Private Writer

By Think Tap Work

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Named #1 Best iPhone App for Writers in 2011 by Hide your messages from onlookers or simply use it as a distraction-free writing environment.

Keep prying eyes at bay. Private Writer acts as a privacy shield for your phone, hiding your personal message while you are composing it. One touch reveal button displays your text for editing. Send your messages to Twitter, Facebook, Email, SMS, or just copy them to your clipboard. Your message is auto-saved when you close the app (including iCloud syncing, if enabled).

The Pro upgrade makes Private Writer ad-free. This makes for a great distraction-free writing environment. So distraction-free you can't even see the words you type.

What's New in Version 1.5

We are pleased to announce upgrades to Private Writer
- Alerts when text is revealed
- Overlays to hide text when sending Email, and iOS 5 Twitter messages

You can still see the text. It's white. I love the idea but please make the text completely invisible.
