|From The Soulmen website, app developer of Daedalus Touch natural writing app.|
I'd intended to wait to post a full, comprehensive app review, but if you don't already have this app, you need it. If you do any writing on your iPad at all, you need this app.
Don't let the
$4.99 (10/22/12 currently discounted! $2.99) price tag scare you — you get what you pay for with Daedalus Touch — it's pure quality. Notes, rough drafts, journal entries, code; whatever you want to put in it has a place. The app is fast, straightforward and easy to use, and its intelligent UI is brilliant and easy to learn.
If you're the cost-conscious (or broke) type, you can get AppShopper and wait for Daedalus Touch to go on sale. The Soulmen periodically discount their app, but their last discount ($4 off) was a few weeks ago so it might be awhile. However, they aren't the sort of big, nasty, non-caring evil corporation, so you needn't worry that your cash is going to a corrupt corporation (unless that's how you view Apple, in which case, you probably don't — or shouldn't — have an iPad, anyway).
I've mentioned the app before, but I'm mentioning it again because of a recent update. Content can be organized and synced with Dropbox and iCloud, and the document stacks can be exported in multiple formats including PDF and ePub eBook format. You can choose a photo for the cover image and make your own book, readable in iBooks and popular eBook readers. The app supports Markdown as well.
Let me know what you think app (because I'm curious) and don't be shy about contacting the developer (because they can directly do something with your feedback)!
