Excellent Upgrade

TextTool 2 improves upon the first gen tool, offers a very reasonable and fair upgrade path, and has good support. What's not to like. If you need to manipulate text - get this tool or upgrade your copy of TT!

NO Textexpander Support. Wow.

I can't even fathom how a text app is released with no support for textexpander.

Pretty much the best thing to happen iOS text editing, ever

- Workflow? Pffft.
- IFTTTT? Yawn.
- TextExpander (most recent version)? Insultingly asks for a subscription to use the same software as previous/TE 3 version of app.

If you already have Textastic, (which you should), you may wonder if something like TextTool 2 is necessary -- and that's very understandable. Textastic is THE best iOS text editor ever. Period.

Drafts is GREAT, and a close second to Textastic as far as price/cost goes.

(Coda by Panic is equally dominant if you don't mind paying a little more, same goes for Editorial.)

But TextTool 2, (ignore the first edition/version unless you already own it, buy the bundle because, you know, why not?), is THE PERFECT compliment to something like Drafts, Textastic, Editorial, or Coda. I strongly encourage anyone who lives and dies by their iOS text editing software on a daily basis to see the light and go with TextTool 2.

The second version by dev team, "Kairoos Solutios SL," is a quantum leap from the first version they released. It's lightweight, ultra-fast, and wonderfully convenient.

With this app, you rely less and less on various "one trick ponies" like Text Expander or IFTTT etc. It's ridiculously user-friendly and doesn't require much experience to see how ubiquitous it is with practically any iOS software. For those familiar with more advanced features, (read: you do a lot of writing in markdown, multi-MD, python programming, or all kinds of document/text syntax specific to your needs), TextTool 2 has what you need in spades. Novice or expert -- it doesn't matter. This app rocks for everyone. Enjoy.
