Using an iPad for real, part 7, Editor

So now I need a simple text editor for my iPad Pro …

Edhita is a fully open source text editor for iOS written in Swift (the Apple development language).

Born Neet, the publisher behind many iOS App created Edhita, an open source text editor for the iPad with a number of useful features.

Edhita is available as a free download on Apple Store for iPad owners. The application is supports English language. It weighs in at only 10MB to download. It is highly advisable to have the latest app version installed so that you don’t miss out on the fresh new features and improvements. The Apple Store includes a very useful feature that will check if your device and iOS version are both compatible with the app. Most iPhone and iPad are compatible.

Reasons I settled on Edhita for now:

  • Free
  • Open Source
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to use (even with almost no documentation!)
  • Manage directories and files
  • View files using a built-in browser
  • Split view
  • Download files via HTTP
  • Input symbols via accessory view
  • Send files by e-mail
  • Preview markdown

You can read more about Edhita here: http://edhita.bornneet.com and the Apple App Store https://apps.apple.com/us/app/edhita-open-source-text-editor/id398896655

It’s not what I would call the most user-friendly app. And the lack of documentation not so good. I also feel that it could disappear in the future if the developer doesn’t feel like continuing.

This will do for now, but let me know if you now of better options?

More reflections on how I find using my iPad Pro for real work next month.
