Daedalus Touch text editor, updated for iOS 7, goes free with IAP

The Soulmen have announced the release of Daedalus Touch 1.7, a new version of their iOS text editor. The new version has been updated and also has a new pricing model - starting at free.

The user interface in the new version has been reworked to complement iOS 7. Also new is X-Callback-URL support for "new," "open" and "search." New font selection adds all system fonts, you can import and use custom fonts, a new themes have been added that color the entire interface. TextExpander 2.3, Smile Software's popular text shortcut software, is now supported.

Daedalus Touch - a universal app that runs natively on both the iPad and iPhone - uses a "paper stack" metaphor instead of file lists or folders. You can flick to move through pages, reorder stacks and sheets using gestures, and select multiple sheets for export easily.

The free version sports iCloud sync support and works with The Soulmen's Ulysses app for OS X. You can also print and send e-mails from within the app. Additional features available for purchase within the app include more export options, syncing capabilities, themes and custom fonts. If you've already purchased it, all features remain activated when you update.
