What's New in Version 3.0.4
good but missing core function...
When I'm browsing my files in the Dropbox app I may suddenly have a need to make a note. Dropbox can't do it, which is why I need an app like this.
Let's assume I already have a txt file in Dropbox, and I just want to edit it.
I'll just select "open in" and then choose your app, and it will take me directly to that file in your app and I'm editing in no time, right?!
Your app isn't even listed in "activities" as an option. And if it were, it would probably merely just open the app instead of the file itself. That is to say, I'll have to navigate to the file for the 2nd time.
I've gone through many apps to find a solution. Others do show up in the "activities" / "open in" list (PlainText, for example), but do not open the file - just the app.
Microsoft Word and Excel do open the file directly, so I know it's possible. But Word won't open a txt file...
Use word docs instead of txt files? Ew.
Allows universal documents
I was using workflowy for the past year to keep notes at the ready during Bible study and to be able to reference or add things to research on the Sabbath, but started looking for an alternative that would not cost $4.95 a month. Since I use Dropbox across several computers and .txt is the ultimate universal file format, this app completes the process and it saves me $60 a year along with allowing for more formatting options. The search and replace function WITH Reg Exp is priceless!!!
perfect text search
there are so many text editor apps. This syncs dropbox and text file search function is easy and works great.
