"After an hour playing with it, I bought the Pro for 5 bucks a month. I wrote one short 1000-word story and love it. I'm IN." —Dave

Distraction-free focus

Writer lets you focus on what's important: your words. Writer eliminates distractions so that you can concentrate, be more productive, and get your writing done. Its no-nonsense, minimal interface gets out of your way. But don't let that fool you... Writer packs a ton of powerful features into its sleek design.

Write as much as you like

Do you write a lot? Not a problem. Writer lets you save an unlimited number of documents of any length. All of your writing is saved online so that it's available no matter where you are or what computer you use. You never have to worry about running out of storage space.

Safe and secure automatic backups

We know how important your writing is. Multiple revisions of every document are saved automatically as you write so you can go back to your document as it existed a day, a week, or years ago. And all of your writing is transmitted securely to our servers and backed up nightly. Never worry about losing your novel just because you lost your computer.

Plays well with others

Writer has built-in exporters for Google Drive, Evernote, Dropbox, WordPress, and more. You can also automatically convert directly to PDF, HTML, and even ePub ebook formats. Writer has you covered no matter how you want to share or distribute your documents. Your writing belongs to you and we try to enable as many ways as possible for you to use it.

Vintage typewriter sounds and customization

Take your pick from electric or mechanical typewriter sound effects to complement your writing. Get into the flow and zen out. Or turn off the sounds entirely. Choose paper and text colors, fonts, sounds, and line spacing. You can make Writer your own by customizing it so that it looks and feels exactly the way you want.

Writing goals and statistics

Writing goals can be set per document or per session. And you can set a word or character count goal or a timer. Writing goals keep you focused, on track, and make sure you can hit your daily word count. Writer also keeps track of your writing history and can chart how many words you've written over time, when you're most productive, and keep track of streaks.

"Elegant, simple and a dream when compared to the likes of Word. This has improved my productivity massively. Full screen feature is especially dreamy." —Simon
