MagicPad: The Missing Rich Text Editor For The iPhone

This last week I took a break from my usual duties to create a new app that is sorely missing. Today I'm proud to introduce the first rich text editor for the iPhone, we're calling it MagicPad. What better way to take advantage of the iPhone's gorgeous high-resolution screen, than creating documents with different fonts, sizes, colors, and decorations. MagicPad shows that the iPhone can be used for creating as well as consuming, without compromising on ease of use.

Oh yeah, MagicPad also has copy and paste support within the app. To select text, simply do a double tap hold, wait for the loupe, and drag. This is the easiest way to select text on the iPhone and you only need a single finger.

The guys over at have been playing with beta copies and have posted some screenshots.

We're currently waiting for Apple to go through their approval process and get the app in the store. When it does I'll keep you posted.
