Compositions is a multi-platform Dropbox enabled writer's app designed for OS X and iOS, with a focus on content creation.

-Featured by Apple's New & Noteworthy Apps! : "An elegant Dropbox-enabled app for iOS and Mac"
-Editor's Pick on
-Featured by as one of the 50 best free apps on the Mac App Store! "..the snapshot feature is one of the most powerful feature[s] around"

The OS X version is designed to be used with the iOS version. It's offered for free so that you can easily view, edit and save changes to your Compositions documents. The two distinct apps work in concert with one another, so that you can stay mobile with all your docs.

The iOS Version is free and allows you edit your documents on the go from your iPad or iPhone.

SNAPSHOTS [.write extension only]
You can use the snapshot feature to freeze versions of your document, so that you can easily revert to them if you ever have the need. Snapshots are saved along with the file, and carried from device to device. This lets you work with several drafts all in a single file, without having to constantly "save as", etc.

SYNCING [.write extension only]
To keep files in sync from your Mac to your iOS device, make sure to save your files in the folder your app uses. By default this is in your root Dropbox folder, named /CompositionsApp

-Minimal design: Focus just on your content
-Snapshots: Version your document with ease [.write extension only]
-Use Dropbox in combination with the iOS app to keep your files in sync across all your devices
-Export to text (.txt) at any time
-iOS Inspired Shortcuts: Double tap space bar to enter a period. Use autocorrect to fix common misspellings.

Customer Reviews

Very Nice

The recent update fixed the problems I was having with this app. It seems to work beautifully now, making it, easily, the best app I have for working on documents across multiple devices from OSX to iOS without having to convert formats -- and I've tried a half-dozen other apps without much joy.

The interface is clean, simple, and easy to use, allowing me to just do my thing without unhelpful and distracting bells and whistles.

Exactly the app I wanted and needed. Well done on the update.
