Wordbox is good for longer form writing (pictures)

Though it's a pretty solid writing app, a lack of iOS 8 compatibility hurts the overall experience, but it's not a showstopper.

Dropbox sync

After connecting Dropbox to Wordbox, each time you open the app you'll find a list of available folders where you can access or create documents in.

Files without a folder to call home will be found at the bottom of the list.

Creating a new folder

Holding the plus sign atop the screen will give you the option to create a new folder, as explained by this brief popup.

Similar hints on how to get the most out of Wordbox are found throughout the app.

Typing

Entering text is as easy as typing a text message. Only Wordbox also supports Markdown, making it possible to create HTML documents with common punctuation marks instead of code.

Options

The options screen (accessed by tapping its icon while writing) gives you the option to change themes, activate Flesky or export the file.

Flesky

While once a headline-worthy feature, Flesky keyboard support is no longer needed. And the lack of updates is noticeable when trying to type with the third-party keyboard.

Archive

One step before deleting a document permanently is the option to archive it. This removes it from any folder or file list, but tucks it away where it can be recovered should you need it again.

Settings

The Settings section of Wordbox lets you control syncing with Drobpox, setup sharing services or disable the extra toolbar that sits above the keyboard while you type.

Sharing

Sharing services are a valuable tool for any text editor, and Wordbox has no shortage of them.
