Keep writing simple with ZetaWord

Compose text documents with minimal interruptions using ZetaWord.

There are plenty of word-processing programs on the market, but a new one will always be compared to Word or Notepad. ZetaWord falls somewhere between those two, pairing the look and feel of Notepad with some of the features of Word. However, it fails to eliminate the usefulness of the latter by outperforming the former.

ZetaWord installs easily and has a neat and simple interface with four main links: File, Edit, Tools, and Help. It resembles Notepad but it offers a more pleasant text layout. It doesn't display code that well, though, so it doesn't outperform Notepad there. ZetaWord does offer a few extra options such as Word Count, Sort Alphabetically, and Reverse Line Order. However, you can't change the layout, font, or appearance of the text. It doesn't allow you to save your file in the format of your choice, either, which should be a basic for any word processor.

Overall, ZetaWord works well but doesn't really stand out. This program needs a bit of polishing since it's competing in a very crowded market of word-processing programs where others like Simple Sticky Notes and Notepad++ run circles around it.
