# 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.
Don’t worry about the format. First, write in plain text. Then preview in HTML.
Search, sort, and quickly swap between documents from different clouds.
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.
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.
Customize your templates and export to WordPress or Medium, HTML, Microsoft Word (.docx), or PDF.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
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.
Best writing app BUT SYNC LATENCY
Best distraction-free writng app ever. BUT I face a SYNC LATENCY PROBLEM between devices while using iCloud folder for the notes.
Developer Response ,
Thank you~! There are some iCloud bugs on iOS 13 that can sometimes impede file operations (incl. sync). Restarting your device should resolve these system-level issues. If you are using a device with cellular capability, it may also help to ensure iCloud Drive is enabled in Cellular settings :-)
It needs some improvements.
I think new fonts should be added. And maybe a couple new theme.
