Editorial is a plain text editor for the iPad with powerful automation tools and a beautiful inline preview for writing Markdown.
You can combine a large selection of simple text processing actions into your very own workflows — all in an intuitive drag'n'drop interface that makes it easy to see what's happening — even if things get complex.
And if that's not enough, you have a full-fledged Python interpreter at your fingertips, including modules for easily accessing the editor's text, the iOS clipboard, or even your photo library. Editorial is the first fully-scriptable writing app on iOS.
Editorial is designed to make writing on the iPad efficient, and that applies not only to the advanced workflow system, but just as much to the actual editor. The extended Markdown keyboard gives you quick access to all the special characters you need, and it doubles as a gesture area for positioning the cursor. The one-tap outline lets you quickly jump between different sections of your document and check the current word count. You can track your progress by comparing different versions of your documents in Dropbox, or restore a part that you've deleted accidentally.
