About Textastic

Textastic (and Textastic Code Editor for iPhone) is a text HTML editor. This is possibly my favorite HTML editor for the iPad. It has the most features of any iPad editor I've tried and it's very easy to use. I love the special keys bar on the keyboard, it is one of the most useful keyboards on the iPad I've ever used. I would pay the $8.99 just for that keyboard.
