With support for more than 80 source code and markup languages, Textastic brings the powerful syntax coloring engine of the iOS source code editor to the Mac. Of course you can use your own TextMate-compatible syntax definitions.


Textastic for Mac is based on a newly developed variant of the custom code editor that powers the iOS apps. It uses native Mac OS X APIs like Core Text for maximum speed.


Code completion, file navigation with the symbol list and support for modern Mac features like Auto Save and Versions make your life easier.


With iCloud's Documents in the Cloud, you can sync your files across your range of Mac hardware with ease.
