Plain Text is a simply text editor and is released by Hog Bay Software.
The application opens to a demo document. You can then link the application to your dropbox account. You can use this application without Dropbox, but it loses some of its key uses without it. You can select from the options when you wish to SYNC with dropbox, so can make sure your files are always up to date.
Plain Text allows you create new folders and files and to use the application in Full screen mode, but that is as complex as it gets.
The application can also link to textexpander if you wish to use this product as well.
The user interface is simple and clean, once dropbox is set up on the application you do not have to think about it again.
There are no export option, but you can access the files via the file sharing within iTunes if you do not want to use dropbox.
On the upside:
- Simple User Interface.
- No bells and whistles, just the options you need.
On the downside:
- Really needs a dropbox account to make the most of this application (this is free as well)
- Some additional export options would be nice, but again not vital.
Overall, this is an excellent application and as it is universal works well on both iPhone and iPad, but due to its size iPad is the most productive. This is a great for people who just want to write down ideas and information in plain text and then use it later for projects elsewhere.
