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.

Hello! Thanks a lot for your feedback!

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.

Just went from 5 to 1

I’ve been using this app for a while. So far it does everything a word processing app should without a bunch of filler and junk to wade through. Every time I’ve found an app even marginally good for saving written materials, it either goes away or they change it and my stuff is lost. Please leave this one alone Apple! It works , it’s simple and there is no where else to save this stuff.

Why downgrade to 1?
I just found out it lost a book I was writing!
I accidentally found some other files but can’t get back to them. It says 25 files but most are their junk, I can’t find except the one I just put on and now I’m glad I printed it cause my book is gone

The improvements rated an increase in stars. I still don’t trust it, so I back up to a real computer if it’s important, or print. I can’t do that with a book, and Apple still makes if hard to use this as a real word processing program . If they did, it’d be great. The problem is Apple seems to think these are game machines and no one would use it for serious work. But if you are disabled, and weight matters, you need this thing to function as a computer.

The other reason the stars are only 3 is because Apple has known for years the I pad and I pad pro have touch screen problems and have never seen fit to fix them . Instead of cute and often pain in the rear updates, why not actually fix the device ?
