Even though I use my iPad less for work and more for enjoyment, it is nice to have apps on it that are capable of doing work too. As a web designer, it feels good to be able to pull up and make changes to a client website directly from my iPad should that need occur. That being said, I don’t have any plans to start doing website work just on the iPad.
Last year I reviewed Textastic, another web editor for the iPad. I have been perfectly happy with it, until I saw one feature of Markup that drew my attention to it. I can save “sites” in it. Being able to save a site with its FTP configuration and working with its files separately from another site is an incredible experience, if not a must.
The editor is clean and simple but very functional. Just pull up a file remotely, no need to store in locally, and start working on it. While this does need an internet connection, it is the best way to work on sites that are now online that you need to edit. If you just want an app to code in locally, this is not the one for you.
In summary, Markup offers you a good value for the price it cost, giving you a nice site editor on the iPad that you know will do its job well. If you work with websites regularly, I think this is a good buy.
