Customer Reviews

Use it all the time for work

I use this app all the time to take meeting notes. I use the Dropbox integration so they are always available for everyone else to see - and it works great.

My only request is that the character set doesn't match wordpad. And once I open it in wordpad I am not able to re-open the file on my iPad. this means I can only open it in notepad and the line feeds don't match so all of the sentences run after be another.

Notepad user?

If you use Notepad on your PC or something similar on your Mac then Writer will be a breathe of fresh air on your iPad. The control of the cursor is perfect for editing and it makes typing on the iPad easy and focussed work. I've accidentally used undo without realising and lost a sentence or two which is my only gripe. Other than that a great app for typing on your iPad.

Love this program

I use Writer as my primary writing tool on all my Apple devices, including iMac. I compose blog posts, write correspondence, record notes and ideas. It helps me focus on my writing. My favourite device to use it on is my iPad but it works equally well everywhere.
