Customer Reviews

Simply extraordinary

Writer is simple and extraordinary; intuitive, easy to use, flexible across iCloud, iDevice and Dropbox. I use it constantly, anytime I have more than a couple of sentences to write, and copy the text into whichever App on my iPad or iPhone that the text is intended. I use Writer in every meeting I sit in on now, whether I am minuting the meeting or taking notes - the simplicity of use in this situation makes this in fact the easiest method to take notes that I have used in my twenty year career in the building and construction industry. I wish this combination was around when I was a student! My recommendation, buy the iOS and OSX versions, sign up to iCloud and Dropbox accounts, and make life easy.

My favourite text writer

I use this app all the time. It is fast simple not complicated saves to iCloud. I can access files from my computer or they can be read and edited by others on the same account. Nothing fancy and the text can be copied to high level processors. The key board is brilliant with the extra editing buttons. I wish apple would have something like it for their keyboards


As an obsessive note-taker, I have used this app for over a year to take notes and write and can say with confidence that it is one of the best. It's fast simplicity and extended keyboard makes it's plain text format easy to use and free of distractions. Coming from someone who prefers to write in Notepad on PC, this has a very similar concentrated feel that's great while on the move.
