"This is quite possibly the best tool for any writer, blogger, or journalist who needs to get work done on-the-go" - AppAdvice.com

Nebulous Notes connects with your Dropbox account to let you create, edit, and save text files. ★ If you don't have a Dropbox account, no worries, as you can just open the app, and create a note right there and save it later.

No Dropbox account necessary unless you want to save your notes in the cloud. If you don't have a Dropbox account, you can create a free one in less than 30 seconds within Nebulous Notes (free accounts come with 2GB of space). Dropbox is super-reliable, and is the gold standard for cloud file storage. If you delete a file by accident, no worries, Dropbox keeps track of your revisions.

FEATURES:

  • Edit files offline.
  • Open as many files from Dropbox as you want.
  • Protect your login with a PIN.
  • Full-screen support for "Writeroom"-style editing.
  • Handy themes for coding, writing, and dream journaling.
  • Supports TextExpander touch snippet expansion.
  • "Insert Tab" key.
  • Save with CR+LF line endings.

NOTE:

  • This won't help you edit Word Documents or other rich text documents.
  • You can only customize the display of the documents, but that formatting won't be saved to the documents themselves.
  • Nebulous Notes is not affiliated with Dropbox.

Accessibility Comments: 

AppleVis Editor Note: this app was submitted before Usability Ratings were introduced, so one has been chosen on the basis of the accessibility comments made by the original poster. If you have used this app, please post a comment to let us know if you agree with the Rating.

Original Comments: The developer of this app could have labeled one or two buttons a little better, but you can tell what they are. This app works fine if you're editing a document that's only a few pages in size. You can view files that are larger, but VoiceOver will become sluggish if you try to edit them. To switch between documents, simply tap the button which VoiceOver calls open dropbox icon. There is no other way to switch between open documents. If you're worried about whether your document has been saved or not, tap the button which VoiceOver calls SaveCountBtn.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.
