Elements is a versatile text editor for the iOS, that allows you to view, edit and share plain text documents on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
Yes, another one. One very nice thing about this app, just to start is that it is universal, buy it once and you can use it across all platforms.
All of your data is stored in a folder on your personal Dropbox account so that its accessible from any device you have, or on the web. Elements also saves changes every 30 seconds and or if you are not online, it will sync when you are connected.
Drop a TXT file into the Elements folder of your Dropbox, and it will show up in the iPad app.
Elements shows you word, character and line counts and can even email your TXT files as attachments.
The one drawback is that there is is no fancy-schamancy formatting, and the text and background color options it does have aren't great. This is basic text editing and an excellent app.
