Love this app!

I’ve tried many different text processing apps and this is the best one I’ve found. One feature is how well it handles copying and pasting the text from a web page into a new or existing document - it is simple, easy, and pastes the text without inserting line breaks or concatenating all of the text into one giant jumble that requires lots of editing. It also handles inserting and resizing jpg images. And it has many more features and functions than most other similar apps. Only thing that I think could be improved is the user interface navigation and menu structure - some of the apps features are a bit tricky to find until you become familiar using the app.

Love it, despite glitches

This is the best writing app out there for the iPad. Though far from the inclusive editing capacity of Windows Word, it is still as good as it gets for the iPad, with many great features. I give it a four star and half stars because it often becomes slow as you type, and you have to wait for it to catch up to catch up, and ditto with the editing. There are other quirks, like I can only use an older document to start a new document, even if I am up to date with IOS lasted version, and have the most recent version of Textilus. If I begin a new document, it remains blank when I try to write. Then there is the picture addition problem. After I’ve used a document for awhile, four times or so, I have to hunt back in my files for one I’ve used less, because the pictures stop printing out. Fortunately I have been using it for several years, and have lots of old documents to reuse. Their Tech support has never been able to solve these for me. I use it daily to write out my spiritual journal entries. Using the computer is constricting, noisy and not conducive to a quiet writing solitary space. I use also use it for writing out teachings to share, recipes, and other general information. It is invaluable to me, and I’ve found nothing else available out there has come close. Between textilus and the iPad, I am rarely on the computer anymore.

Generally excellent; a few weaknesses and bugs

I’m using the app in a fairly superficial way, as not much more than a text editor. Still, I find several shortcomings:

- Occasionally, the app runs very slowly for no apparent reason; I have to close it and re-start it.

- I use the Find shortcut (Command + F) a lot on iPad; this does not work in the app.

- Highlighting large chunks of text sometimes results in the screen showing the highlight elsewhere than it actually is, which does not affect the accuracy of the highlighting, just its appearance.

- Sometimes the line spacing between paragraphs compresses when I close and then open a file.

- When I go to the beginning of a file using the keyboard shortcut the entire screen goes blank. (But if I press space it reappears.)

- When I first try to name a folder, it always exits naming mode before I can name it. (But it works on the next try.)

- In other apps, when I search a term or phrase, clicking the Return button takes me from one instance to the next. That doesn’t work in this app.

I’m probably forgetting some other weaknesses and bugs. None of them are important enough to cause me to stop using the app, but I do hope the programmers can fix them.

On the other hand, I’m grateful for the ability to create layers of folders; this is not available in Pages.
