Ratings and Reviews
exactly what i was looking for. took a while for it to behave as the old version of textedit on mac after fiddling with settings but looks quite powerful if you want to use all the bells and whistles.
Apple this is how you make a textedit app.
So powerful and still remains simple and unthreatening. This is a very useful app to have, I cannot believe it is free.
Nice and simple
Very handy and easy to use.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
