# The Simple Writing App

iA Writer removes distractions. Giving you a calm, focused, writing space, so you can express yourself clearly.

# Focus

Focus Mode dims everything but the current sentence or paragraph, helping you stay in the flow.

# Start

Don’t worry about the format. First, write in plain text. Then preview in HTML.

# Organize

Search, sort, and quickly swap between documents from different clouds.

# Customize

When you tap and hold a key in the command keyboard, you’re given the chance to choose your own layout. Rearrange your keys, or pick new ones from the extensive list.

# Search

You can open documents and launch frequent actions in no time with the new Quick Search. It lives in the keyboard so it’s always close at hand.

# Work

iA Writer includes an inverted light-on-dark-mode, perfect for working day and night.

# Clean

Spot superfluous adjectives, weak verbs, repetitive nouns, false conjunctions and clean your text of the usual rumble.

# Shape

Customize your templates and export to WordPress or Medium, HTML, Microsoft Word (.docx), or PDF.

# 100% Text

Embed links, pictures, tables and text files in plain text and see them in preview.

Accessibility Comments: 

As far as I can see the app is entirely accessible except for a few quirks. Buttons that appear in the library also appear in the editor but can't be activated from the latter. Other than that, everything works.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

I'm surprised nobody submitted this app yet. I mean this thing's been out for years. Oh well, now you'll better know what to expect as a blind person before you buy.
