Clean Writer

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Become more creative with the refreshing distraction-free plain text editor that boosts inspiration and fights writer's block by hiding away extra options. Featured on PCWorld, MacWorld, or

Built for creative people(bloggers, journalists, writers, etc.) who want to FOCUS on the content writing instead of wasting energy formatting or tweaking the design.

It only handles Plain Text files such as .txt, .md, .html, etc and will NOT open .doc, .rtf or .pdf. It even conveniently hides such files when browsing Dropbox folders, to prevent confusion. (If you need access to non plain text documents, you have to export them to plain text format from Word, Pages, Text Edit or other document processing software).

* NEW! Markdown preview and conversion
* custom user-definable shortcuts in the extended kb row
* Multiple Color Themes & Font Selection
* CLUTTER-FREE Interface with GESTURES - pinch font zoom, tap for quick jump to start/end of text, swipes for File, Preferences or Help panels
* EXTENDED KEYBOARD row on demand, with quick navigation and common symbols
* DROPBOX - easy access to your plain text files by downloading them from the cloud. Upload to the cloud your local files for backup.
* CONNECTED - receive and send files from/to external apps, iTunes sync, send files as email attachments
* SMART - live counter of chars, words and lines; autosaves files when needed but also on demand; intelligent file names defaults that prevents accidents

Clean Writer was the first distraction-free plain text editor for iPad, and now it's redesigned and improved with a new UI, gesture-driven workflow, options hidden from sight, color themes and more.

Clean Writer: the fresh, powerful and less expensive iPad plain text editor

Promising, but now abandoned

Regrettably, the developer appears to have abandoned what was a promising writing app. No updates since mid-2012. The interface is fairly intuitive, but the app appears to harbor a number of bugs, especially now that we're a couple of iOS versions down the road since the app was last updated. I like the look and feel of Cleanwriter, but it isn't worth an investment now, and I will have to give it the axe. I can't trust an abandoned app with important files. Too bad.

Lost all my edits

I downloaded this last night to do the final edits on a short story for submission to a magazine. After two hours of detailed editing, I went to upload the file from Dropbox and learned that all of my edits were gone. I can’t say that I’d recommend this software until you can be certain that your text will be there when you want it. Very unreliable.


The update is good. There is one problem though. I would be writing on the app and then all of a sudden it would blank out on me. When i would go back in, what i have been writing recently would be gone. Help!!
