Writer Pro, the New and Improved Writing App From the Makers of iA Writer, is Upon Us

Posted by on December 19th, 2013
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

iA Writer is considered by many to be one of the (if not the) best iOS text editors on the market. Or at least it was, until iA Labs went and released the next best thing: Writer Pro.

Writer Pro is an all-new iOS writing suite. “Syntax Control” will scan your text (currently limited to English on iOS) and automatically highlight nouns, prepositions, verbs, and more for easy editing. It also offers an interesting and organic workflow system that lets users begin by typing out notes, move on to editing in order to flesh everything out, then share work instantly across all of their devices (iPhone, iPad, and Mac). Sound cool? Well you can grab Writer Pro off the App Store right now for $19.99.

Our Favorite: Mobile Writing App

The App Store is growing at an incredible rate. For every single possible type of app, there’s a near overwhelming amount of choice out there. That’s particularly noticeable for the writing app world. There’s enough variety out there to ensure that users can use a different writing app every day of the week for the next five years, probably. We’ve taken the time to pick out some of our favorites from the category, as we round them up and figure out just what our overall pick of the bunch is.

Immediately tough to narrow things down to only half a dozen, we’ve singled out Byword, Wisdom Writer, iA Writer, Pages, Daedalus Touch and Textilus for a further look.

 

Byword

 

byword1byword2

 

Byword is a great all-rounder writing app. Using Markdown formatting, it’s simple to use and ideal for a variety of uses. It’s possible to search within documents, track word and character counts, check spelling and grammar, as well as export to PDF or HTML. For a premium price of $4.99 it’s possible to publish directly to WordPress, Tumblr, and Blogger, amongst others. However, that does make Byword a quite expensive solution, weighing in at $9.99 for the full complement of options, plus the exporting file facility is still quite limited.

 

Wisdom Writer

 

wisdom1wisdom2

 

Wisdom Writer aims to be an intuitive writing app. While it doesn’t always hit the spot, with a few interface niggles, it’s a great way of writing in an uncluttered environment. It’s possible to add lists, images, and tables to one’s writing, as well as text. A selection of predefined templates further ensure that the app is great for more professional writing as well as quickly scribbling down some notes. It’s a pity then that the app can’t open or import RTF, Docx, or Pages files despite extensive exporting features.

 

iA Writer

 

iawriter1iawriter2

 

A minimalist delight, iA Writer dispenses with all the fanciness of many other writing apps, focusing on the writing experience alone. There are no formatting options to be seen, no file extensions to deal with, nothing more than just pure writing. While some users might find this limiting, it’s tough not to be bewitched by its simple and effective syncing options covering Dropbox, iCloud, and the ability to switch between Apple devices running the app. A Focus mode and keyboard extensions further simplify the core writing process.

 

Pages

 

pages1pages2

 

Notably different from the previous entry, Apple’s very own Pages is a great app for creating professional documents while on the move and is nearly as simple to use as the Mac version. 16 templates and styles are available for those wanting to create letters, flyers, cards, posters, and more while on the move. iCloud support and the ability to drag documents from one’s PC or Mac straight into the app are very useful. Lack of Dropbox support is a significant omission, though, for those who like to keep their documents safe in one place.

 

Daedalus Touch

 

daedalus1daedalus2

 

Capturing the minimalist feeling once more, Daedalus Touch does things a little differently. The focus is on the content, but there’s no sign of a folder or file list. Instead, the app uses gestures to flick through paper stacks of files and notes. It’s a technique that’s unlike anything else here. Daedalus Touch isn’t just about the looks though, including plenty of syncing support via Dropbox, iCloud, and others, as well as numerous ways to send a document to another app. Something that’s going to be essential for those who want to do anything more than just type.

 

Textilus

 

textilus1textilus2

 

Unlike the other apps featured, Textilus offers support for a very significant form of writing. It caters for those who use Scrivener to form novels and particularly significant documents. Besides that, it’s possible to export to numerous different document types such as PDF, RTF, TXT, PNG, Markdown, and HTML. Images, charts, and even one’s own signature can be easily added through the app, and syncing support is quite varied. It does suffer from some buggy moments though, which are never welcome. Plus its interface could be clearer, especially where Dropbox support is concerned.

