Hog Bay Software’s new Dropbox text file editor for the iPad is now available in the app store. It is free and ad supported an update will bring an ad-free version for a $4.99 in-app purchase price. I have been waiting for this little app for a while now – however it will be interesting to see how it stacks up to Writer for iA.

On first glance it feels a lot like Simplenote, but a little more classic – by that I mean it seems the background is off-white, which makes the experience in PlainText my subdued and calm feeling. One major advantage it has over most other apps like this is the ability to pick the folder name it is linked to in Dropbox (as well as a lot of syncing toggles).
