So much fun.

I’ve been wanting an app like this for iPad for years, and just discovered this last night. Finally, a tablet app I can markup and style with at my fingertips. Should you be wondering, it lets you build folders within the app when storing files — as you would a site — and like others, upload those biles using Dropbox, if you have that installed.

Works beautifully with a stylus.

Best $7.99 I’ve ever spent!

Go to editor

Textastic has been my go to editor on iOS for years now. Now with the iPad pro I can't wait to see how much more useful it will become once the larger screen is used more effectively, it has a more appropriate keyboard for the size available, and supports split-view.

A must-have

For anyone who does any kind of development, Textastic is a requirement. Powerful programming and editing features wrapped in a well-designed and elegant interface. Makes it possible to do real programming work on my iPad. Would buy it again if I could.
