iPad comes with a default editor, Notes which itself has major issues on exporting them out of iPad. There is no direct way except that you can mail the notes to anybody via Email.

Plain Text

Features :

  • Simple and Effective Editor

  • Create folder.
  • Syncs with Dropbox, creates a folder named as PlainText and syncs everything right inside.

PlainText DropBox

Drawbacks :

  • It doesn’t allow you to move files and folders into each other once created.
  • There is no Email Integration but then you don’t need it with Dropbox.

Since this is integrated with DropBox but doesn’t support any other formats apart from plain text, the files like docx are displayed in the file list but doesn’t get opened. Check the image below :
