An Org Mode file viewer for iOS and Android


What is Org Mode?

Imagine a plain-text markup language like Markdown, but married to an application that is a literate programming environment and life organizer. In Emacs.


I started taking notes in Org Mode at work, then found myself wanting to view them on my tablet in meetings. By default on iOS you can't open an .org file at all, as the OS doesn't even know that it's plain text.

Other mobile Org Mode apps are focused on very different things like to-dos or task management; Orgro is instead first and foremost a viewer, letting you see and search the contents of your org files.

I also wanted to try writing a parser with PetitParser; the result powers this application and is available as a separate library, org_parser.


  • Syntax highlighting for most Org Mode syntax structures
  • Expand and collapse sections, blocks, and drawers
  • Reflow text for easy viewing on narrow screens
  • Pretty table rendering
  • Functional external links and section links
  • Visibility cycling
  • Search
  • Narrowing
  • "Reader mode" where extraneous markup is hidden
  • Inline and block LaTeX rendering
  • Jump to/from footnotes
  • Limited editing capability (details)

See the manual for details.


Many Org Mode syntax structures are highlighted but not meaningfully interpreted.
