# The Simple Writing App
iA Writer removes distractions. Giving you a calm, focused, writing space, so you can express yourself clearly.

Focus Mode dims everything but the current sentence or paragraph, helping you stay in the flow.

When you tap and hold a key in the command keyboard, you’re given the chance to choose your own layout. Rearrange your keys, or pick new ones from the extensive list.

You can open documents and launch frequent actions in no time with the new Quick Search. It lives in the keyboard so it’s always close at hand.

# Work
iA Writer includes an inverted light-on-dark-mode, perfect for working day and night.

Spot superfluous adjectives, weak verbs, repetitive nouns, false conjunctions and clean your text of the usual rumble.

When we want to hunker down and type without distraction, one of our favourite resources is iA Writer. Substantially updated since its initial release, this writing app offers a customisable keyboard, selective text highlighting, iCloud sync and many other features we’ve come to depend on. Plus, a streamlined interface lets you simply swipe left to preview a document and swipe right to access your library. The entire experience is designed to be quick and easy so you can focus on your work.

Fantastic. New to Markdown though

I’ve given up on storyist 4. Hopeless and disinterested support. When searching for an alternative I found IA WRITER. As a newbie to markdown the app is intuitive and easy to use. I’ve been able to family share the app with my partner. She is my first line editor and so my work flow has been greatly improved. Formatting manuscripts is always a nightmare and this app has done much to reduce my pain. I still have much to learn however. IA Writer is now a part of my daily work flow.

All essentials for writing anything

This app is a great one time payment for anyone wanting to write anything: note taking, ideation, blog posts, novels, plays and poems. I like the fact that this app has no other unnecessary features like the competition and makes you focus on your most important task at hand : writing.
For me, it activates my zen mode because it’s such a joy to write on it.
Please keep it subscription-free :)
