Write 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 it's speed.

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

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

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

I hate the new icon

But other than that this is a really good app. I mean it is full bodied and does all I need in a word pricessor and with style. I like to look at word processing apps for the fun of it and have downloaded and even purchased several (O.K....many) ove rthe years, and this one is right up there next to WORD and Pages. It will do the usual stuff, plus some glitz, so pretty much do it all. Iahve been using it to write letters, send business correspondence and so on, and at times using a graphic or two, and inserting clip art, so it does that well too. For anything really big guns you cannot beat Microsoft WORD and the OFFICE suite in general, but rather than get Pages, just get Write, and you will have a terrific app for everyday at a great price! BUT, why did the sleek icon I love have to be replaced with this stubbly little really not so pretty icon?! It looks more like a microphone with a pen point on it than a ncie pen....please please revert to the old icon if at all possible.

Hardly worth trying out..

I'm a college student and work part time so I used notes/word/text edit on my Mac a lot but felt unorganized and was looking for a simple word processor that could consolidate my notes.

This application is really shallow. It constantly autocorrects words when I'm typing my notes or papers and will not show the red line underneath the word it automatically corrected. This feature is very primal. For example, I was typing a paper for a class and typed "buyign" but meant to type "buying" (of course) and this autocorrected it into "buy gin". I'm so glad I looked over my paper and found it. Doesn't even make any sense! Simple text errors are autocorrected horribly. And some words such as "chnge" -- it has no dea what you are trying to say (not even a suggestion list!) It has done this to me everyday, multiple times a day. If you are an excellent "typer" then don't worry - this app might be for you. But don't expect it to correct your typos hardly at all.

I gave it 1 star because it kind of gets the job done.. eventually.. with lots of frustration. It is simple in design, but things are compromised because of it. The margin/line spacing/standard text are always off (.7 all edges?? Helvetica??)) so I always have to standardize every new page I open.

Overall, this app has caused me more of a headache than helped me. Defintely go with microsoft word, or any other mainstream text processors. This one is too trivial.

Great so far

Purchased this app after looking for a simple word processor. For the moment I just need it to record notes - the way my thoughts flow, not the way a word processor thinks I need to format. This has been perfect! No crazy auto-formatting, no high price tag. The shortcut keys are simple and intuitive, view of the document is just right and the price is more than reasonable. I have not had to contact anyone for support yet, but I feel good about the built-in feedback feature and seeming openness to accepting questions/ suggestions/ criticism if I one day need to. I can't wait to try this product out when I need to acutally write a paper... Review will be updated then.
