Do you ever feel the need to write down your words quickly, simply and without any needless distractions?

iA Writer is a word processor that has been stripped down to the very basics, with a user interface and overall look that is much simpler than Apple’s own Notes application that comes preinstalled on iOS devices.

iA Writer has been designed with the writer and writing in mind, so the existing software keyboard has been supplemented with additional functions that enrich the writing process, such as quick jumps to beginning and ends of words.

Another useful feature is focus mode, which highlights the text you are currently writing and fades the other sentences into the background to allow you to keep your mind concentrated on what is being written.

Dropbox users will also benefit from full integration, ensuring that their written words are synched online wherever they might be writing.

Pros: Simple design and expanded keyboard allows for a greater level of text input.

Cons: Someone already used to the existing software keyboard may need to adjust their typing habits to get the most of the app.

Verdict: Whether you want to write down simple notes or a full novel, iA Writer will help you focus on your writing task at hand
