There's an App for that - TextEdit Genius

or

KWrite — Text Editor with PDF export & translator

or

Pages for iPad

I have Pages 1.6.2 on my iPad. It does not (yet) see TextEdit files saved to iCloud from my desktop. It sees Pages files OK. By "yet" I mean, is there something I need to do?

I'll have to experiment with it and see how to force Pages to open simple documents.

How about Evernote? I haven't tried especially TextEdit files with it, but whenever I need some text (pictures etc) on the road, that's what I usually end up using. Write the documents on the iPad or the Mac, then when home or on the road, use the other devices to continue editing them, and if later needed on something else, just export it where needed.

I use Notes for simple text stuff. I don't have some compelling need for text files on my iPad, I'm just wondering out loud why Apple bothered to make desktop TextEdit aware of iCloud without providing a way to use the files away from the desktop.
