clean, well-designed text editor

I’m always on the lookout for a simple file-based (vs database) text editor that doesn’t get in my way and allows me to use Dropbox, which contains all my files and quick access scratchpads. The settings are straightforward and support the simple purpose. It’s easy to open a new note/doc (directly from the home screen icon), and send its contents via the share menu, which duplicates the functionality of some far more complicated apps. Even though it hasn’t been updated in a couple years, it’s solid. hope development continues.

Hidden gem

Great little basic text editor. No big bulky features I don’t need. Opens and saves plain text files compatible with everything.

Best “hidden” feature, fully functional as a side-over app on my iPad. Need to jot down a quick note? Side it out, type, and slide it back. Perfect!
