Featured three times on Lifehacker as one of the best tools for getting things done! Nebulous Notes is the text editor of choice for professionals.
(If you want to try-before-you-buy, check out "Nebulous Notes Lite.")
Nebulous Notes is the text editor of choice for professionals. I get emails from correspondents at BBC, writers for the New Yorker, and businessmen trying to organize their thoughts. I also just finished writing a 200+ page book myself, so I use my own app every day.
All notes in NN are backed up to Dropbox, because I care a lot about text files. Notes aren't stored in some vague format that is hard to export (think GDrive or Evernote), but rather in plain-old text files that you can point to.
Nebulous Notes is also the ONLY iOS text editor that selectively edits and syncs text files in any Dropbox folder seamlessly. It took 3 years to make it this smooth, but it's crucial because not everybody has all their text files in one single application folder.
- Open and edit all plain-text files (.txt, .md, .c, etc.)

Great Text Editor!
I use this text editor daily. It is easy to use and does everything I want. I love the Dropbox capability. It is nice to have all my files safely backed up and available on my computer & other devices. I constantly switch between all of these, and my text fIles are always up to date with each other with a quick synch. I also like to save my files in folders within folders in Dropbox, which I can do with this app. The keyboard is easy to use for typing. This app is simple to use and has never crashed on me. I have found nothing else out there that is as convenient to use. Text files are great for notes and saving information. They can always be almost universally read by any computer or device. You never have to fear losing all your data because some software company went out of business. Your files and data are safe forever, as long as they are safely backed up.
Best Enhanced iNotepad App Found
Using Neb Notes for over 18 mos. every day now. Nice iOS 8 update. 'Like the active web links. Super solid & v. handy.
Would love a paid upgrade for employing simple B/I/U text w/o Markdown.
Nebulous has run smoothly for me for >6 weeks. It has ALL the important features I wanted, plus a few extra that I have come to think are essential now.
My biggest pleasant surprise was that Dropbox (DB) cloud sync is extremely easy compared to many other note apps I labored with. Staying organized using folders is much helpful. This app opens any text note file I had already created with any note recording app previously tested.
Runs well on my iPhone & iPad mini.
The app's default folder location on Dropbox is "/My Notes" not "/Nebulous" (may cause confusion at first). You can change that in Settings or go to your preferred Dropbox folder while in Neb Notes and create a note and it will be located right in that folder.
Discovered: notes newly created in "/My Notes" CAN be moved quickly to another preferred Dropbox folder location. Tip: you swipe the folder location field and then reselect the Dropbox folder where you want the note located.
Solid! Solid as a rock.
Reliable, versatile, and just powerful enough, NN is without a doubt one of the best notebook apps in the Store -- and believe me, I've tried a LOT of them! It's particularly strong in its DropBox integration.
I've been using it since the iPad 2 and it's only gotten better and never let me down.
As a bonus, NN has a responsible and responsive developer who continues to update the app while retaining its original virtues of simplicity and capability and who promptly answers questions and responds to bug reports.
Now if only he'd grant my wish to make the app's great keyboard available as a cross-app custom keyboard for use everywhere in iOS!