 

So what’s our favorite writing app?

 

Much like anything on the App Store, this selection is suitably varied. Much of it comes down to individual needs. For instance, Daedalus Touch is undoubtedly the finest app for those seeking an absolutely minimalist experience, however it lacks some very useful features. iA Writer maintains the minimalist quality while still offering features such as Focus mode to keep one’s interest. A file list system proves much simpler to navigate than Daedalus Touch’s gesture driven methods.

Textilus might offer a huge wealth of options, particularly the ability to add one’s own signature, but it suffers from some instability issues, plus it’s only available for the iPad. In comparison, Pages enjoys the reassurance that comes from being so similar to a desktop app that will have been used by many before, but it is more expensive than most other apps here. Wisdom Writer offers a fine mix of a simple writing environment alongside great features, but its slightly limited in what it can open and its interface can be problematic.

Each of the contenders here are brilliant at certain roles, depending on how the user writes. Which is why our favorite might not be the best at everything, or the highest rated, but is a great all-rounder. That app is Byword.

 

Screenshots-iPad2

 

Byword manages to straddle that thin line between not being so minimal that it lacks features, and not being so complex that it distracts users. It ticks all the major boxes; proving simple to sync between other Apple devices, offering offline access, a handy search tool, and comprehensive word and character counters. While it might be expensive to purchase publishing support, it gives users the flexibility to buy the tools that they want and not be cluttered by anything else. Even better, there’s no need to spend ages consulting tutorials as it’s immensely simple to get to grips with.

 

Being asked to sum up the past five years of the App Store, on a personal level, is tough. Partly, because I have the memory of a goldfish, but also because so much has happened in those few years. How do you highlight what’s so great about a device and service that you can’t imagine being without? My iPhone and the App Store, by proxy, has been immensely important to me in this time. It’s given me so much information, enjoyment and even been a great outlet in times of need. Here’s a feeble attempt at trying to sum up how vital it’s all been for me.

Memories

Launch day: Despite the goldfish analogy, I do remember when the App Store first launched. I’d had an iPhone for a couple of months previously and had dabbled in jailbreaking, but didn’t feel too comfortable with it. The day the App Store started was genuinely exciting stuff. It’s hard to believe, for those newer to the Store, but it was possible to browse from start to finish, thanks to there being a mere 500 apps available. I did that, regularly, until it got to a point where there were just too many titles to look at. Like with any launch day event, these apps didn’t show off everything the technology could do, but they did offer a glimpse of a thrilling future.

FlightControlHD-ss3

Flight Control: Excluding a dabble with the no longer with us, Bejeweled 2, Flight Control was my first great iOS love. It showed me how great the touch controls of the iPhone could be, and how quickly one could gain satisfaction from a phone game. My past experiences with mobile gaming had been fun, but lacking that certain something that made me think it could rival handheld consoles. Flight Control changed that, for me, and I loved spending ages battling to improve my high score. Not that I was any good at it, though!

Exploration: I like apps that enhance my life, and I’ve used many in the past. Star Chart sticks in my mind, however, thanks to it enabling me to learn more about an area. While at the summit of an ancient ridge, Cefn Bryn, I could load up Star Chart and work out exactly what stars were above me and where. It was pretty magical.

Highlights

A career path: It’s a pretty significant one, but if it wasn’t for the App Store, I wouldn’t be writing this. In fact, I’m not entirely sure what I’d be doing, given throughout my freelance career thus far, the App Store and iOS have played a very big role. It’s changed my life for the better. It’s been nearly three years since I wrote my first review for 148apps, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter, and I’m immensely grateful for how far I, and the site, have come.

The indie uprising: I always passively appreciated the efforts of indie developers, before the advent of the App Store, but my love for them has definitely grown. Perhaps more excitingly, I feel enabled to give it a go myself at some point. While I haven’t yet found the time spare to really pursue it, Xcode, Stencyl and Gamesalad are waiting for me, reminding me that the era of the bedroom coder has returned. That’s got to be a good thing for creativity, right?

