  • A long term disappointment

    By bilRBE
    I was an early adopter, but never developed a positive feeling/experience with this software. I bought into multi-platform versions in the hope that it would meet it’s promise for me. It hasn’t! I had expected to work with a simple word processor that I could export to other SW with some decent basic formatting - didn’t happen. Maybe I’m missing something, but at this point I feel obligated to provide my experience to others. Apps are not a big investment, but this is one I feel ‘money back’ would be a fair policy!
  • Supporting RTL Languages like Arabic

    By ApOcAl99
    I really appreciate for your great app but how come iOS version doesn’t support RTL languages?! because Android one does. Do you have any plan to add that? My purchase is useless now.
  • Spell check triggers for contractions

    By DannyDev
    The red spell check squiggly will hover over "does" in "doesn't", for example, until I tap on it. Seriously?
  • beyond my needs

    By Normskul
    I have been using the older version and had decided to pop $5 for the upgrade. It seemed to work well enough at first. Then I tried to transfer files from my older version it did not work. No big deal, so I wrote a small piece of nonsense and tried to transfer it to Pages. I could find no way to do this. I do not have Microsoft Word as that costs and Pages sufficiently polishes my prose. I should have kept it simple. I have since sent this app to the clouds. I would appreciate it if I could get my five dollars back. This all happened on my iPad Pro. Pages is on this machine too. I can understand you wanting to think big, but my needs are small. I have gotten rid of file savers as they have gotten so complicated I could not find where what it is I had sent landed. Look out Dropbox.
  • perfect

  • The best

    By Andy Koval
    This is the best app for working with texts, hands down. Minimalist and light, it lets you focus on the text you’re working with.
  • Simply perfect

    By Hunter Holder
    “Minimal markdown editors” are all over the place, and at this point are markedly unspecial. iA Writer, however, is noteworthy because of the perfect execution of the UI. It’s distraction-free, of course, but it’s also extremely well-organized and easy to use as an actual writing tool. You can do things like write all of the chapters of a book in separate files, then link them together within one master file with a TOC, and reuse any of those sections wherever you need. You can enter Focus Mode, which can fade out everything outside of the current line or current paragraph. You can add tags in case folders just aren’t good enough. You can customize those shortcuts on top of your keyboard for quick access to the stuff you use most often. You can highlight nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and conjunctions to easily see if you’re using too much of something. You can do automation with webhooks, like putting your new contacts into a table. There are tons of cool features, and it’s still easy and quick to use. These guys definitely care about good design, and always think of ways to make things better, which makes me really enthused every time this app gets an update. Awesome job!

  • iA Writer Has Grown Into One of the Best Markdown Writers

    By brutek
    When I first purchased iA Writer a few years ago, it was good, but not great. It has grown into one of the best text editors on iOS and it handles Markdown extremely well. I hope this review encourages more purchases because I dislike a subscription model and I want to see more improvements for tables. Please also add more CSS stylized outputs! I’ve also purchased the macOS version to help keep the team providing great support.
