***New users: Thanks for choosing the new OmmWriter Gaia, and welcome to the family!***

A wise man once said: “We are all at the mercy of our wild monkey minds. Incessantly swinging from branch to branch”. With multiple windows and applications all vying for our attention, we have sadly adapted our working habits to that of the computer and not the other way around.

OmmWriter is a humble attempt to recapture what technology has snatched away from us today: our capacity to concentrate.

OmmWriter is a tool that makes writing a pleasure again, allowing users to be alone with their thoughts; to concentrate and to write without distractions. More than a word processor, OmmWriter is a place to get inspired.

The secret to OmmWriter lies in its simplicity and apparent lack of functionality. OmmWriter Gaia pays special attention to audio and visual effects that contribute to the overall writing experience. We have spent a considerable amount of research time and effort in the audio-visual experience to promote and enhance creativity. OmmWriter is the fruit of this investigation with new dynamic backgrounds employing Chroma therapy techniques as well as new sound effects. This version, Gaia, is a reflection of its new soothing sound environments and backgrounds inspired by Earth’s natural landscapes. In particular, the nocturnal background, which relaxes your vision (and probably your mood).

If you are a scriptwriter, blogger, journalist, copywriter, poet or just someone who enjoys writing, welcome back to concentrating.

What others are saying:

“You either love it or you hate it. Some Cult readers loved it so much they voted it as one of the best new applications of last year” – Cult of Mac

“Part word processor, part work of art, OmmWriter is a must for people who journal, blog, or do any kind of writing where creativity and idea-generation is key. Give it a try” – TUAW

“The modern computer experience is amazing for distracting you from work… OmmWriter Dana doesn’t lock you in a dark room until you force the words out, but rather creates a space in your head that allows you to focus on what you want to say” – Appletell

“When I really want to go into a writing hole, I use OmmWriter” – Life hacker

“OmmWriter is my favourite, because it’s so serene and there’s not much to do but write” – Zen Habits

“Where serenity meets school work” – Forbes

Version 1.3

My fav app - This app is great, but WHY would you get rid of all the old good ambient sounds? They replaced them with annoying tracks, they should keep all the music.

Version 1.3
Review by Film Student

A great idea gone wrong. Don't buy version 1.3. - When I first found Ommwriter Dana II, I thought I had found the perfect writing software. I am really shocked at how bad this new version is. I wished I had NOT upgraded. There is tons of static on the music tracks that distract you from your writing. Plus the new music suddenly jumps into melodies that are distracting and draw attention to themselves in uncreative ways. Prior to upgrade the music was tonal and didn't interfere with creativity. Now it does to a terrible degree. I had to shut it off. I ended up going back to MS Word. I was totally wowed by this program, but this new upgrade is a step backward and over a cliff -- yes, it's that bad. I cannot recommend this software to anyone in it's current state. Indeed, it is a waste of your money. Such a shame, it was a brilliant idea. Now, it's junk.

Version 1.50
Review by Moses Jay

Would be incredible - Honestly this is an incredible writing environment, but the saving functionality doesn’t work at all. Have reinstalled, rebooted, nothing works. If you can’t save, it’s really a $7 screensaver. If they fix this, then it’s an easy 5 stars.

Version 1.50
Review by Chuck3232

Will not save documents - Just downloaded the latest update that came out today. Ommwrite will no longer save documents. I wouldn’t use this app until the latest bug is fixed. I’m using the latest version Mac OS, so it might be that Ommwrite is just not compatible with the latest version of Mac OS.
