When I mention that I write a lot on the iPad these days, I’m
often asked what iOS apps I’m using to write. The truth is, the
story keeps shifting — I’ve never really settled on a single app,
because none of them give me everything that I want.
These days I’m using Editorial most of the time. It’s got full
Markdown support and syncs with Dropbox, but those features have
basically become table stakes for iOS text editors. What has put
Editorial over the top for me, at least for the moment, is its
powerful set of user-creatable and shareable workflows. These
powerful features can be assigned to keyboard shortcuts, which is
huge for me since I write articles on my iPad Pro while attached
to an external keyboard.
