Share your thoughts, keep your privacy.
Write.as is a simple writing tool and publishing platform. There's no sign up — just open the app, write something, and publish.
Published posts get a secret, unique link on Write.as. Once it's there, you can easily send that link to others, or keep it to yourself. In either case, you stay private because we don't collect personal information about you.
Use Write.as to share your thoughts, write a long tweet, make a blog post without the blog, or just keep notes for yourself — Write.as is simple and flexible enough to be your go-to writing app whenever an idea strikes, and always opens to a blank page to start writing on immediately.

Ratings and Reviews
Great site. App works fine but is ultimately pointless
This is a good app as far as it goes, and I’m a huge fan of write.as itself as a platform. I’ve found the app to be a good if minimalist text editor, and it’s proven to be stable so far. I also like that it can store multiple drafts, which is something the main site can’t do.
But that’s its only real advantage, other than offline mode, and there are plenty of other text editors on the App Store.
If you do keep an actual blog under a username, there’s no way to use the app to publish to it. This is doubly annoying given that paid tiers on the site allow your content to show up on read.write.as (among other things), but the lack of login makes this impossible to take advantage of without using a web browser. There's no way to pull a post published by the app into your actual blog, which is just as well (from both security and convenience standpoints).
As it stands, you have to log in via Safari, and then copy and paste your whole post over. This isn’t the end of the world, but it’s a strange design choice. You can’t even use the share menu in iOS, since the app won’t show it until you’ve published the entry as an anonymous post!
With that being the case, it’s not clear to me why using the app is better than writing in Pages and then copying and pasting into the website via Safari, or just writing the whole post in Safari to begin with. At least then I can use my actual blog, and can take advantage of the different tiers of paid account.
Simple, clean, easy to understand. Wonderful app.
