uFocus is a distraction-free writing application that allows you to open plain text files and keep them organized inside libraries. The main goal is to allow everyone to express their creativity in the most simple, beautiful way.

What is uFocus capable of?

• Unobtrusive interface: the title bar only appears when moving the mouse to the top of the window
• Swipe with two fingers to the right to show the sidebar. Here you can link your favorite libraries and quickly access your documents
• Text statistics such as character and word can be shown by clicking on the Info button in the title bar
• Markdown: easily add headings, quotes, ordered and unordered lists, italics and bold (keyboard shortcuts available). You can then export your documents to HTML
• Sentence highlighting: you can stay even more focused by fading out all the text but the current sentence
• Typewriter scrolling: automatically scrolls the text when you get on a new line
• NoWayBack mode: disable deletions and replacements if your greatest temptation is always to edit your text instead of writing
• Sound mode: experience the ultimate feeling of a typewriter
• Fullscreen: focus on your words and hide everything else that is on screen
• iCloud, autosaving and Versions are also supported
• Choose between three different editor widths, four font sizes and a light and a dark theme
• Print either a single file or a whole directory

If you have any request or improvement you would like to see in the next version of uFocus, feel free to contact me on the uFocus website:


NOTE: only latin character sets are guaranteed to work at the moment.

Version 3.2.3
Review by Sophie Hsu

Looking forward to a better Chinese support - A really smart and light writing tool! But it is a pity that it can’t right hightlight current sentence when I am writing Chinese. Because the program can’t detect Chinese punctuation which mark the end of a sentence(such as 。!?…… and so on). Looking forward to a better Chinese support. Thanks!

Version 3.2.3
Review by CamCube

Hope it can detect Chinese encoding. - Hi there, This is a very great app. It's light, fast, simple. Now I'm using it everyday now. However, there is a little annoying thing. When I start type in any Chinese, there will be a little pop up “The document could not be autosaved, The specified text encodeing isn’t applicable.” So distracting. Could you improve the Chinese encoding dectect? Big Thanks.
