* : "One of the best bargains in iPad-based text editing"
* MacWorld: "Clean Writer ... has quickly become my favorite way to write on the iPad"
* : "Hats off to the developers for creating something writers can use"
* : "Clean Writer... provides almost identical features as Writer, at a fraction of the cost"

* different choices of color schemes & global font
* uncluttered UI with gestures - pinch font zoom, tap for quick jump to start/end of text, swipes for File & Preferences panels
* extended keyboard row with user-definable shortcuts
* preview and convert markdown
* live counter of chars, words and lines
* autosaves files when needed but also on demand; intelligent file names defaults preventing accidents
* access your cloud plain text files with Dropbox integration

In 2010 Clean Writer was the first distraction-free plain text editor for iPad. Now it's reborn, redesigned and improved with a new UI, gesture-driven workflow, options hidden from sight, color themes and more.

The app only handles plain text files (.txt, .md, .html, etc) and will NOT open .doc, .rtf or .pdf. It conveniently hides such files when browsing Dropbox folders, to prevent mistakes. (If you need access to non plain text documents, you first need to export them as plain text from Word, Pages, Text Edit or other document processing software).

What's New in Version 3.1

* minor improvements for accessibility
* several UI tweaks
