[prMac.com] Dallas, Texas - Capparsa, LLC is pleased to announce Compositions for iOS is now free. Available for both iOS and Mac OS X, Compositions is a multiplatform, Dropbox enabled text editor app that is focused on content creation.
It uses Dropbox to keep files in sync between the Mac and the iPad and iPhone/iPod Touch. Simply login with your Dropbox credentials on the iOS app and it will begin to sync to the folder of your choice. On your Mac with Dropbox installed, simply open the files and make edits using Compositions.
Since the iOS app uses a user-initiated sync, files can edited locally while offline. That means if you're on a plane, train or somewhere with spotty internet access, you still have full access to all your files. Just make changes normally and when you get back online, tap sync to push all your changes.
The app uses a custom file format which gives it added features not found in other text editors. One key feature, "Snapshots", allows the user to take a snapshot of the document at any time, which is carried along with the file across all the devices. This enables the user to snapshot the document before making any major changes without having a fear of losing work if the changes are not wanted anymore. They can simply revert back to the snapshot and nothing is lost. Think of it as "source control" for writers.
Compositions also features a full screen mode for the iPhone and iPad. Simply double tap the bar at the top and it, along with the other interface elements, disappears leaving a nice full screen view to write in. Tap once at the thin white strip at the top to bring back the original interface.
If you need to edit your file on a computer that doesn't have Compositions installed, you can export your document as a .txt file at any time. After you make edits on your computer, you can re-import the .txt file to your document, and it's saved as a snapshot.
With these features and more, Compositions is a great tool for writers who want to stay mobile and be able to make edits to their creations on the go and with ease:
