Surface Pro 4 :: JustWrite

by Volker Weber

Sketch

On iOS and Mac I use iA Writer when writing copy. It's just plain text, no formatting whatsoever. On Surface I went back to Word Mobile, which is complete overkill and often distracts me with auto-format, smart quotes, auto-link and similar helpers. I really need something that I can take fullscreen and type away. I just found a program that does exactly that. It does not even have a file menu. You can only have one text and that autosaves. The screenshot above shows JustWrite next to Twitter, which defies the purpose. I justed wanted to show the difference between an app that has some chrome and an entirely bare one.

I still prefer WriteMonkey, which hides quite a lot under its fullscreen hood. So far, I have not found any decent distraction free UWP editor.

I briefly looked at it and did not like it at all.

The developer is currently working on a v3 (complete rewrite) that looks very promising already. And I have not yet abandoned all hope that one day we might see an iA Writer for Windows ;-)

Yes, that would be what I really want.

WriteMoney is not my cup of tea, but I enjoy using http://www.baara.com/q10/ from time to time.

Indeed. Q10 looks promising.
