# Taio

Taio is a modern app for text editing, offers features for clipboard, text editor, and actions.

## Main Features

### Clipboard

Taio takes clipboard data as one of the input sources, you can capture it quickly for *temporary* use. Saved records can be synchronized across your iOS devices using iCloud, we also provide beautiful home screen widgets for better experience.

### Editor

Taio provides a full-fledged **Markdown** editor, it supports `CommonMark` and `GitHub Flavored` standards. Instead of telling you everything, we would like to highlight some great stuff here:

- Multi-Tab editing
- Multiple color themes
- Toolbar for beginners
- Outline view
- Wikilinks and backlinks
- Export to multiple formats
- Dynamic text in snippets
- Open file system that can be accessed by other apps
- Syntax highlighting for common programming languages

There are more interesting features we cannot cover here, please try it out!

### Actions

Text actions in Taio is a powerful mechanism to provide extensibility for both **clipboard** and **editor**, it works the same as the `Shortcuts` app.

You can build your own workflows using several action blocks, with support for variables and control flows.

Furthermore, if the built-in actions don't meet your needs, you can even write action blocks using **JavaScript**. The JavaScript engine in Taio is powered by JSBox, it provides tons of API bindings to interact with iOS.

A very easy-to-use text editor

I've been trying to find a useful text editor on iOS, but after a long search, I still haven't found it. I've tried word processing tools such as impression notes and notions. Finally, I chose note, which I think satisfies a lot. Requirements, but notion is poorly optimized in the iOS app. When I tried to use nonion to write essays today, but found that Noion could not connect to the server, I chose Taio, and the effect of Taio was completely unexpected. But I think Taio still has some shortcomings. I hope Taio can support web-side versions. In addition, I hope to refer to JSBOX in subscription mode, which will further stimulate my subscription.
我一直试图在iOS上找到一个好用的文字编辑器,但是经历了很长时间的寻找我还是没有找到,我尝试过印象笔记和notion之类的文字处理工具,最后我选择了notion,我认为notion满足了我很大程度上的需求,但是notion在iOS app中优化很差,当我今天试图使用notion去写随笔,但是发现notion无法连接到服务器的时候,我选择了Taio,Taio的使用效果完全出乎了我的意料。但是我认为Taio还存在者一些不足,我希望Taio能够支持网页端版本,另外,在订阅模式上我希望能够参照JSBOX,这会更加刺激我的订阅。

Great Obsidian Companion

My favorite way to take typed notes on my Mac is with the Obsidian app, but that app lacks a mobile counterpart; this is where Taio comes in. With Taio, I can edit the markdown files that I create in Obsidian by taking advantage of its iCloud Drive integration. The provision of a plethora of editor themes enhances the user experience and the support for back links is second to none and is what makes this app feel tailor-made for Obsidian users.

The two main features that I wish Taio had were Dropbox sync, since I prefer to use Dropbox as opposed to iCloud for cloud storage, and native Spotlight search, so that I can open a document in Taio directly from Spotlight.

Regarding appearance, it would be nice if the themes worked in the preview and editor modes, since they currently only work in editor mode. Additional themes or the ability to make your own themes would be cool as well, but I don’t consider those to be must-have features.

Overall, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed using Taio and consider it to be one of the three best note-taking apps on iOS, right alongside Bear and Craft Notes.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback!

Locations other than iCloud are something we are thinking about, as well as customizable rendering templates.

Speaking of Spotlight support, we will probably add it after we implemented full text search.

Confusing, limited directory access

Judging by all of their glowing reviews, it is possibly that I am just not the right user for this app. As a new user, I found the app difficult. I did figure out how to create, edit and preview a markdown file, but not before running into many, many buttons, which, when clicked show a “pro only” message without telling what it does and how it woks- frustrating, confusing. It is also not immediately clear how to get in and start writing, which seems not the best for a writing app (my favorite markdown editor at the moment is typora, which is super clean, but not available for ipad). It seems taio might be doing something interesting with their clipboard feature, but I could not figure out how it works. Lastly, as others have mentioned, there seems to be no way to access files on google drive / dropbox which limits the utility of this app for my purposes.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. We will be clearer for what does Taio Pro do in subsequent updates.

Support for other locations is planned, however, we have something to say here.

In an ideal world, every cloud service should provide a perfect File Provider (E.g., Working Copy), and then, editors or document apps can get their files without doing anything. The story here is that so many services lack of implementation for File Provider, so we decided to support iCloud **first**.

Feel free to send any feedback to us, best wishes.
