PlainText Note-Taking App Goes 2.0 For iOS 7, Finally Gains iCloud Support
Over three years after its debut in the App Store, the popular text-editing app PlainText has finally been updated to version 2.0. Coming over a month after the release of iOS 7, PlainText 2.0 unsurprisingly includes a revamped interface that's heavily inspired by the visual style of the operating system. In addition, the new interface is designed to support new swipe gestures. "The interface is physical, not just buttons on the screen," notes PlainText developer Hog Bay Software. "Slide the document view to reveal the drawer underneath. Slide away the keyboard. It feels real and it's faster." PlainText 2.0 also features a new sharing panel, a new document info panel, a text-only editing screen, support for iOS 7's Dynamic Type, and an edit mode for copying, moving, and deleting documents.

Plaintext 2.0 offers the following premium features via in-app purchase: passcode ($1.99), ad removal ($2.99), live word count ($0.99), and extended keyboard ($1.99). PlainText is listed as an "essential app" in our Dropbox Text Editors for iOS AppGuide and included in our iPad Note Taking Apps AppList. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
