One of my favorite features about WriteRoom is that as soon as I open it, I see a listing of a Dropbox directory I have previously configured. No extra steps. This lets me very quickly get to my notes and records without navigating around, since I always want to go to the same directory.
Since WriteRoom will soon become incompatible with iOS 11 since it is a 32-bit app and is not being actively developed, does anyone know which of the many text editors available has this feature?
Per @patrix suggestion, here are prioritized features for a Dropbox text editor:
- Open directly to a particular Dropbox folder at launch, after a one-time configuration step. No additional navigation. Speed is #1!
- Sync that Dropbox folder's contents to the device, so that it can be accessed offline, and the changes reconciled after coming back online
- Text search through the entire folders files, and also within the file once it is open.
- Sort the folder list by name or date, descending.
