5 Great Mac Apps For Writers
OmmWriter takes away all the distractions of many modern day text editors, with a simple and clutter free environment it allows writers to concentrate on their writing, avoiding those pesky distractions. OmmWriter has a unique combination of audio and visual components which aim to enhance your creativity. With the new version, you are able to create custom backgrounds and define your writing area.
Scrivener is a powerful content-generation tool for writers designed for composing and structuring long and difficult documents. While it gives you complete control of the formatting, its focus is on getting you to the end of that awkward first draft. With a lot more features than OmmWriter, Scrivener helps you to get that first draft out in good time, with loads of nifty features to help you do so, such as a virtual cork board, notes, comments, snapshots and exporting as an audio file!
Write without distractions. WriteRoom is a full screen writing environment. Unlike the cluttered word processors you're used to, WriteRoom lets you focus on writing, much like that of OmmWriter we saw earlier.
We couldn't do this top 5 without including Apple's Pages. Although there are some haters out there, it really does have all the basic tools you need to get started with word processing. It is more focused towards the design and layout of a page than concentrating on the actual words, although it does include all the features you would expect, with a great attention to detail on the fonts.
With a compromise between the extremely simplistic writing applications, and some of the more feature packed ones, Byword contains a great user interface, beautiful text, and still has the formatting options to back it up. And as of this moment, its 50% off, so get it whilst its on offer!
