Customer Reviews

First app I go to when I begin writing

Really great and simple to use app with iCloud integration. I use iA Writer as the go to for my first drafts, idea noting, outlining and on more than one occasion full composition of papers. In the past I had gone directly to Word or Pages, but discovered iA Writer allows me to get straight into the important bit, the words, not the formatting or layouts, this improves the overall writing process for me.
