Writer Pro is a professional writing suite that introduces syntax analysis and a simple workflow. Syntax Control™ scans English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish text, and highlights your adjectives, nouns, verbs, adverbs, prepositions, or conjunctions. On iPhone and iPad, Syntax Control currently works for English text only.

A Simple Workflow

Note. Write. Edit.

Writer Pro’s simple workflow is built around how you work: Start with your ideas in Note, flesh them out in Write, progress to Edit for refining, then move to Read when you’re done. Rather than a limiting modal interface, these Workflow states act as environments to focus you on the task at hand. A document’s state syncs via iCloud across connected devices, and each state has a task-specific font and color.

Note

Structure your thoughts and ideas. Writer avoids formatting settings for fonts and colors: all you can do is write. Writer for iOS comes with an elegant keyboard extension that lets you navigate left and right, with direct access to punctuation, statistics, document editing tools, and Syntax Control. Swipe between documents on iPad and iPhone.

Write

Writer Pro reduces to the essence: a pure, spartan writing experience. As soon as you type, the title bar disappears and all you see is a clean typing sheet, ready for your ideas to take shape. Use Sentence Syntax Mode to fully concentrate, one sentence at a time. Paired with an iPad, or Full Screen mode on the Mac, it is a writing machine.

Edit

Once your rough draft is done, switch to Edit to see your text as a reader would. Writer Pro for Mac lets you format your documents without taking your hands from the keyboard. Syntax Control dims everything but the chosen syntax, helping you to control your writing style.

Read

With iCloud, any edits you make are instantly synced to all your devices. Built on beautiful typography, Writer Pro uses outstanding custom typefaces from the world-class type design studios Bold Monday and Klim Type Foundry.
