SNAPSHOTS [.write extension only]
You can use the snapshot feature to freeze versions of your document, so that you can easily revert to them if you ever have the need. Snapshots are saved along with the file, and carried from device to device. This lets you work with several drafts all in a single file, without having to constantly "save as", etc.

-Minimal design: Focus just on your content
-Snapshots: Version your document with ease [.write extension only]
-Export to text (.txt) at any time
-iOS Inspired Shortcuts: Double tap space bar to enter a period. Use autocorrect to fix common misspellings.

Frequently used, very satisfied


This is one of the apps that I’ve used most consistently over the past 3 years. Its utility is derived from its simplicity; sometimes I just want a window in which I can write my thoughts, and nothing more. There is no adjusting font size. No formatting. Not even bullets. By removing these distractions, I am left with the simplist applicaiton to get the job done, and I love it.

Very Nice


The recent update fixed the problems I was having with this app. It seems to work beautifully now, making it, easily, the best app I have for working on documents across multiple devices from OSX to iOS without having to convert formats -- and I've tried a half-dozen other apps without much joy.

The interface is clean, simple, and easy to use, allowing me to just do my thing without unhelpful and distracting bells and whistles.

Exactly the app I wanted and needed. Well done on the update.

Good Idea Behind It….


The idea behind Compositions is to have a simple, minimalist text editing program. And it does just that. There is a nice title, and a word counter which is usually useful. The text is a nice font and size. However, every time I go to print something, the application stops working and I have to force quit it. Also, the fact that it automatically saves in ".write" is really annoying because ".write" is not supported in any other common file viewer (i.e. Pages, Preview, Adobe Reader) I was unable to convert the document to a PDF, which was a bit frustrating. It's also hard to export the document.
