My favorite work processor. Ever. - I've been using Pages on my Mac, iPhone and iPad for a long time. I didn't realize how easily I get distracted using typical word processors. iA Writer is amazing. I can stay easily focused, and when I'm done I just copy everything over into a Pages document, make any changes that I need to make it work well as a printed document and print. iA Writer focuses on the writing, and it does a very good job of it. It's not the features that it has so much as the features that it does have, that make this app so amazing.
Pretty lousy - I tried to love this app, but it just doesn't do the job. It has a few problems that never seem to get fixed. First, no night mode. How is a writing application in 2014 STILL without such a basic feature? I don't care what the developer's "philosophy" is. Black text on a stark white background is blinding at night, and not having the option to invert text without resorting to using OS X's accessibilty "feature" is ridiculous. Two, the program seems to pick and choose which part of Markdown it supports. It doesn't make sense. Three, there’s no way to increase the text size in the editor. This is an inredibly arrogant decision by the developer, telling *me* what’s best for my eyes. Who does that? With other great options out there, it's hard to recommend this app. Try Byword or Ulyssess III instead.
