Editorial is a plain text editor for iOS with powerful automation tools and a beautiful inline preview for Markdown, TaskPaper, and Fountain documents.


* 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.

No updates for a year

It has been a year since the last update. Support for working with documents in iCloud is missing. It’s just too hard to integrate Editorial into my workflows because of it’s file management limitations.

I’ve been a customer for a long time and I would love to see this app get some love from its developer. It’s a shame because the app does so much really well.

Lots of Potential...

This app would be 5 stars if it had more integration. The option to send text from safari straight to the app is a big one for me personally as well as the others mentioned in previous reviews. Too bad it hasn't been updated in a while. Will have to look for alternatives.

Missing text select gestures! Ios9

Dev must be busy. Can't answer emails anymore. Prob got tired after one email of the bug reports.
Long tap or double tap drag should select automatically like in standard iOS windows. Currently no function is assigned and have to tap once, then tap select, then start selecting. Extremely tedious for editing
Allow add to dictionary. Isn't there a global iPhone dictionary? I have to update dictionary in each app supporting it now (ie wps office)!
