I’m loving Unclutter on my Mac and would like to be able to use something similar on iOS. I have sync my notes on Dropbox, so everything is there. I’ve tried to use the Dropbox edit text file workflow, but it’s tedious to create a note. So do you guys have an app that could do this? Unclutter’s displays text files stored in it’s folder without problem so I just have to have an app that syncs with dropbox in a folder of my choosing and I should be golden.
Most good iOS text editors will open files in a Dropbox folder system. I used to use Byword, now I use IA Writer for basic text files. (Ulysses can also open/save to Dropbox, but I prefer to keep all my Ulysses files together in iCloud.)
FYI IA Writer digs into my Dropbox folder still named ‘Byword’.
But again, most decent text apps can open/save from Dropbox.
thanks @bowline, a bit too expensive for my taste. I was using Simplenote on the iPhone, but it has it’s own sync, that’s why I wanted something to get to my Unclutter text notes.
Like I said, there are LOTS of quality apps (and a lot of garbage ones) that link to Dropbox. $5 for an iOS writing app is too expensive for you? Okay, but I think you’re missing out on a universe of well-designed, stable, powerful apps that are bargains for their price.
oops, sorry, I had looked on my Mac and was looking at the Mac app for 39.99 in Canada. That was a bit much. It’s 6.99 in for the iPhone app, sorry.
For free try Permanote (US link).
And of course Dropbox’s own Paper app is free.
