Description

Meet Focused, formally known as Typed - the writing & Markdown app that blocks out distractions and clutter, and aids your focus so you can just write.

We firmly believe the typewriter gives you the best writing experience. That's why we've completely re-built Focused from the ground up, typewriter first!

Focused has the best typewriter experience on the Mac!

“Focused has separated itself from the pack by very intentionally not packing itself full of features that many users won't touch, instead focusing of the pure writing experience as the core element to get right.” — iMore

If you’re writing for the web, or quickly outlining longer articles, Focused features a full complement of keyboard shortcuts to both format and structure as you write. Quickly mark headings, Bold & Italics, Add Links - all easily within reach.

When you sit down to write, getting in the “zone” as quickly as possible is imperative. So when creating Focused we carefully studied the ideal environment - and built it. There’s Full Screen as you would expect, and then there’s Zen Mode. Eight carefully selected ambient soundtracks that heighten your focus - from rain to wind and more. All perfect for keeping calm and creating great content when you’re on a deadline.

Features

- No clutter, no distractions. Just a perfectly honed set of tools to help you write and stay focused on the task at hand.
- Filter out life’s distractions with 8 calming soundtracks that aid your focus, allowing you to concentrate on your writing.
- Need to hit a word count, or stick to a character limit? Focused keeps you on target without cluttering your workspace.
- The dog will never eat your homework again - Auto Save keeps your content safe, with Versions support to retrieve an edit.
- Typewriter & Focus modes: Focused vertically centres and highlights just the sentence or paragraph you’re working on. Great no matter whether you’re editing or writing.
- Built to help you write for the web without the need to know any code - Focused generates it all for you, and uses Markdown syntax to keep your writing easily readable.
- Never leave the keyboard again, with comprehensive keyboard shortcuts to help you structure and format.

Focused is not just a distraction-free writing app - it’s the first writing app that actually aids your focus, and we think you’ll love it.

Customer Reviews

Here and Zen

Michael G..

Typed is a hybrid between the ‘aesthetic’ and a markdown editor, more specifically its a markdown editor, with a pretty, “visually balanced” interface and cool background tracks.
I believe the app captures a gap in the market. If we define writing apps into 4 categories:
* Structured writing (big pieces of work), e.g. Ulyses, Scrivener;
* Markdown editors, e.g. IA Writer, Byword;
* All singing and dancing, e.g. Pages, Mellel and that other one of course ;) ;
* Aesthetic, e.g. Ommwriter and now Typed. Note, Ommwriter’s original ’Zen' tracks were removed and sold separately on iTunes.
The above is not an exhaustive list … but the point is I’d be struggling to name another ‘aesthetic’ writing app.

Plus points:
* The writing environment is very pretty, its ‘transparency’ mode creates an interwoven set of pastel shades (Desktop depending).
* I like the sound tracks a lot .. very Zen.
* The functionality of a markdown editor is cool, e.g. easily connecting to an online image, inline.
Minus points
* The number of visual themes is low in this version
* The blurb suggests a large number of different visual backdrops, these appear to be Desktops

Bugs:
I wrote a 1300 word report and it appeared to truncate the top section of the document on export to html or rtf and the “view” mode no longer functioned.

Good

Typed is a really nice programme. Which is more than I can say for this ghastly page with almost unreadable white type on sickly green background.
