Droptext was the first text editor on iOS to open, edit, and save plain text files from your Dropbox account. From Droptext you can quickly edit any text file from any folder in any of your Dropbox accounts. You can also create and delete files and folders from the simple and easy to use interface. Droptext supports TextExpander touch snippet expansion.

Gizmodo's Top App of the Week! "The biggest draw of this app is the price, though. At just $1, it’s worth having this app around for when you need it."

App Advice: "...for $0.99, Droptext is a fantastic app to have running on your iPhone or iPad." "The simplicity and seamlessness of Droptext make it an essential app to own. When used in conjunction with a Bluetooth keyboard, it essentially adds another dimension to iPhone practicality, which isn't something that can be said about most new apps. Using Droptext is enjoyable and efficient -- so much so, in fact, that I used it to write this review." "If you’re a big Dropbox user like I am, it' a great app."

Note: Droptext does not open MS Word or any format other than text files. Any plain text file will work (*.txt, *.html, *.php, *.m, etc.)

Best Dropbox editor so far

It’s not as pretty as Write or as fast as Dropbox but it gets the job done. The interface is a bit unintuitive—I didn’t see that tapping the icon vs the file name gave me different functions and I couldn’t find any instructions online. Overall, it works and that’s the main thing for me.


Very simple and clean

This works. The most simple solution to working with text files on Dropbox. No additives, no extras. It just works.


Doesn't work anymore.

This app used to be awesome and really useful. But these days all it does is flash errors saying "Failed to upload changes" all the time. None of the notes I make in it are getting saved. I even deleted the app and reinstalled it. It simply doesn't work anymore.
