodejs/Angularjs now), but I almost never use my desktop IDE because Codio is the first for which can really replace it. I simply don't need anything else. And for $8 you can work on unlimited private projects! That's cool. I also loved the support and the way they communicated, when there was a problem with the service. Their communication was honest and quick.

          Review ofCodeboxCodebox

          I have used this product for over a year now and I find it a wonderful addition to my workflow. However, in the time that I have been using it, Shpakovski have updated Codebox 0 times. No upgrades. No additions to the code base. No extended customisation. No extended personalisation. Nothing. Poor form Codebox.

          When I tried to clone my GitHub repo, it failed with a mysterious error. Grrr.
