Simple, Elegant and Effective

I never write reviews, but I just have for Subtext. To borrow a familiar phrase, this app “Just Works”. It is simple, easy to use, and everything works the way it should. I love that it integrates with my Dropbox files to on my iPhone and iPad. My thanks to the developer.

Picky about file names

Would be great, except it refuses to open or create many files based only on the file name. I don’t have the desire or time to constantly rename files before and after editing. A plain-text editor should open any file even if viewing it as character data results in a bunch of gobbledygook being displayed.

File name extensions are a 40year old relic of DOS. In most other operating systems, before and since, the dot and extension are just arbitrary characters like the first part of the name and mainly used for filtering searches.

Simple. Easy. Does what it says.

What can I say. Free - check. No data collected - check. Simple plain text editor - check. Can print - check.

Great little app. Does exactly what I need.
