Writer for iPad

Another iPad text editor with Dropbox syncing, this one from Information Architects. Definitely worth a look: a spartan plain text interface, a custom monospaced font, and a few convenient customizations to the on-screen keyboard. The “focus” features seem unnecessary to me — how much more focused do you need a writing interface to be than the default Writer view? Note the FAQ, which points out some non-obvious things, like how to rename documents. $4.99 at the App Store.
