I've been searching for a text editor on iPhone with the following features:

  • Support for browsing files in Dropbox and editing them in-place.
  • Support for keeping more than one file open at a time and switching between them.

Apps that don't meet my requirements:

  • GoodReader supports tabs, but it doesn't allow me to edit files in-place in Dropbox.
  • Byword allows me to edit files in Dropbox in-place, but it doesn't have tabs.

Are there any iPhone apps that support tabs and editing files in Dropbox in-place?
