WriteRoom is a full screen text editor for the iPhone that is brilliant in its simplicity. I just downloaded it yesterday. Key features to the program include:
- The ability to view/edit text files in fullscreen mode. This mode is entered by simply zooming in on the text (like you would on a picture). To exit this mode, zoom out.
- Fullscreen mode allows you to view several more lines of text relative to the iPhone's Notes program. (No clock or title bar.) This is particularly nice when the keyboard takes up a large portion of the screen in landscape orientation.
- Support for both portrait and landscape modes.
- You can customize the color and font you want the text and background to appear in. (I currently have it set to white text on a black background.)
You can also synchronize your files to an account at SimpleText.ws. This gives you a similar interface you see when using the Wi-Fi sharing feature. This requires using a Google account but doesn't require a shared Wi-Fi connection.
If you do much writing or use frequent use of text files, this application is defintely worth checking out.
