Best Text Editor for iPhone?

I would like to write some FanFiction, and I am going to Italy in a few days, so excited!

Anyway, I tried Docs2Go, however it lagged heavily. I also tried just using the Notes feature, but I was unable to change the font and send the actual text file to my Computer to be able to upload it or print it off.

Is there any good ones? Thanks for anyone who replies.

You can use Nebulous(0.99) with DropBox(Free)
or use SimpleNote(Free) with DropBox(Free)

For SimpleNote to be really useful, you need to subscribe.

Both of these are very capable options with excellent cloud syncing and very well supported programs.

I haven't tried it yet, but Evernote.com also has an iPhone App and a desktop app and a website. Evernote works with nearly every computer, phone and mobile device out there. It also works with snapshots, audio, etc. It's $5 per month or $45 per year for syncing.

I've been using Safe Note Free and transferring files using Fileapp free, but that doesn't provide syncing.

Simplenote looks really nice. It looks like it does almost everything for free. Why do you say "to be really useful, you need to subscribe"?