Beloved Apps and Missed Titles

KOTOR_5

Favorites: I’ve struggled to narrow the list down. Really struggled. The memories of one Saturday morning avidly playing Game Dev Story in bed, before realising it’s practically lunchtime are particularly strong. Much the same as my hundreds of hours spent with Fairway Solitaire are fond, if tarnished by the time it inexplicably lost all my data and progress. Or how about the time I demonstrated the power of the iPad to my mother with the double whammy of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and XCOM: Enemy Unknown? The former being one of my favorite games of all time.

Out of them all, though, a select bunch are used nearly every day. I take photos each day to track my life and have some fond memories to look back on, so Instagram is a must have for me. I like to back up such things, as well as my social networking sharing, so Momento is always at the forefront of my recently used apps. As a writer, iA Writer completes the selection, thanks to its cloud syncing ensuring I can always write up a quick idea, no matter where I am. New Star Soccer remains the key game that I regularly find myself returning to, living my fantasy as a world class soccer player.

Apps I miss: There are a couple of apps I miss, though. Puzzle Quest being one such title, given my love of the Match-3 genre and the fact I’ve played it to death on all other formats. Similarly, I adored Big Blue Bubble’s use of the Fighting Fantasy license, although at least Tin Man Games is doing a brilliant job of taking over that mantle.

It’s been a fun five years, and given how far the App Store has come in that time, I’m excited to see what the next five years will bring. It’s looking like a pretty rosy future to me!

Favorite Four: Writing Apps

Feeling creative and want to write an epic on your iPhone or iPad? We’ve got you covered with our favorite four writing apps. I’ve rounded up some of the best of the bunch, each helping users write all kinds of different texts, from the next bestseller to a formal letter. There’s even a great app for film scripting.

iA Writer
My personal favorite (I’m using the Mac version to write this article), ia Writer is ideal for the minimalist writer. Focused entirely on offering a simple and clear screen to enter text, it’s easy to get wrapped up into the words rather than distracted by status bars. That’s not to say it’s a basic app, though, with iCloud support and Dropbox integration ensuring users can get back to writing, no matter where they are.

Pages
A great all-rounder, Pages is a fine word processing tool. It’s a little expensive but it offers plenty of functionality with a choice of 16 different and relevant templates, for projects such as simple letters to posters or reports. iCloud support is here, along with the ability to edit different document types including all the popular formats. There’s even basic functionality for creating pie charts and other diagrams. It’s suitably varied and full of features.

Daedalus Touch
Returning to the minimalist trend, Daedalus Touch is ideal for those who want even more freedom for their words. No folders or file lists are needed here. Instead, users are presented with a virtual paper stack of sheets to navigate through with some very intuitive controls. For those looking to do more free writing and simply throw themselves into the words, Daedalus Touch is quite the delight. Plus, there’s syncing functionality with Mac app, Ulysses III.

Contour
It’s quite a specific tool but Contour will prove to be ideal for those who always reckoned they had a great movie idea but didn’t know where to start. It’s a story development system that makes it easy to start small and grow big, with a fill-in-the-blanks style approach. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never had script writing experience, Contour will fix all that. Created by an Emmy Award-nominated writer, it’s got the pedigree to be worth taking note of, too.

Jen’s Favorite Things Of 2012

Is it really nearly 2013? How did that happen? And why did 2012 go so fast? I have no answer, but I can answer what I enjoyed so much about 2012. It wasn’t the greatest of years for me in many respects, but it was a fantastic year for the technology fan part of me.

Fairway Solitaire


Tell me at the start of the year that my main gaming addiction this year would be a card game and I’d have laughed. A lot. I’ve always quite enjoyed solitaire games but usually when I have nothing better to do. Fairway Solitaire has established its place in my daily routine ever since I reviewed it at the start of the year. No mean feat given the wealth of games I’ve played across the year. Its constant trickle of new content each day is all too tempting and I’ve found it to be very relaxing. Shame that some elements of the game require quite a lot of in-app purchases.

iPhone 5


I’ve never owned an iPhone since launch before, having always picked them up much later down the line. Thanks to things working out well, I picked up an iPhone 5 two days after its initial launch. I’m so glad I did. Out of all the technology in my house, it’s the most used and not just for work reasons. It might not be the most revolutionary of hardware updates, but the extra screen space and processor power is very handy. Owning the 32gb variety (for the first time) is a particular revelation. Finally, I don’t have to swap out apps and games all the time.

