Looking for a web-based text editor that works on iOS.

Seems like both Ace and CodeMirror work somewhat, but don't really support mobile.

It doesn't have to be the most complicated thing with all the features in the world.

I'm looking for something that's worth upgrading from a standard textarea. And which works well on modern iOS devices.

I don't know if your priority is a web-based text editor that runs from Safari or if you're looking for a web service with a good iOS counterpart.

For the latter, I recommend you take a look at CodeAnywhere. They recently updated their iOS app and it looks better than ever.

  • I appreciate the response. The question is actually aiming at a web based text editor, like Ace or CodeMirror. Suitable for use directly in MobileSafari or in a UIWebView, perhaps through Cordova.
