Great app works hard to improve
I used the original version for the onscreen keyboard. The app offered the only onscreen keyboard with real access to printer’s quotes and other characters the apple version didn’t offer.
But the Pro version excels at almost everything, from document management to it’s Mac Apps integration (although the Mac version is costly and offers little in comparison to the superior Ulysses other than the fact that it pairs with its iPad twin. Sadly, Ulysses twin on the iPad, Daedalus runs well behind this app in just about every catagory).
I don’t really use the different screens, but I absolutely on the app for it’s character and word count features, it’s ability to move documents around, it’s ability to access text edit documents from my Mac as well as other text documents in dropbox.
In addition, I discovered two bugs, syncing and printing, that their tech support department worked tireless to resolve over the next two days. No other developers have been as helpful.
It really is that wonderful
If you want to write, this will get you there.
I use it to capture immediacy, then export if desirable to Evernote, etc. in the entirely convenient iOS 8 way, rather than fight with their slow starts, marginal editors, bugs, ui foo foo, and other hazards.
Just fine on its own saving, though, and the iCloud way seems great, and with no delays. Works on my PC laptop flawlessly, and no startup delay as Dropbox saving has. You can always export to Dropbox like Evernote if desired, after you've actually worked up your text.
Clean, Beautiful Writing Experience
This app looks beautiful. That seems easy for a text editor, but believe me, it's not. The fonts for the different parts of the workflow are perfect.
Speaking of the workflow, it's not the way most people are used to working. That's fine. Obviously, you can use this program however you want. With that said, though, I'd encourage you to try the workflow experience the way it's intended. It's really a polished way to write and edit your work that you may come to like more than you'd think.
