Don't have an iPad, but Elements supposedly supports it. I use Elements all the time on my iPhone and would definitely recommend it. Especially if you do anything with Markdown. (It can convert and display it as HTML on the fly.)

It might respect the Finder setting on this, but I haven't tried.

Until every platform agrees on a way to store metadata and every network protocol is updated to transmit that metadata along with the file, I think we're stuck using extensions.
