Customer Reviews

Completely new to this, but I figured it out-ish.

This morning I searched for “book writing app” and “Write” came up as one of the 5 best. I bought a copy. Several hours later I had a simple text file with several dozen images and links in place. I sized and created composite images using Ps. I used Full Screen to stay focused: it worked. After a break I went looking for ANY information on how to use “Write”. I eventually found my way to the “Multimarkdown User’s Guide by Fletcher T. Penney. From that I learned how to *italicize* and **mark bold**. My document included two equations, but no matter how I tried I could not get Write to respond to the syntax suggested by Penney. I will have to keep looking, or find a Forum dedicated to new users. So far, so good.

SLOW and FREEZE typing

Over 2,000 words, typing speed goes down and down. It becomes really slow.

Write - very nice app

Nice app. I have been using nvALT, but purchased this one because of its has the ability to share notes between iOS and OS X. A few things I would like to see:

* enhanced search (a search for two words *only* finds notes with those two words next to each other in order)
* more keyboard control (e.g., switching between libraries, renaming files, honoring ESC and DELETE from delete note modal dialog box)
* ability to hide or resize the library and documents columns
* full support for iCloud Drive (currently it stores iCloud files down in the old iCloud folder structure)
* should hide markdown information for links in Rich MD mode

These are nitpicks, and I’m confident the developer will address some of these in future updates (the most recent update had a lot of new features and I have no reason to doubt additional features will continue to be incorporated). Well worth the purchase price. Keep up the good work!
