A simple yet powerful word processing application that enables you to stay focused on your work and shape your ideas while avoiding other distractions
Staying focused and keeping your ideas in order as you work is difficult–especially if you also have to wonder about other things such as fonts, paragraph and line spacings, or other time-consuming settings.
Cross-platform plain text editor designed to help you enjoy writing again
iA Writer is the plain-text editor that promises to keep all distractions away to help you focus on your work from when you start typing. You can buy, download and install this lightweight and user-oriented application from the Mac App Store.
Thanks to iA Writer’s well-designed interface you can increase the flow of ideas and improve your writing. The moment you start typing, the title bar disappears. This distraction-free environment enables you to get your thoughts down on the page.
Built-in support for the Markdown markup language, and easy conversion to and from the DOCX, HTML and PDF document formats
For deeper focus, there is also an included Focus Mode, a feature that helps you concentrate on the current sentence by fading out the surrounding text. On top of that, the Markdown formatting system lets you structure your documents without taking your hands off the keyboard to grab a mouse.
iA Writer can convert Markdown to DOCX documents and vice versa via drag-and-drop in just a couple of seconds. Thanks to iCloud integration you can easily synchronize your work across devices.
Focus-centered and minimalist text editor for users who want to concentrate on their writing
While the word and character counter helps you keep track of your work’s length, Reading Time shows you how much time is required to read your text. In addition, iA Writer features an easy-to-find blue cursor that can be spotted quickly and easily regardless of the resolution of your Mac's display.
All in all, iA Writer is a highly versatile and powerful text editor designed from the ground up to provide a distraction-free writing environment for authors, students and journalists alike.
