What's New

Grrrg… this release fixes one last bug that cause app to crash when returning from PlainText 2 app link.

---

PlainText has been sold to Jonathan Jordan and is now available under the name “PlainText 2”. For a limited time all in-app-purchases are free in PlainText 2. So go check it out!

This version of PlainText will no longer be developed and will soon be removed from the App Store. Thanks to everyone who's used PlainText, I'm hopeful Jonathan will have time to give PlainText more attention then I have.

App Description

For plain text editing. PlainText is a simple text editor with an uncomplicated, paper-like user interface.

• FOLDERS keep your documents organized.
• PAPER-LIKE INTERFACE keeps the focus on your text.
• DROPBOX AND ICLOUD mean your documents are always available.

“A truly great example of how iPad apps should be written. PlainText is simple, uncluttered, and very pretty. It’s a lovely thing to be looking at for one, two, three, four hours while you’re trying to write something.”

— Andy Ihnatko, MacBreak Weekly

TO PLAINTEXT 1 USERS:

This update didn't go as we had hoped. I'm sorry about that. Here's what we are doing:

1. WriteRoom for iOS is free while we work on updating PlainText. It has all the same features as PlainText 1, plus extras. Please use WriteRoom if you rely on any PlainText 1 features.

2. We are taking your feedback and getting PlainText 2 back to the level you expected. This will take some time. Try out the updates, keep giving us feedback. Use WriteRoom in the meantime.

Thanks. This hasn't been fun for any of us. But the problems are fixable. Will just take some time.
