  • Amazingly simple and beautiful app

    By Grapemile
    If you’re all about minimalism look no further. This one’s just what you need. Worth every penny.
  • The best way to write on the iPad

    By Redlightbulb
    I have tried a lot of notes apps. I take them very seriously. Other apps may have fancier graphics or nifty organization systems, but nothing is as nice for writing markdown on the iPad.
  • I’m not much of a writer, but I know what I like

    By Cyberpunk Librarian
    I’ve tried various different apps, but this is the one that fits me the best. I love the typewriter mode so everything I’m writing and working on *right now* is in the middle of the screen. No futzing around looking for my cursor or pushing words up from the bottom of the screen. When I want to write, I just need to keep moving a cursor to the right and keep things flowing without thinking about the app, the environment, how many things it supports, and all that. If you’re looking to put text on a screen using an iPad, this is your app.
  • This time, I really started writing

    By Johnnydayday
    Great app, please keep it clean and always like this!
  • Loving the new features and functionality

    By p13t3rm
    I’ve used iA Writer on and off for the last 4 years in it’s various incarnations. This latest version of their markdown editor is my favorite so far. A beautiful dark theme, tight iCloud Drive integration, great folder structure with tagging and smart folders for better organization, it’s all here and it’s better than ever. The lack of a subscription model that many text editors have decided to go with nowadays is icing on the cake. Keep up the excellent work guys/gals, you’ve finally given me a reason to switch from Apple Notes. 👍
  • Wonderful

    By Anthony Maitz
    I’ve used it daily for years.
  • Opaque user interface

    By racingjay
    Lost several paid for reports stored in cloud but unable to reopen or view because they were saved as PDFs. I eventually deleted everything including this apparently useless at least to me app! Don’t waste your time or your money!
  • Files have gone missing.

    By Carl in Oakland
    I spent almost an hour working some documents using the latest version of iA Writer. The documents showed up in the recently edited section but when trying to reopen them the app froze. I quit and went back in and now they’re gone. If I used the parts of my vocabulary that truly describe how I feel about this, this review would be censored and not published.
  • Bad font

    By Boyo711
    A) Minus 1 star for only offering one bad font (or at best very unusual and opinionatted font). B) Minus 2 stars for not offering any evaluation mode where the customer could realize point (A).
  • Inviting Interface

    By cahuntington
    For the act of writing, there is no app I like more than iA Writer. The choice of font, the wide margins, the *white* space—all speak to me, indeed *sing* to me, welcoming me in to a space that is comfortable and warm and energizing. Is it heaven on earth in an app? No, not quite, but the developers have consistently rejected any temptations to bloat the app. Are there bugs? Sure, from time to time—but not often and not major. Does the app ever launch slowly? Not that I can recall. When I press the app icon to call up iA Writer, within two seconds, I have a document at my fingertips, and all I need to do is begin typing. The feeling is amazing. You really should try it.
