App Description

Featured three times on Lifehacker as one of the best tools for getting things done! Nebulous Notes is the text editor of choice for professionals.

(If you want to try-before-you-buy, check out "Nebulous Notes Lite.")

## ABOUT ##

Nebulous Notes is the text editor of choice for professionals. I get emails from correspondents at BBC, writers for the New Yorker, and businessmen trying to organize their thoughts. I'm also working on a 200+ page book myself, so I use my own app every day.

All notes in NN are backed up to Dropbox, because I care a lot about text files. Notes aren't stored in some vague format that is hard to export (think GDrive or Evernote), but rather in plain-old text files that you can point to.

Nebulous Notes is also the ONLY iOS text editor that selectively edits and syncs text files in any Dropbox folder seamlessly. It took 3 years to make it this smooth, but it's crucial because not everybody has all their text files in one single application folder.

## FEATURES ##

* Open and edit all plain-text files (.txt, .md, .c, etc.)
* Save files to Dropbox
