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.

“It would be hard to imagine a better editor, let alone recommend one that actually exists.” — The Verge

“This is it. Editorial sets a new standard for third-party iOS automation, and, for me, there’s no going back.” — Federico Viticci, MacStories

“Editorial just reinvented iOS text editing.” — Merlin Mann

What's New in Version 1.3

• Native support for the 12" iPad Pro screen resolution.
• Split-screen multitasking on supported iPads (Air 2 or later).
• Updated Python interpreter (2.7.5 => 2.7.12) and lots of new and improved modules (e.g. `numpy`/`matplotlib`, revamped `photos` module, `objc_util`, and more).
• Improved Python console with syntax highlighting, better support for multi-line statements, and a zoomable image viewer.
• Errors/exceptions in Python scripts are now printed to the console instead of showing a simple alert, so you can read the full traceback.
• The workflow editor has moved to the accessory panel, and the Python/UI editors are opened in separate tabs.
• Improved UI editor with undo support and a more compact inspector panel (for *Custom UI* and *Python Script* workflow actions).
• Fixed a couple of UI readability issues when using the dark theme.

Customer Reviews


A couple months ago, I read some articles extolling the virtues of Editorial. I jumped into the App Store, ready to purchase, until I saw that it hadn't been updated in a long time and didn't yet support the iPad Pro & split screen.

So I'm really excited about the update it received yesterday. So far it's working well, and I appreciate the effort put into the app by the developer.

It's Hard to imagine a better editor

Powerful, programmable plain text editor that also supports Markdown, TaskPaper, Python scripting. Runs on your iPhone and iPad, with document syncing via Dropbox. Use as is, or invest a little time to learn some advanced features for even greater productivity. One of the most brilliantly elegant iOS apps out there.

King of the iOS text editors

I write for a living. There are many fine text editors available for iOS. But there is only one—Editorial—that gives you almost complete control over your editing workflow.

Use markdown? - check
Fountain - check
HTML - check
Taskpaper - check

Want to select an entire sentence with one tap? - there's a workflow for that. Need a custom function? - there's a workflow builder or Python for that.

Highly recommended, and the latest update is very welcome, adding iPad Pro keyboard and screen sharing support.
