Ratings and Reviews
Best text writer out there
I love this program. It’s a helluva markdown/text editor. I like how it is organized and set up. I use these distraction free programs to work on first drafts and sketch things out and this is a great program for that. I once used Ulysses to do this, but when they went to monthly subscriptions, I left them. Now I have iWriter Pro and am not looking back. It syncs well on iCloud (have not tried Dropbox) which is excellent for me as I am rarely home to work on the desktop and most often write on an iPad Pro.
I also like how the background color can change from the glaring white that so often burns the eyes. I use the sun choice.
This is an excellent program for what it does and I’m glad I found it.
Simple, clean & fully functional
iWriter Pro is quite simply the best app on iOS in regards to distraction free writing. It's iCloud and Dropbox support as well as its document management abilities are fantastic and simple to use. There is no bloat here, just focused execution. I am very much looking forward to the OS X app.
Will not link to Dropbox
Absolutely refuses to link to Dropbox, though it's linking fine in regular iWriter and in all other apps. I really want the search feature, but without Dropbox it is useless.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