Summer of Sport


As a soccer and athletics fan, this summer was a memorable one. Euro 2012 kept me happy, if predictably disappointed, as an England supporter. The London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, made me proud of my country and ecstatic to watch so much fantastic sport. It also marked the first Olympics when iOS devices played an important part in coverage, which was shown through the plethora of apps available.

The Walking Dead


The most emotional game I’ve played in recent years. Bar none. It’s perhaps a little weak on gaming elements and there are a few plotholes by the end, but it doesn’t stop The Walking Dead being a tour de force of emotion. I have no children but I can only imagine the powerful story of a girl desperate to find her parents amongst a zombie invasion, being all the more potent for those who do.

Zombies, Run!


More zombies! Not quite in the same way, though. Zombies, Run! is my exercise companion. I jog, rather than run. A distinct lack of stamina and a continuing foot problem means things are a little slower for me. The key thing is, though, Zombies, Run! motivates me to keep trying. Telling a story linked into exercise is an inspired move and one that genuinely encouraged me to regularly jog. No matter how slow the progress might have been.

iA Writer


Yes, I know iA Writer isn’t an app that came out in 2012. It has had regular updates but that isn’t why it’s in my list, either. It’s here because 2012 marked the year that I bought my first Mac. A MacBook Pro, to be exact. Since then, there have been many apps that have made my life much easier but none more so than the Mac version of iA Writer. I’m using it right now to write this. Even better, if I have to go away from my laptop for whatever reason, I can carry on where I left this on my iPhone or iPad. That flexibility has made a massive difference to my year.

With the launch of the new iPad and its Retina Display, it may take some time for apps to catch up with the new high-resolution art requirements. Not for these ten apps, which have all been updated to support the new iPad’s high-resolution screen.

ABC Player: Want to catch up on ABC shows, but don’t want to lose out on resolution? Well, the ABC app now supports the new iPad Retina Display, which should make high-resolution video available from the app shine. It would even be possible, if ABC supports it, to stream 1080p, which is even higher resolution than what local ABC stations display at.

iA Writer – One of the finer writing apps available for iPad, this crisp and clear writing app loses none of its visual fidelity on the new iPad. As a bonus, it now is universal for the iPhone and iPod touch, and still supports iCloud for syncing between devices as well as the Mac version of the software.

BeoClock: Normal alarm clocks are just too low resolution to be any good any more. Wake up to a beautfiul alarm clock displayed by the iPad’s Retina Display, and possibly everything in the world will be more beautiful. Or everything will pale in comparison to this alarm clock’s beauty. Either way, it’ll probably look really nice.

Favorite Four: Text Editors

As a writer and iPad owner, I’m always looking for ways to use my iPad to write effectively. I do not need complex word processing software for my work – I just need simple plaintext editors that can sync with Dropbox, as I need a way to get my text on to an actual computer! WordPress is still a pain to use effectively on mobile, though an app like Blogsy helps out tremendously. Here are my favorite 4 solutions for cloud-based text editing on iOS.

iA Writer: This text editor’s greatest strength is its simplicity: pretty much the only setting that needs to be configured is Dropbox syncing, because it’s the only setting. Files can be saved anywhere on Dropbox, and there’s even iCloud support, which works with the Mac version of the software. The focus mode makes it much easier to just type without distraction, and the additional controls above the software keyboard make typing and editing text on the iPad screen far easier than any other app.

Released: 2010-09-21 :: Category: Productivity

Notesy: This app’s strengths are twofold: first, it features great automatic saving to Dropbox. While it only can sync up to one directory for saving files, it does have subdirectory support. The app also offers universal support, something that iA Writer lacks, which makes it easy for me to type up articles on my iPod touch when I’m not near my iPad, or in a situation where it’s easier to use than the iPad.

$4.99
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2010-09-08 :: Category: Productivity

Daedalus: What this app does differently is that it uses a stack-based interface, where text documents can be stored in logically-arranged groups of files. This works well for multitaskers who need to work on just specific sections of text at a time, like when composing lists, or for those who want some kind of visual arrangement of their work. Daedalus also has multiple display themes, customizable buttons above the keyboard, and multiple file export options.

