Syml is a minimalist text editor designed specifically to take advantage of the iPad's large screen. It’s built around seamless Dropbox sync and natural gestures that let you interact directly with your words.

  • It has persistent, unlimited undo through an radial dial that makes Undo and Redo a fluid part of the editing experience
  • An interface that feels at home on the iPad Pro
  • All the fonts and themes that you need to make your writing environment look and feel exactly the way you want
  • Create markdown text version of a website via the share extension, with built in filters to focus on the content
  • It allows you to insert markdown interactively using simple swipes.
  • Deep markdown syntax awareness with beautiful highlighting and actions based on the current text
  • Fully optimised to take advantage of iOS 9 features like Multitasking, which allows you to use it in tandem with other apps, and Spotlight integration, so you can easily jump to your files
  • Pinch to expand selection, Tip-tap to move the cursor to the beginning or end of a word (hard to describe, but easy to master)

This is a text editor for writers that looks deceptively simple, while offering a depth of powerful features. Syml gets out of your way, and lets you focus on your writing.
