Editorial still alive?
I’ve just returned to the app after an absence of a few years, since I need a good iOS markdown editor again and remember Editorial fondly.
But there has been only 5 updates in the last 5 years and one in the last 3. There’s no iCloud Drive or Files integration which is pretty much a requirement for this sort of app.
Is it just in maintenance mode now?
It would be sad if it joined VoodooPad in iOS editor heaven.
Can't speak for Ole but it does seem to be abandoned. His last Twitter comments about it suggested it may be too much work to get it updated the way he'd like.
But, as I moved to Editorial from Drafts, so must I move to another. I won't go back to Drafts and don't like iAWriter so I've picked Taio. Not perfect and still rough in some spots but, for me, it's an acceptable replacement for Editorial.
Of course, it uses the standard iOS method of selecting text but I'll cope. It offers iCloud and Files support. I haven't checked into Shortcuts integration or URL Schemes yet.
Other users will have other ideas, of course. Some are sticking with Editorial because there are none better and have gotten iCloud support through "Open in..." methods to save documents and Shortcuts/URL Schemes/clipboard methods to get copy from iCloud into Editorial.
Yep, from what I can see Editorial is not maintained anymore. @wbjethro Taio is an interesting new app! I stick for the time being with Drafts, but I liked Editorial in many ways much better...
It would be such a shame if Editorial disappeared. I use it every day and haven't found anything I like nearly so much.
