On the way...

:
This app has the potential to be THE iOS text editor but:

1) corrupts the files by writing a UTF-8 BOM to every file edited in it. Why? Dropbox 0.8+ syncs metadata.
2) changes the line endings from whatever they were to CRLF (DOS/Windows). Why not use whatever the file was using or have a preference to choose.
3) forces you to use an Elements folder at the root of your Dropbox folder to hold the files it syncs. The app has full Dropbox access but the devs must have messed up and still have their Sandbox access enabled with Dropbox.
4) doesn't recognise links in the text so URLs and phone numbers can't be touched and used.

All the above are easy fixes to make this a great app. At the moment I consider points 1 and 2 above to be a completely unacceptable as they are tantamount to data corruption -- shows an insult and disdain for their users.

4/5 stars
Almost Great

:
Elements has all the major features necessary to be the text editor of choice for the iPad: Dropbox support for folders, ability to preview Markdown, and with this recent revision, (1.51) my favorite monospaced font Vera Sans Mono.

Hopefully Second Gear will attain greatness by adding some small, but important features, for me at least:

Control over CR/LFs
Control over the Byte Order Mark
support for Fletcher Penney's .mmd extension for Multi-Markdown

I know these can always be dealt with, but shuttling data between iPad and laptop is already chock full of little niggles, why not streamline user experience, if possible?

5/5 stars
Favorite notes app - have tried many

:
This app is great great great - I have tried so many note taking apps and this is my favorite - built on Dropbox, so the data is mine and exists wherever I want it to (no need for a 3rd party syncing tool). It's simple - .txt and TexEdit is all you need, but you can get into markdown if you want to.

The best part about this app is that it works - and no update (so far) has broken it. I have never lost a note with this app (not always the case with other note syncing apps). This app is solid and worth every penny - no additional cost for premium services. You pay once and you have the full set of features and updates for the version. Buy it, use it, tell friends about it. I love it.
