Simple. Fast. Powerful.

Write 2 is a cute, lightweight word processor for our daily writing tasks. It is fast, clean, intuitive to use and has a native (Mac-like) and uncluttered interface.

Most important of all - it is very user-friendly.

In most cases there is no need to use Word.
We don't need its jam-packed interface and least of all its speed.

Write 2 has some nifty features and tools that are sure to make it
your word processor of choice for all your daily writing tasks.

Of course, Write 2 inherently has read and write support to common file formats like Text, Rich Text, Word and OpenOffice Documents.

Have I already mentioned that Write 2 is fast, very fast, and stable?

Please notice - Write 2 is not designed and written to completely replace Word. That's not its job. And it never will be. Period.

It's the word processor for the rest of us.

For those who just simply want to write and for all those missing WriteNow :-)

Ratings and Reviews

HiMyNamesLewis ,


Download was painful, had to reboot my laptop for it to install. After this i managed to get it up and running, for the first day it seemed great untill i attempted to save my work, im no computer geek but for some odd reason the save option was unavailable. After minimising it to google the problem i attempted to re-open it which caused my computer to momentarily crash, it then closed the app and deleted my work without saving. I would of looked past the dodgy installation and given the app a good rating but after this incident i can't give an un-reliable app above a 1 star rating. F.R.U.S.T.R.A.T.I.N.G.

Does exactly what it says it does

If you need a mega powerful word processor then go download Office for Mac. If, like me, you need something that does all the simple everyday things that you'll ever need easely and efficiently and at 5% of the price of Office then get this.

Works perfectly, had no probs at all

Clean, simple, fast and reliable

After writing a review and giving it 5 stars, I’ve had a few relatively minor issues with it. I’d still say it’s been fairly solid, but not rock solid. It does do what I expect *most* of the time when I cut and paste from other sources.
