Elements – the text editor app for the iPad and iPhone – has been updated, to Version 1.1. The notable changes include a completely new user interface, full-text search, the ability to rename and delete files, and to sort your file list by modified date or title.
The iPad version also gets a file listing view in addition to the grid layout.
You can find this latest version of Elements in the App Store now, priced at $4.99.
Elements is a new text editor app for the iPad, or for me a notes app. It’s full name listed in its App Store entry is Elements – Dropbox Powered Text Editor, and as that name implies Dropbox integration is one of its key selling points.
It certainly sold me on wanting to take a good look at this app as soon as I heard it had hit the App Store – as I’ve been using Dropbox for ages and absolutely love the service. If you’ve not yet discovered Dropbox, it is by far away the easiest and best online file sync / backup service I’ve ever come across. It offers up to 2GB of space for free and then a very reasonable $9.99/month for up to 50GB on their premium service. I use the service on my MacBook Pro, as well as my iPhone and iPad – so any notes app with a hookup to Dropbox has instant appeal for me, and I’ve been trying it out a bit.
