Mach Write is a powerful new RTF, TXT, and PDF Editor (Rich Text Format, Plain Text, PDF) for iOS and OS X! Featuring full iCloud document synchronization, RTF in multiple styles, sizes, and colors; as well as PDF Viewing/Creating/Annotation; and TXT files in addition to supporting nearly 15 plain text code formats; Mach Write makes it super easy to create in many different formats while still being incredibly powerful! And the best part is Mach Write is free for iOS and only $3.99 (U.S.) on OS X!

Functional, but needs much fit-and-finish work.

The Mac app doesn’t follow OS X interface conventions. Overly-saturated icons are thrown into the title bar, toolbars can’t be customized, and there isn’t a Preferences area to adjust settings.

I’m all for — and excited about — the multi-device sync, but for day-to-day use on the mac, this app isn’t where it needs to be in terms of fit-and-finish. I spend my days in text editors, and I want that writing environment to be a reasonably attractive one.

Convert RTF to HTML - really!!!

I copy selected text out of a reference app that I use daily to use them in web pages and the copied text that lands in the clipboard is RTF format. I need it in HTML format. THIS APP does that for me very easily and cleanly. Worth every penny and a real time saver. I just discovered Mach Write today and I had to give it 5 stars because IT JUST WORKS.

PDF edit

Editing text in PDF’s does not work, the features says it does. Want money back, I need to edit text in a pdf. All this thing does is drag the whole page around.
