Editorial is a plain text editor for iOS with powerful automation tools and a beautiful inline preview for Markdown, TaskPaper, and Fountain documents. Features: * Inline Markdown/Fountain Preview – With Editorial's subtle syntax highlighting, you can see your document's formatting immediately while you're writing. And when you need a full HTML preview, it's just a swipe away. * Extensible with Workflows and Scripts – Select from over 50 text processing actions to create your own workflows for extending Editorial's feature set. For even more advanced automation, you can write Python scripts with an integrated code and UI editor. * Dropbox Sync – The sync folder is customizable, so you can easily edit your documents with multiple apps. * Smart Keyboard – The extended keyboard was specifically designed for writing Markdown and includes all the special characters you need. You can also control the cursor with simple swipe gestures. * Snippets – Quickly insert frequently-used pieces of text by typing abbreviations. Snippets can include dynamic text, e.g. the current date or clipboard contents. TextExpander™ snippets are also supported. * In-App Browser – If you need to do some quick research while writing, you don't have to leave the app for that. You can even open multiple tabs. * "Folding" allows you to quickly hide individual sections of your document while you're writing. *** *** *** “It would be hard to imagine a better editor, let alone recommend one that actually exists.” — The Verge “This is it. Editorial sets a new standard for third-party iOS automation, and, for me, there’s no going back.” — Federico Viticci, MacStories “Editorial just reinvented iOS text editing.” — Merlin Mann

    Not full screen on iPhone X. Dropbox sync doesn’t work.
  • Awesome Tool for taskpaper

    By llamaswill
    Holy cow this editor is amzing. I am using it for taskpaper and it just works. I can see it replacing a host of other tools I use. I would love an OS X version. My original 2 star review was about lack of iCloud support - still annoyed but dropboxed instead. Have to say, the better tracking of files and deletions in Dropbox is worth the hassle.
  • Folding Headers

    By IveTriedEmAll
    As far as I know, this is the only app in the App Store that supports folding headers. “What’s that?”, you ask. It means if you use a # Symbol to start a line, you can then tap the symbol to fold the section headed by that line. It essentially turns the app into an outliner. Super powerful. And that’s just one of many impressive features. This is my go to Dropbox editor.
  • Needs some work

    By Liktoprgm
    Just started using this app although I have owned it for awhile. The interface needs work. Would much prefer a preview/raw button over the swipe option. I use the app in conjunction with my Mac Pro. If I airdrop a .txt file I can open it in Editorial. If I airdrop a .md file my iPad takes me to the app store. This is irritating and requires me to rename files back and forth between .txt and .md.
  • Please add Box support!

    By amerritt81
    Great app with all the core capabilities and functionality I need, except the ability to link to Box and iCloud! Adding these features would make this a 5 star app!
  • My daily driver

    By james, james bond
    Couldn’t get my work done nearly as easily without editorial. Would pay 10 times as much for this app. I couldn’t script my way out of a paper bag, yet I bought pythonista only to support the dev.
  • A lot to like, but what about iCloud Drive?

    By msddsm
    There's a lot to like, and the potential for automation using Python is something I want to explore. Being able to open documents on a Mac without exporting is important to my workflow, and so deeper integration with iCloud Drive as primary storage would be very nice and seems like such an obvious feature in the Apple universe. I don't use Dropbox.
  • So confused

    By K J Lopez
    I have read the tutorials. Guess I still don't know how it works. I'll be back and update later, probably
  • Awesome writing app!

    By ScienceEdProf
    Now that it HAS been updated for IOS 10, this is my favorite writing app. I have several workflows that enhance how it works for me. If you like customizing your writing environment with snippets (text substitutions) and workflows (text manipulation scripts), then this editor might be for you. Since being updated, it CAN be used in split screen mode!
  • Won't open documents

    By Sisawat
    Will not open documents from Dropbox. Click, spinner shows, nothing happens.
