scoring

Scoring is confusing since some of the scores are over 5. Headings says score 1-5.

Thank you

Thanks so much for pointing that out. 

As I was the reviewer, I have recalculated the scores accordingly.

Nebulous Notes

Can I put in a vote for Nebulous Notes - a text editor for creating notes and posting them to Dropbox?  Its main benefits are simplicity and robustness, combined with a great, customisable keyboard, so you don't have to keep using shift or the numeric keys for entering common keystrokes.

Works on iPad and iPhone.
