Having to re-type the same format for your daily TPS reports can become cumbersome. Instead of having to save the templates in email or elsewhere you can just have the format automatically created with the new file. This can save you time instead of having to type up the same format every time. Particularly, when there are new cover sheets to use.

wwriteLite allows you to take notes, create blog posts, and do type up anything else that you see fit. The plain-text format allows for more flexibility than working within an HTML environment. One of the perks of wwrite is that you have the ability to create and customize templates.

The app supports Slide Over, Split View, and all iPhone and iPad Sizes. There is keyboard support, including keyboard shortcuts. Just hold down the Command Key to find out all of the shortcuts.

The files that you create can be emailed individual, or an archive can be created; which can subsequently be emailed. You can also retrieve any archives through iTunes. If you're using an iPad, you can also import and export files using drag and drop to bring files in and out.

If you get stuck, or see a problem, just tap on Tools -> Support and either email or send a tweet and we can work through the problem.

What’s New

Version 8.3.0

New Features
- Improved large file support, files now load text/rtf when needed.
- Moved App Parameters, Writing Prompts, and One Word Prompts to use iCloud, so this should be faster for some users.
- Added Setting to allow you to choose how often to refresh ads. Options are between 1 and 5 minutes.
- You can now see the original prompt for One Word Prompts or Writing Prompt files in the ‘File Info’ screen, in case you deleted the original prompt.
- File and Template Syncing is now available. This must be enabled in Settings in order to function. This must be done on each of your devices. This may result in possible duplicate files and templates if they are on both devices.
- Significantly improved offline functionality, which is needed even more with syncing being possible
- Search previous One Word and Writing Prompts, and even save them in case you missed them before.

Saved Prompts
- You can now save either Writing or One Word prompts to look at later by tapping the “Star” icon next to the prompt.
- If you want, you can also enable Saved Prompts syncing in Settings, so if you get a new device all of your saved prompts will be synchronized.

Big Changes
- The file names used to actually store your file, meta content, and rtf contents will be upgraded to use a naming format. The displayed file names and contents will not be changed.
- Template file names used to store the template information will be upgraded to use the new file naming format. The displayed name and actual contents of your templates will not be changed.

- Icons that you have not purchased will appear a bit dimmer in the “App Icons” screen.
- Fixed the “One Word Prompts” and “Writing Prompts” to provide a more native display on each device.
- Fixed the background and font button placement on iPad mini

Bug Fixes
- Fixed issue where files would not be imported properly (it was completely broken)
- Fixed an issue where the “Distraction” Mode toggle could not be enabled on the iPad mini.
- Fixed issue where One Word Prompt wouldn’t have a header on the iPad.
- Fixed an issue where archiving RTF files would cause the app to crash
- Fixed an issue where archiving “Files and Metadata” would not actually produce any files.

A sham or a goof

No developers web site for information. No directions and no ability to type anything. Either I'm doing something wrong or this app is some sort of comic rue.

Good for typing, but don't expect an accurate word count

I attempted to use the word count tool for this app and only once, out of five separate entries, was it correct. It appears to not count words that were duplicated in your document, and it counts some punctuation as a word.. I need the accuracy so this app is getting deleted, but if you are only looking for something to type, like the windows program notepad, then this is for you.
