Permanote (formerly Nebulous Notes)

By Nuclear Elements, Inc.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Value what you write. Permanote is used by writers for the New Yorker, correspondents at the BBC, and CEOs for organizing their thoughts.

Permanote edits all your text files in Dropbox. The editor is fully customizable, including a strip of keys above the keyboard. Other editors force you into a particular theme so that you can "get in the mood." Or they force you to store all your notes in one folder, or to sync all your files at once. Not with Permanote. Permanote means freedom.


Permanote is subscription-only so that we can fund a steady stream of updates as iOS and Dropbox changes. We also have a deep backlog of feature requests, and our goal is to eventually have your iPad replace your laptop. To get there, we need sponsors like you.

Try for 30 days, risk-free. After your trial, it is just $1.99 per month, which is automatically charged via iTunes. Canceling Permanote is easy, and your subscription will last till the end of the current period.

Monthly Subscription for a TEXT EDITOR?!

I've downloaded, purchases & used hundreds of apps over the years. And I've encountered a lot of bad pricing models but this is literally the most INSANE thing I've come across on the AppStore or anywhere else.

I think it is a shamefully greedy move on the developers' part, he'll probably cut off updates for the "old version" (which was the "brand new and improved version" just a few months back), in a bid to get users to migrate to this horrible subscription model.

Just a few months of subscription fees for this basic text editor could afford you a really high end app or a complete office suite instead. There are millions of developers who update their product regularly on the AppStore without asking for a subscription. Do you think you're Spotify or NetFlix?

This is literally the most twisted development in pay models and should be shunned by one and all for several valid reasons.

No to monthly subscription and...

I don't' want a "high end" suite. Just a Text and RTF editor that works.

Nuff said.
