Editorial is a plain text editor for the iPad with powerful automation tools and a beautiful inline preview for writing Markdown.
You can combine a large selection of simple text processing actions into your very own workflows — all in an intuitive drag'n'drop interface that makes it easy to see what's happening.
* Inline Markdown Preview – You can always swipe left to switch to a full HTML preview.
* Extensible with Workflows – More than 50 configurable actions can be combined into powerful workflows for extending Editorial's feature set.
* Scriptable with Python – You can also integrate scripts into your workflows for even more advanced automation.
* Sync with Dropbox – You can store your documents in a configurable Dropbox folder, and even view comparisons with older versions to see the progress you've made.
* Smart Keyboard – The extended keyboard was specifically designed for writing Markdown and includes all the special characters you need.
* Snippets – Quickly insert frequently-used pieces of text by typing abbreviations. Snippets can include dynamic text like 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.
* Full Documentation – Editorial comes with a complete set of documentation for all the different workflow actions and Python modules. Help is directly accessible from the workflow and Python editors.

Editorial has allowed me to delete all the other note-taking and text-editing programs I'd been using from my phone and iPad. I've always been one to jot down little notes, and this type of program makes it far easier to do that and to use the search function to actually find info later.
Of the many apps I've tried, Editorial has the best ability to grow with you, allowing you to use Markdown or MultiMarkdown, to control many settings, and my favorite, to have Markdown headings work as an interactive table of contents. As a graduate student, I write long essays in here, so having an easy way to jump between sections is golden.
Before Editorial, I always hemmed and hawed when recommending similar apps to people, since I was never fully satisfied—one app would always have a feature another didn't. But now I happily just recommend this one.
My only suggestion for an improvement would be that the new "@done" strikethrough work in the Markdown mode as well as the TaskPaper one, but that's an extremely minor wish.
Best iOS app ever
Can't even begin to say how important this app is to my work. Can do literally anything you can think of doing with text/documents, and with x-callback-url support, it's become the command center of my iPad, jumping from this app to the other with a single keyboard shortcut (that I create myself!), sending text hither and yon, it's ridiculous. New TaskPaper support is great, don't have to use the cumbersome TaskPaper app anymore, thank God. One glitch that's currently in there, one-line pop up text dialogs don't bring the cursor focus to them, so I have to use my finger to focus into them after they've popped up. Sure this will be fixed soon. Thanks Ole, you are a genius.
great features, but...
The features are spectacular. However, it's only useable if you do not use iOS' split keyboard option and do not use the keyboard's predictive text option. If you have either of these features enabled when Editorial launches, it's keyboard extensions simply do not work--including the only mechanism for Undo. (If you find yourself in this state, you can get everything working by quitting Editorial, turning these features off, then re-launching Editorial--but that's a real pain.) This probably has to do with the fact that the app hasn't been updated in nearly a year, leaving one to wonder whether the app remains in active development. If the developer addresses this issue, I'll give it 5 stars, but until then, it's a 3.
