Best text writer out there

I love this program. It’s a helluva markdown/text editor. I like how it is organized and set up. I use these distraction free programs to work on first drafts and sketch things out and this is a great program for that. I once used Ulysses to do this, but when they went to monthly subscriptions, I left them. Now I have iWriter Pro and am not looking back. It syncs well on iCloud (have not tried Dropbox) which is excellent for me as I am rarely home to work on the desktop and most often write on an iPad Pro.

I also like how the background color can change from the glaring white that so often burns the eyes. I use the sun choice.

This is an excellent program for what it does and I’m glad I found it.

I use this as my writing space

After I finish my session I ship off the writing to another app. Gives me the focus feature without costing me $30 like iA Writer, which I’m planing on getting but not now.

Love it!

After trying other similar apps, this one is by far the best one. Definitely worth the 5 STARS!!!!!
