Ratings and Reviews
Definitely worth the sale price!
I purchased iWriter mostly on a whim, while looking for a word processing application. Definitely one of the best things I've ever bought for under $5. It's a simple application, maybe even too simple for some people; it doesn't enable things like italics, bolding, font changes or even type size changes (if you enlarge the text, the entire work enlarges with it).
The different page templates are lovely, and I can't really complain about the lack of font-flexability, as I'm fan of typewriters. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the application also keeps track of how many characters, words and paragraphs you have in a file, an invaluable bonus for those of us who have specific word goals to meet.
All in all, this application does exactly what it says. It's simple, but useful, and I'm very pleased with my purchase.
Exactly what I was looking for
I wanted an app that gave me a blank white page for writing. iWriter provides this capability perfectly. When you go full screen, there’s nothing on the screen to distract you as you put words on the page.
It does feel like you’re using a typewriter, but without all of the drawbacks of typewriters of old, like needing to use a special ribbon or correction fluid to wipe out typos. It even uses a typewriter-esque font.
If all you’re looking for is a blank piece of paper for you to type on, this is your application. If you are looking for a cheap general word processor, keep looking since this program doesn’t have — and doesn’t need — all of the features of Pages or Word.
A useless app if you write on Mac and iOS
I admit to my own carelessness in making me regret my purchase. On the mac app store it doesn’t specifically say it has icloud support. But the same app on the ios app store trumpets icloud support. Apparently that support is only between iphone and iPad.
That’s very lame, and something I spent a couple bucks on the mac app and a couple more on the iphone app to learn. I didn’t want to spend the 30 bucks on iAwriter, and this looks really nice and is good for writing. But it lacks icloud support and lacks a dark mode (both are things that the ios version of this same app have).
I know there’s no getting my money back, but its sad they are still selling such a product and haven’t updated it.
They have a new “pro” version out, but at 5 bucks for the mac app and 5 bucks for the ios app I don’t think I want to take a chance of 10 more dollars that they’ll be deceptive about that too. Bummer, because I liked the mechanics and they look better than their competition.
Wish I could trust the pro app to be decent, but at this point I’ll probably cut my losses and go with iAWriter instead. Once I can spare the 30 bucks for that overproiced software.
Also, I can’t open .txt files. Pure waste of my money.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
