Nearly Perfect

I had gotten this writing app to use while I was in the process of moving and had my actual computer packed away. Since I already used my tablet for drawing, why not also writing? This app makes it super simple to do it all, I actually barely touch my computer anymore.

The UI is extremely simple to us and very minimalistic; ads are unintrusive, honestly only ever showing during the file selection screen for me (although I may also just get into a groove and don’t notice anything pop up in the actual document writing). It’s pretty much distraction free writing in a very portable device that, with the help of a Bluetooth keyboard, is a lot easier to travel with. Couple it with the screen splitting function if you like to watch videos and write (like I do), and you’re good to go

I only have one gripe with it; themes are only available for .txt files. I work a lot with minimal lighting, so being able to use a dark or color inverted theme is extremely helpful for my eyes. It also helps not keep me wide awake if I’m working late into the night; but .txt files don’t have all the same capabilities that a .rtf file does.

Some sort of ability to change the background color of .rtf documents to ease eye-strain a bit would honestly make this my go-to writing platform and I’d honestly move all of my works onto my tablet and solely use it for all of my job.

Love it, but one thing

This app is great. I’ve been using it for close to two years now. I like the simple format and the organization of documents into neat folders, and also the fact that you can write regardless of your connection to WiFi.

But there is one feature that this app is missing: the ability to see your edit history. Whenever I hit the info button on a document, it always tells me that the last time I opened it was just now (showing whatever time it is) and the last time I saved it was also just now. I’d love to see a feature that saves the date and time when you created a document and shows it to you! This way I can look back at old things I wrote and see the date when I wrote it. Right now, I have to rely on my memory.

Thanks so much! Looking forward to more updates on this awesome writing app!

Infrequent Updates, but that’s ok

This robust text editor uses *.rtf and *.txt formats. It supports Markdown. Translation, everything you write is functionally future proof. You will always be able to find a text editor that supports Markdown.

The Good: simple interface, easy to organize, future proof, Markdown means you can move the files to anything. *.txt means no one will ever create a word processor/text editor that can’t read your files and output them ready to continue writing. Text files are also small, so storage isn’t a problem, even on the 400pg document I’m currently writing. I use Highland2 on my laptop, and it loves the text output from Just Write. Highland2 also makes the multiple files I tend to write large documents in easy to assemble.

The Bad: it’s got a crashing problem. I suspect it originates from the infrequent updates. Fortunately, it autosaves frequently, and so I rarely lose more than a sentence or two. It can be difficult to navigate long documents, so I tend to break my writing up into shorter chunks spread over multiple files. This is a problem with the hardware, navigating documents on a tablet/iPad is challenging.

Wish List: an update to address the crashing problem. It happens four or five times a day, sometimes more.
