Editors' Review

FocusWriter Portable is a word processing program designed to eliminate distractions, so you can settle into the task at hand quickly. With a customizable interface and an emphasis on productivity, this program lets you shape your writing experience in a unique way to help maximize your productivity.

Pros

Themes and images: In this program, you can set your own themes and add background images to create an environment more conducive to writing. You can also adjust these settings, depending on your mood or the type of writing you need to get done.

Data selection: In order to maximize your productivity, you can also choose to see only the type of data you want. Options include displaying word count, page count, paragraph count, and character count. You can also adjust page size by setting the number of words, characters, or paragraphs you want to appear per page.

Cons

Spell check bugs: There is a Spell Check function in this program, but it doesn't work. Even manually running it on deliberately misspelled words yielded no results.

Bottom Line

FocusWriter doesn't come with a lot of the bells and whistles available on other word processing programs, but that's by design. Its goal is to let you create the best working environment for you, and since it's free, it's worth checking out to see if it's a good fit for your needs.
