Write 2 - The word processor in simple, fast, and powerful

By Michael Göbel

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.

Description

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 :-)

Creative writing, Michael (MOApp).

Customer 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.
