What a Shame


After scouring the reviews, I thought I'd finally found the text editor I'd been searching for: a simple program that lets you edit text documents in your Dropbox account, preferably with realtime sync. Alas, while it may offer your choice of almost attractive themes and markdown options, typing in this disaster of an app is simply irritating, as the text continuously jumps back to the top of each document. Am I seriously asking for too much here?



For some reason this app won't go into landscape mode, unlike every other writing app I have tried. For me, a complete waste of money.

Great Dropbox Markdown Editor


I have a bunch of Dropbox text editors but keep coming back to WriteUp. The "pin" feature to keep a document in all views is particularly handy.

My only complaint is lack of flexibility of the markdown keyboard row. I love that this row is here, but I don't need image insertion or help with links, I also badly wish I could choose to use dashes "-" instead of asterisks "*" for the list item indicator. This last item, coupled with the fact I also use WriteUp to manage a TaskPaper formatted file, is the only reason I keep exploring other editors.

Sorry for posting a feature request in the reviews here, but I spent 15 minutes looking for a way to contact the developer and was unable to find any support or contact info.
