While you type in the search field all occurrences within the text will be highlighted to give you a complete picture, then with Next and Previous buttons, you can gradually select instances to edit or change them. Even the Find and Replace capabilities in Clean Text have something extra: the options Match Case and Whole Word, act immediately on the highlighted text and will allow you to do the replacements with millimetre accuracy.
See the same text on any device
Switch easily from one device to another, or a Mac.
With Clean Text, you can write text on Mac and then find it on any iOS device. Thanks to iCloud, you will find in Clean Text for iPhone and iPad, exactly the text that you have just typed on Clean Text for Mac. Just use the dedicated popup menu on the toolbar of the Mac version to send the text via iCloud (Clean Text for Mac requires a separate purchase).
Use Regular Expressions

When you search and replace text, if you are an advanced user, you can use Regex (Regular Expressions).

Just go to the Regex pane and choose from the Commonly Used Expressions tray the item you want to insert on the Expression box.
