The iPad now has its first truly next-gen text editor: Daedalus Touch is live on the App Store.


This post is a celebration. After roughly one year of planning, conceptualizing, developing, cursing, swearing, testing, going back to the drawing board and starting all over again — we have finally released Daedalus Touch on the App Store.


It’s currently available at the introductory price of $3.99, and if you haven’t done so already, go check out its website, its app store page, and maybe even its now-famous waltz.

Then go get it already and enjoy some work in what’s Charlie Sorrel calls the first »iPad-expoiting« text editor on the App Store.

As for us, we’re pretty exhausted right now (though in a happy, surreal way), and we’re taking a couple of days off. I’m in Denmark for some holidays, and Max will be at WWDC next week, learning about the future of our industry. If you happen to run into him, give him a hug.

Speaking of hugs: We’d like to thank everybody involved in this project for their time, support and understanding, especially our families during the last weeks of sheer crazy mad developer irrationality. We love you.

We’d also like to thank our beta testers for their feedback, suggestions and thorough bug reports. Thumbs up, we couldn’t have made it on our own.

Lastly, we’d like to thank Apple’s App Store review team for these insanely quick reviews.

Have fun, everybody.

    I’ve been looking for this kind of app since months. It would be perfect if I could add other type of data as sheets: a picture sheet, an excel table sheet, a pdf sheet with each page as a sheet. It would work exactly like the stacks of papers sitting on my desk now. I could collect sheets and each stack would be an idea or project…

    Anyway, great approach. You HAVE to add non-text sheets.

      You’re not the first one requesting this ;)
      Hover this does not feel like a 1.1 feature, but we do have it in the yard of our brains.
