Textastic iPad text editor supports syntax highlighting, more
By David Chartier
The iPad has no shortage of text apps for jotting down notes or working on documents, from Documents To Go, to Elements, to Simplenote. But a different kind of text editor, called Textastic, is aimed squarely at developers and Web designers, offering features rarely found in iPad apps.
Also supported are Apple’s official keyboard dock; your favorite Bluetooth keyboard; the WebDAV protocol, for exchanging files between other computers; TextExpander; and iOS 3.2’s Document Sharing features, for opening files in other apps, such as Good Reader.
Textastic is available now for $5 in the App Store, and you’ll need an iPad running iOS 3.2 or later.
