  • Time for an iTextEditors update

    iTextEditors continues to be one of the most popular destinations on this site, but it's getting a little bit stale. I've kept it up to date with all of the submissions that come in, but I've seen a dozen new text editors come through the App Store that I haven't had time to try out. I need a hand.…

  • The WALTR winners

    If you missed it, you can catch my review here. Don't forget that it's only $14.95 for a little longer, then the price is going up to $29.95. If you have videos or audio in any non-iTunes format, grab a free trial and see how simple it is to get them on your iPhone in all the native players.…

    iThoughts, the most powerful mind mapping app on iOS, has been updated (well, re-released, really) with a bevy of new features. It's now a universal app (both iPhone and iPad), and requires a new purchase. At the $2 US intro price, though, there's really no reason for anyone to not grab it.…

  • Fantastical 2 for iPad, review and giveaway

    You've probably heard that Fantastical 2 for iPad is out. I'm a bit slow writing about it, but not for lack of excitement. This is an amazing app, and even after leaving my job and having a lot less on my schedule, it's a joy to use.…

  • MindNode 3 for iOS

    I have a soft spot for the affordable-yet-wonderful mind mapping app for both Mac and iOS. It syncs flawlessly across the platforms with iCloud, and it's a pleasure to use. The latest update adds new interface polish, sharing and publishing options, and an amazing new icon, among other things.…

  • Going #iPadOnly

    Over the years, Michael Sliwinski has constantly impressed me with the thoughtful genius he puts into the multi-platform GTD app, Nozbe. Now he's put out a book called #iPadOnly.…

  • Write for iPad with device sharing

    I mentioned Write --- a Markdown text editor with a ton of sharing options --- a while ago, and I was impressed with it overall. A new version just came out, and an iPad version to go with it. It's not just a companion app, though. In addition to a round of bug fixes, there's something else really neat going on here.…

  • iOS App Review: WordEver HD

    A new editor was recently added to iTextEditors that I had to check out. It's called WordEver HD (iPad only), a full-screen text editor with some rather brilliant features which build nicely on some predecessors work.…

  • See what's new at iTextEditors

    iTextEditors, my comparison chart for iOS text editing apps of all sorts, continues to grow. With the features of over 80 text editors now listed on the chart, I don't think I'm lying when I say it's a valuable resource to anyone who wants simple, fast editing on their iOS device. While I haven't had the time to redesign the chart to make the comparison and filtering as easy as possible, I did find the time to add a way to specify what's been most recently added or updated.…

  • Great apps for 2012: iOS

    This is part three of a three-part series covering some of my favorite apps for 2012. So far I've posted about my favorite Mac apps and my favorite iOS and Mac combo apps. This post covers some of my favorite iOS-only apps for the year.…

  • Quick Review: Pro HDR

    This is going to be quick. I plan to make Pro HDR a pick of the week on Systematic, so I'll elaborate more then, but I thought it was worth a pointer for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.…

  • FioWriter brings Mac editing shortcuts to your iPad

    I just added FioWriter to iTextEditors today. It's a pretty great idea for an iPad text editor: it adds Command and Option keys to the keyboard, so anyone who's used to standard OS X text editing operations can use it in a very familiar way.…

  • Drafts 2.0 and Drafts for iPad

    I mentioned this was coming on the last episode of Systematic: Drafts 2.0 and Drafts for iPad are out. If you're looking for a solid and elegant solution for inputing notes, tweets, emails, markdown text or just about anything you can type on your iOS device, this one is perfect.…

  • App Review: Textastic code editor for iPad

    I've been meaning to write about Textastic for almost a year now. I'm easily distracted by shiny objects, so some things take a while. In the meantime, this app has only gotten better. It's in the iTextEditors chart, but I think it deserves a special mention. I'll try to write up a few more of my favorites before another year passes me by.…

  • iOS App Giveaway: WriteUp

    As part of my Thanksgiving holiday giveaways, I have five promo codes for the iOS Markdown editor, WriteUp. It's a slick Dropbox-powered editor for both iPhone and iPad that I recently reviewed. It's definitely worth a look if you want to edit Markdown files on the go.…

  • The Mac and iOS mind mapping app extravaganza

    Most of my projects start out as mind maps (which I may have mentioned before). Whether it's a packing list, a blog post or a TextMate bundle, I find it easiest to organize my (often scattered) thoughts using what Tony Buzan calls radiant thinking. Lists and outlines are rarely as effective as the non-linear format of a mind map. For me, if it involves brainstorming, it involves mind maps.…

  • PromptDown for iOS: Mobile Markdown Teleprompter

    I recently wrote a tiny web app called PromptDown to let me drop in some Markdown (or plain text) and use it as a teleprompter for screencast voiceovers. I wasn't going to put any more time into it, as it did what I needed. Then it started to bug me that it didn't work on my iPad, which could actually be really handy. So my lunch break fine, and an extra half an hour went to making it work a little more smoothly as an iPhone/iPad app. It's also ready to install as a web app, so you can go full-…
