***New users: Thanks for choosing the new OmmWriter Gaia, and welcome to the family!***

A wise man once said: “We are all at the mercy of our wild monkey minds. Incessantly swinging from branch to branch”. With multiple windows and applications all vying for our attention, we have sadly adapted our working habits to that of the computer and not the other way around.

OmmWriter is a humble attempt to recapture what technology has snatched away from us today: our capacity to concentrate.

OmmWriter is a tool that makes writing a pleasure again, allowing users to be alone with their thoughts; to concentrate and to write without distractions. More than a word processor, OmmWriter is a place to get inspired.

The secret to OmmWriter lies in its simplicity and apparent lack of functionality. OmmWriter Gaia pays special attention to audio and visual effects that contribute to the overall writing experience. We have spent a considerable amount of research time and effort in the audio-visual experience to promote and enhance creativity. OmmWriter is the fruit of this investigation with new dynamic backgrounds employing Chroma therapy techniques as well as new sound effects. This version, Gaia, is a reflection of its new soothing sound environments and backgrounds inspired by Earth’s natural landscapes. In particular, the nocturnal background, which relaxes your vision (and probably your mood).

If you are a scriptwriter, blogger, journalist, copywriter, poet or just someone who enjoys writing, welcome back to concentrating.

Registration Uncommon and Unwelcome

I was surprised with the software update that requires me to register my personal information just to use this app. The developer states in a previous complaint from another user that registration is not uncommon. I have purchased many apps from the Mac Store and none have required a registration, this being the first one. I enjoyed using Ommwriter, but this requirment changes all of that. I would recommend this app as a ‘No Purchase'

Makes me want to type

Great app, I like everything about it, especially the keystroke sounds — they make me *want* to type, so I can hear them more. I actually find when I move to other apps and am typing that I miss the sounds!

So here is my request for the app developers: a plugin that enables me to use the keystroke sounds in all apps, not just OmmWriter. OmmKeyboard? OmmStroke? OmmClick? I’d love a more water-droppy one too, like the tinkly #5, but even more watery.

Also, the backgrounds are great, but it would be cool to have either more backgrounds (a zen rock garden maybe?) or user-customizable backgrounds. I know that can get in the way, because the point is to reduce distraction and many writers will use searching for just the right backgrounds as a distraction -but- being able to customize those would be nice. I also thought the backgrounds would change automatically according to the time of day and climate — did I misunderstand? I can of course change them manually, but it would be nice if they shifted slowly over time (maybe the colors are shifting and I’m not noticing because it’s so subtle?)

So far, this app has helped me get lots of typing done and out.

A very well made word processor

There are tones of word processors out there, and this one stands out among them.
It's a word processor with musics, sounds and visuals.
That would make you wonder why you get this app when you could simply put your itunes on.

The most exact way to put what I've experienced with this app is - Nature, I felt like I was on a snow field, mountain and nowhere.
It's beautifully simple. It's like medicating. Once I run it, I only care about the letters on the screen. And this really helps since the writing process usually causes me a headache.
If you want to try something different, try this one.
