  • Bad Dropbox integration

    By ChuckSpark
    Creating a file on Dropbox requires lots of work. Integration used to be good but they ruined it. If your connectivity is spotty the app will make you crazy. Why using that ugly modal to browse Dropbox ?
  • Needs dark mode for iPad and iPhone

    By notsoironichipster
    I was embarrassing wrong. Dark mode exist. Thank you guys. iA Writer was and still is the top three used apps according to my iOS monitor stats.
  • Good but...

    By 0hd
    I used is Writer first in Android and I loved how the app subtle integrated with Google Drive and now in IOS, I feel the same. But there's no integration with Drive in IOS. Also, I can not add my texts as drafts to Medium even though I got the integration token. Hope the team can fix it soon. It's a beautiful app but we need to focus on writing, of course, and integration to develop our writing in blogs. Thanks.
  • Connection to Wordpress

    Please add the option of posting to WordPress sites without the need of the jetpack. Until then only stars. Update: Robust editor, but lack direct integration with WordPress. Having to go through the jet pack is discouraging. A lot of work to post an article. There is no option for other platforms. Terrible for professional production. I had given stars. I m down to one until I solve this annoying problem.
  • Best general writing app for iPhone

    By Nh7k
    This has been the best app for my iPhone when it comes to writing. Be it journals, quick notes, or logging of events. The simplicity of just writing text let’s me make sure my ideas get out down unimpeded. As an added bonus, the app is well polished and clean. Exactly what you’d want for such a simple yet critics task.
  • The best

    By sister helena
    This is just the best writing app. The lead developer responds to concerns incredibly fast and his team pushes out updates regularly, both of which are hallmarks of a first-class product. I’ve used this app and two of its main peers for years and years. Simplicity and focus are what sets it apart from those rival writing apps. Over the time I’ve used it, this app has grown in meaningful ways. It’s not too much, not too little, but just right. I hope it stays this way. Try it. You won’t regret it.
  • HB214 - Very Satisfied Long time user 👍👍

    This is still one of my top 3 favored and used apps! Very capable, flexible and usable.
  • Thought I found a true cross platform note app

    By SouthPoleCat
    The iA writer itself is great. And yes, it does work on Android, Windows etc. BUT, this review is for iPad version, which is just bad in how it handles Locations. On Android I log in with my Gmail account and use GDrive. Here it is only iCloud that is most cumbersome and least user friendly cloud of all. It is fine to still have it, but, please, give us the ability to add other locations and truly sync the content accross the platforms.
  • 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.
