Customer Reviews

Good, not great, should improve as iOS 9.0.1 is not perfect for many apps

At the iOS 9.0.0 release, iA Writer was usable - but not as terrible some reviews claim it was. I have an iPhone 5S that has quite a bit of miles on it, for a 2+ year old iPhone, this app (and iOS 9.0.1) work almost flawlessly together. I have an iPad AIR (~18 months old I think, not sure) but iA Writer is solid on it as well - for those who want to use Geekbench scores for comparison to how your device may handle the app (users should leave their iOS device specs w/ ratings...many bad reviews can easily be from 4S users who refuse to upgrade.) **If you truly want a fast and easy-to-integrate-with-cloud-drives/Evernote etc., you should just go with Quick Drafts or Drafts, both are superior apps and 5 star worthy.**

This is a good faux-markdown editor with fast accessibility/loading to saved notes, but I'd suggest writing your notes elsewhere and pasting them/accessing them via cloud drives through here.

Great App, Syncs Perfect

I've been using iAWriter a lot since I first got the OS X version. This latest release, for both Mac & iOS are an entirely redone app (for the better in my opinion). So if you're reading reviews that slam the app, take a step back and realize some people just don't like new version for misc reasons. As far as the iOS app is concerned, It does what it says. It syncs great. It has a beautiful "dark-mode". The developers were nice and attentive when I sent a few bug reports in. They solved the bugs in a short period of time. The menu system might throw you off at first bec they adopted a "desktop-like" format, but it works fine and after 2 days of using it, I actually preferred it that way. Great app. I'll be using it to edit my blog articles on-the-go. And pick it up where I left off at home on the Mac.

All Issues Fixed...

The problems were fixed in this update. All is well again. I will leave the old review text here... Just for the record.

***Old review follows***

I really wanted to like this newer newer version, as I love the original. I never did the Pro upgrade because I loved the original.

Even saw the bad reviews here, and went looking for more external reviews to see more before I spent the $10. After seeing on the dev's website that this will be the only version to be maintained, and I do love the original, I went ahead and bought.

My two biggest complaints is it kept failing the dropbox connection when I was editing and if I tried to load a newly converted iOS 9 note from Dropbox the app locked up.

Needs more work, and not worth $10

And, I have no complaints as the others here. The writing experience is as minimalist as ever, and the iCloud saving seems to work with no problems, also.

I will continue to use the app. Will return to upgrade rating if ever fixed.
