iWriter is an app designed to allow you to jot down all your thoughts in one simple interface without the fluff of other writing programs. With its clean, uncluttered appearance you can type away without any distractions of too many features blocking your view.
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.
Great idea, execution is ok
Overall a nice small tool to write stuff and stay focused. But, for a minimalist app, it could have much more features :) The interface should stay minimal, and have great features behind. Fullscreen is one that’s really missing. I’d like to be able to change the font, and change the margins. Would like to put it full screen but have the text take only half the app. Also, the gear icon top right isn’t Retina-ready. Needs a more recent update.
