Simple. Fast. Powerful.

Write 2 is a cute, lightweight word processor for our daily writing tasks. It is fast, clean, intuitive to use and has a native (Mac-like) and uncluttered interface.

Most important of all - it is very user-friendly.

In most cases there is no need to use Word.
We don't need its jam-packed interface and least of all its speed.

Write 2 has some nifty features and tools that are sure to make it
your word processor of choice for all your daily writing tasks.

Of course, Write 2 inherently has read and write support to common file formats like Text, Rich Text, Word and OpenOffice Documents.

Have I already mentioned that Write 2 is fast, very fast, and stable?

Please notice - Write 2 is not designed and written to completely replace Word. That's not its job. And it never will be. Period.

It's the word processor for the rest of us.

For those who just simply want to write and for all those missing WriteNow :-)

Ratings and Reviews

Great at first but problems with latest update.


I loved this app initially and stopped using Apple’s Pages altogether. But now every time I open a document created in Write 2, the margins are changed, random widths, different every time. Every time I open it I get different margin widths. Margins are set at default. Have contacted the author who replied the first time but not the second. No fix yet. Can’t really use the app this way. Would rate it at 5 stars had this problem not come up. Now gets two since I really can’t use it. Will update review if there is a fix soon.

Update for Version 2.5.2. Random margin changes have not been fixed. Drop my rating to one star at this point and do not recommend spending the money for this app.

It’s my go to word processor now


It doesn’t get too difficult to understand or get glitchy, it actually is very simple and easy to use. It is very polished. It is fast and clean overall. The autocorrect mimics that of iOS.

However, there was one thing I think they could fix. For some reason, when you first create the document, you can expand the page to be full screen, but once you open it up again, it stays as a little rectangle in the middle with a lot of bordering.

I never have any other problems with it. It doesn’t cost that much money, only about 5 bucks. Which is good if you use it a lot, like I do. I feel like if you want to handle really large documents and research or manuscrips and whatnot, go for something a little more sophisticated. But for anybody who wants something quick and simple, buy this! Who needs all those bizarre features.

Only what it needs to be and no more

What a gift it was finding this application. I have long bemoaned the fact that we don't have something simple and effective in the way that, say, MS Word '95 was. More features does not equal "better," and can truly interfere with the writer's ability to communicate.

I give Write 2 high marks. Have not experienced the problems other reviewers have. It's a simple, friendly interface, and it will generate documents that are more complicated than anything I will ever need. A word processing application should be a tool. A good tool doesn't remind you of its presence; it helps you do the job and you shouldn't have to think about the tool. After the nightmare of having to use MS Word professionally and deal with all of its bizarre "features," Write 2 is liberating.

More apps like this app, please.
