Nebulous Notes, my Dropbox text editor for the iPad/iPhone, is available now!

Apple just approved my latest creation, Nebulous Notes, which does one thing, and one thing really well: edit text files in the cloud. If you're like me, you are constantly editing text files, and based on my survey of all the available tools out there, Dropbox is the smartest way to backup your files and access them anywhere.
Nebulous Notes lets you edit your text files that are stored on your Dropbox. Here are some screenshots, see for yourself:
Reviews have already started to trickle in! Here's what AppAdvice.com had to say: "This is quite possibly the best tool for any writer, blogger, or journalist that needs to get work done on-the-go, and also live by Dropbox, which is one of the easiest ways to manage files in the cloud."
If you're a developer, I've also open-sourced the file management interface, which shouldn't take no more than an hour to integrate into your iOS apps. For example, if you have an app that lets you record memos or organize photos, rather than forcing users to FTP their files off their iPhone, or have to email the files to themselves, or sync to their iTunes, you can just let them save to their Dropbox accounts.

I just bought Nebulous Notes, and the very first thing to strike me is that the app doesn't support tilt-for-widescreen. If you're going to do any serious typing this is a necessity. Are you planning to add this in in a future update?
