Compositions enables text editing across Mac, iOS platforms
By Joel Mathis, Macworld
A new Dropbox-enabled text editing program lets users shift between their iPhone, iPad and Mac computer while composing documents.
Compositions, an offering from Capparsa, debuted Wednesday in both the iOS and Mac App Stores. The app lets users compose in plain text—there are no options to add bold, italics, or other style formatting. Documents can be created on the iPhone or iPad, saved to Dropbox from within the app, and picked up for completion on a desktop computer. (Users who want to sync the document between their iOS device and a non-Mac computer can export the document as a .txt file.)
Both the mobile and computer versions of the app also include a snapshots feature to let users save version histories of their in-progress documents. The mobile version also features TextExpander support, and documents can be created both on- and offline.
A Dropbox account is required in order to sync documents. Compositions for iOS costs $1, and is compatible with devices running iOS 4.2 or later. Compositions for Mac is free, and compatible with computers running OS X 10.6.6 or later.
