Textwell is a multipurpose textbox which can be used for any writing tasks such as jotting, messaging, blogging, searching, posting, and so on.

For the simplicity, Textwell doesn't have features for styling text or managing multiple notes, but it is always ready to start writing instead, and the bunch of customizable actions can process your text in unlimited ways. Actions can be modified and created by yourself with JavaScript.

Textwell is like a single sheet of paper, but it automatically saves current content by appropriate timing as history, so that you can search and take it back some time later.

Also, current content is automatically synced with other devices via iCloud. Besides, you can snapshot current content anytime, and they are stored and shared via iCloud.

Textwell allows you to
- Simply write and read on a plain text field without any functional complexity or visual clutter.
- Route your text to other apps or services such as Email, Message, Google, Twitter, Maps, Calendar, Reminders, and more, by choosing one from the action list. Actions are customizable with JavaScript.
- Modify your text by using actions such as search/replacing words, inserting specific characters, reordering paragraphs/lines, time-stamping, location-stamping, changing cases, adding bullets, URL-encoding/decoding, escaping/unescaping HTML, making shorten URLs, and so on.
- Preview HTML/markdown, and let your text be spoken, by also using actions.
- Search and restore old text in the history list.
- Share current text with other devices automatically via iCloud.
- Snapshot current content as a special history item which is called "Snap," and they will be shared via iCloud.
- See and switch counters for characters, words, and lines by tapping the titlebar.
- Handoff to share content with other iOS devices, Macs, and an Apple Watch.
- Provides the Today widget "Textwell" and the app extension "Add to Textwell."
- Provides "Textwell" iMessage app.
- In the Settings app, change themes, font sizes, line spacing, bar layout, and some behaviors.

Bad on Apple Watch

Nothing like the pictures. All you can do on the Apple Watch ⌚️ is read notes you added on the iPhone.

I just need an app on the Apple Watch that will let me write on the Apple Watch

And like a bookmark for writing or even just the ability to merge two notes easily instead of continuing one

I have a disorder that affects my writing ability and the scribble thing helps but I don’t like juggling things with my phone

This app is amazing! It's an amazing app in terms of its use and what he can do, and it's also amazing to me that more people aren't reviewing it and/or using it.

It is essentially an endless blank slate in which you can edit text, hereto all platforms, search on many platforms, and do all kinds of shortcuts that you wouldn't believe until you start using it. It's a great way to write everything. I write all of my texts, emails, pretty much everything from this app, and share it directly from this. You don't have to hold down to select copy and paste, because it had "actions" (commands or presets or however you want to think of them), that allow you to do it without having to use touch other than to choose the command. It really does streamline the workflow for just about everything.

You can make a phone call from this app, as well as just about anything you can do with text. It is the only single app that I keep in my dock. Everything else is in folders.

If you don't have this, trust me, you need it. It will change your life on an iOS device.
