Mellel for iPad

It’s Here! Mellel for iPad has arrived, and as someone sometime said: it’s wonderful.

First, you can read all about it on our iPad page here.

Now we can blab at some length… or maybe just refer you to our newsletter about this. Nah, we’ll do both.

To start, the obligatory links:

Mellel for iPad is a sibling to Mellel for Mac, and includes many of the features offered with Mellel (and more will come in the near future), adjusted for work on the iPad.

Mellel for the iPad supports features such as Outline, character and paragraph styling and styles, footnotes and endnotes, track-changes and comments, auto-titles, find and replace, tables, word count, and a lot more.

Even better – if you’re a Mellel for Mac user, you’re in luck, as Mellel for iPad is the perfect on-the-road companion for Mellel for Mac: All the features, options and settings set with Mellel are displayed with Mellel for iPad, including cross-references, citations, specially set styles and setups, and so on.

You can start working on a document on your Mac, continue working on your iPad, move back to the Mac, and add minor touches, comments, or track changes back on your iPad. Your documents will stay constant between the two platforms.

And there’s nothing simpler than moving between your iPad and the Mac. If you’re using iCloud Drive, in fact, you do not have to do anything: just keep your document in the Mellel folder or any other folder you wish to have the document in – and it’ll be there, up-do-date, no matter if the changes were made on your iPad or on your Mac.

It’s equally simple if you wish to use email or a third-party cloud device, such as DropBox or Box – just drop it there, and you’re done.

Mellel for iPad is just $19 on the App Store.

Write to us here what you think about the new Mellel for iPad…

    I really love it! I think it’s a great feature set at launch. I often carry my laptop just to have Mellel so I’m really glad to have it for iPad. I really hope it will soon integrate with Sente for iPad also!

    Does the iPad version support multi-language (Hebrew and English) documents?

    The only review on the app store right now for the iPad app is a killer; is it true that the program cannot access Dropbox? It would certainly be in your best interests to encourage or enable a few long term users to get reviews up there.

    OK, so here is my most burning question: Will it be possible to export to rtf (or maybe even word)?

    I am very excited about the new Mellel for iPad! I You guys have done a great job capturing the essence of Mellel.
    I posted some specific questions about features on the Mellel Forum, and can post them here if you prefer, but for starters, I love it. I dig the cool organ typewriter icon, too!

    Does the sync also work with Bookends refs? Ie. if I have a Mellel doc with BE refs in it, sync my BE library to IOS, add refs from my BE IOS to the Mellel doc in IOS and then continue work in OSX will there be any problems?


    From: Johannes Comment posted on: 8-9-2015
  11. It is not currently possible to add references from BE to Mellel on the iPad – but we’re thinking how to enable this working (as a reminder: the iPad was until recently fairly hostile to two applications working at the same time…).
