L'éditeur de texte parfait

Que dire qui n'est pas déjà été dit dans les autres avis, dans les tests, dans les multiples articles sur cette perle ?

C'est conçu et créé avec soin, dans les moindres détails.
Les options inclues sont celles dont vous avez besoin.
Celles qui ne le sont pas vous éviteront de perdre du temps.

L'expérience est extrêmement bien pensée, et a un côté libérateur : avec un outil aussi raffiné et abouti au bout des doigts, la technologie ne se fait plus obstacle, ou même aide, elle est le prolongement de la pensée.

Et avec la possibilité d'avoir toujours ça dans votre poche, et vos documents synchronisés entre votre iPhone, votre iPad et votre ordinateur, c'est un nouveau monde qui s'ouvre à vous.

Supprimez Snapchat, Instagram, et Facebook. Supprimez toutes les applis que vous consommez. À la place, installez iA Writer, et créez — que ce soit un journal pour mieux vous comprendre et grandir, que ce soit le scénario de votre future web-série, que ce soit un livre que vous avez toujours rêvé d'écrire, que ce soit les recettes de votre grand-mère pour les transmettre un jour à vos enfants, ou encore un article de votre site, peu importe. Créez.

Fonction recherche / navigation long document

Application a fort potentiel qui peut facilement détrôner les concurrents comme Ulysses.
Mais à quand une fonction de recherche aussi puissante et la possibilité de naviguer dans un document comportant beaucoup de titre et de partie ?
