The front of the docking station has a cradle to hold an iPhone of iPad while it charges. Encased in zinc alloy material, the SimpleDock's aesthetic matches that of a MacBook.

Updated PlainText offers iOS 7 styling, extended keyboard, sync fixes

Hog Bay Software's PlainText has received an update for iOS 7. Intended to be a simple text editor, PlainText saves to DropBox and iCloud for easy remote access to documents. Version 2.0 has revamped its style, creating a minimalist appearance. The interface aims to be more physical in nature, with a sliding motion revealing a keyboard drawer underneath the document view. Also included in the latest version is a new sharing panel, support for dynamic font sizes, and syncing fixes for cloud storage saving. Available on iTunes, PlainText 2.0 is free to download.
