Do you consider yourself a minimalist? If so, you probably hate all the clutter that comes from many writing apps. For this reason, quite a few journalists have switched away from Microsoft Word and prefer writing in simple text files. Not only do text (.txt) files give an undistracting writing environment, they also can be opened from virtually any app. That’s why I love Nebulous Notes so much. It lets you work in .txt files and sync them to Dropbox. That means I can start jotting down notes in a .txt file on my computer, then continue editing it on my iPhone or iPad later. Nebulous Notes is the best app I’ve found for editing .txt files on your iOS device.
