Så enkel o så bra!

Många gånger som kollegor o vänner sneglat över axeln och frågat (med beundran i rösten) vad det är för program man använder..! Gränssnittet står ut från mängden utan att göra väsen av sig.

Otroligt välgjord programvara!
+ Användarbarheten är slående och designen är avskalad utan att kännas kal. De har ett öga för detaljer.
+ Finns för både iOS och OSX.
+ Inbyggt darkmode som är värt att använda (man kan även byta färg på ikonen) och ifall man använder markdown så har de flera riktigt välgjorda templates.
+ Den finns på både alla enheter gör att man alltid kan nå det man behöver.
+ Man blir inte inlåst i något system liknande Evernote, allt är .txt-filer som du hittar bland dina vanliga filer.
+ De uppdaterar inte super-ofta men det är alltid värdefulla saker som läggs till. Kolla deras release-notes och se även deras filmer.
+ Dokumentationen de har på sin site är to the point och enkel att förstå.
+ De går att få kontakt med, och de är supertrevliga och hjälpsamma.
+ Så gott som kliniskt bugg-fritt.
+ Det går att lita på, känner jag, från ett privacy-perspektiv. Inga konstiga klausuler eller kontor i skatteparadis.
+ Det går att använda både som anteckningsblock och som något att växa med och kanske skriva sin avhandling på. Som en snygg och användbar LaTex. Som dessutom går att använda med ios Shortcuts!

Med det sagt så:
- Det kan vara en inlärningskurva med markdown.
- Jag är inte alltid överens med programmet om hur jag vill använda filerna. Jag vill mest använda dem digitalt och det kn ibland bli lite kluttrigt om man vill göra markdown enligt konstens alla regler.
- I preview-mode kan man inte samtidigt redigera, även om man kan ha bägge vyerna uppe samtidigt.

Simple and powerful (with bugs)

iA Writer makes the writing process easier. The focus mode is underrated and it is a delight to use. It has all useful functions you need, in order to write a basic text.
But there is a problem with iOS selection, it interferes with the app shortcuts and when you select text in the document it bugs out and jumps up and down quickly which takes some of the focused experience away. Otherwise it is one of the best text editors out there.