Released: 2011-05-21 :: Category: Productivity

Nocs: This app is designed for those who use Markdown; while it does type up plaintext and support editing of txt files in Dropbox, what this app brings to the table is the ability to convert Markdown to HTML easily. For those unaware of Markdown, it’s essentially a variety of HTML formatting commands that are designed to be easier to type in than most HTML formatting is, and to look presentable when viewed as plaintext. Nocs can convert Markdown-formatted text into HTML files, suitable for pasting into WordPress or anywhere else needed. Did I mention it’s also free and universal?

iA Writer has made a breakthrough, allowing for writers to seamlessly work between their iPad and their Mac. Because no one’s truly a writer without being a Mac owner. But wait, I’m a Windows owner! I might not be for much longer, though, after hearing about this news: iA Writer now supports iCloud synchronization of text files between the Mac and iPad versions of the software, with text files updating on the fly between the two platforms. Text files can even be left open on one device and picked up on the othe, then can be continued on the other as the user desires. While the app continues to offer Dropbox syncing, it does not offer the live synchronization that this app does at the moment. iA Writer is now available on sale for $1.99 for iPad, and $8.99 for Mac. An iPhone/iPod touch version is planned, but not currently available, and so the complete writing synchronization dream goes deferred…

Scouting out your next photo is already more work than performing a root canal on a hyperactive child. Looking for vantage points, judging the sun, or moon, taking test shots, and so much more go into a good planning session. All this work often leads to lugging backbreaking equipment around just for a simple test shot. iOS has changed the face of test shooting and planning by margins that my back is very thankful for.

Notebooks be gone!
I have an over abundance of Moleskines full of notes, drawings, doodles, and ideas. These have traveled with me every place I run off to, including the local tea house. The introduction of the iPad has drastically changed my dependence on the tried and true Moleskine and pen. Now, apps like Penultimate allow me to draw out my ideas on my iPad. I can quickly sketch out ideas in a myriad of colors without the need of a big box of colored pencils. I can use Pages, iA Writer, or even Documents To Go to jot down all my notes, thoughts, and contemplations. My camera bag no longer rattles due to pens, pencils, or notebooks jostling around. iOS has taken several tools, digitized them, put them into an easy to use device, and made my life so much easier.

Let the camera stay in the car.
Now, every photographer knows you never travel without a camera. Heck, I lug my D90 just about everywhere I go. Yet, there are times it just does not work to my advantage to haul a camera, tripod, lens, notebooks, pens, and camera bag on a scouting trip. Sometimes I just want to hike in, snag a few quick shots, get to the coffee house, and collect my thoughts on the potential shoot ahead of me. The iPhone camera allows me to leave all the bulky equipment in the car while I take a few light test shots and start contemplating how I want to compose my photographic session.

I can then take these shots and upload them to my Flickr page via FlickStackr, or push them to my Facebook page for everyone to see. I can even do some editing on these photos thanks to Filterstorm. All these tools add up to leaving the heavy gear at home and using my iPhone and iPad for all my scouting missions. How do you use your iDevice for you planning missions?

Five For Friday: Week of September 24, 2010

Dark Void Zero:
Dark Void on the consoles may have bombed on the review charts, but the iPhone version is an utterly different story. 8-bit visuals, achievements, online leaderboards, and so much more make this side scrolling shooter a highly addictive game. Capcom, being the devilishly nice company they are, is even feeling a bit generous and letting you get it for a lousy $0.99 this weekend.

Enjoy all 14 levels and 8 bosses in this side scrolling shooter. Even better, this game is rocking a sweet sale right now.

Of course, a criminal needs a sleek way of getting around town. Boost cars, motorcycles, boats, and helicopters to give those walking legs a break.

iA Writer:
Sometimes you just need a distraction free writing zone. No noise, no auto correcting of grammar or words, not even toolbars bars stand in your way with this app. iA Writer will give you a distraction free writing area. Once that draft is completed, look at how long it will take to read with the included reading time feature. Sometimes you just need a minimalistic writing space to get your thoughts out. iA Writer is that place of writing Zen.

Numbers:
Numbers is not a new app by any means. What is new about it is a patch that now makes this app worth your money. Exporting to Excel files is FINALLY available after a long waiting period. All the complaining can finally be put to rest over this issue. If you need a good-looking, yet powerful, spreadsheet editor, this is worth your coin.
