Sometimes you just wanna focus on writing without any bells and whistles or dazzling features you hardly need. If you’re in a market for a minimalistic raw text editor, consider Tal Bereznitskey’s simple yet effective Text Editor for the iPhone and iPad. It’s got auto-save so you don’t have to worry about losing your document while multitasking, it supports in-app email and puts useful new virtual keyboard controls at your fingertips.
Think the arrow keys for precise cursor positioning and convenient cut, copy and paste buttons. Oh, the Home and End buttons as well. The souped up keyboard works as advertised and I’ve found it incredibly useful. It got me thinking it’s high time for Apple to tweak the system-wide iOS virtual keyboard. If you write a lot on the go, Text Writer is a well spent 99 cents and now it’s free until April 2.
