"Focuses the mind."

March 17, 2011  |  By ThomasHarte

 |  Version: WriteRoom 2.3.7

Pros

Minimalist, even to the extent of dealing with files for you, fast and light.

Cons

Could be cheaper; same functionality built into StoryMill which costs twice as much but does about ten times as much if you're looking towards writing character driven prose.

Summary

It's a c.1985 digital typewriter, for your Mac. A great tool for when you want to focus on getting some text onto the screen, without distractions.

"writing with this program will not make your eyes tired"

November 29, 2010  |  By salidown

 |  Version: WriteRoom 2.3.7

Pros

I like the blank dark screen and various format's that it represents.

Cons

it's expensive. but it's worthy.

Summary

I tried many opensource and free programs most of them are not even close to Writeroom!
with help of this program I really could focus just on what I intend to write and after I finished my writing I can save it any format I like. And above all it doesn't make my eyes tired.

"The only software that helps you focus on writing."

November 29, 2010  |  By ilgaar

 |  Version: WriteRoom 2.3.7

Pros

Great when you want to focus on writing, without a distraction, excellent when you need those features from complex word processors. above all it supports most common and proprietary format like .doc, .docx and many more.

Cons

It's a bit expensive but the usefulness of the product makes it worthy.

Summary

A genius idea to keep the writer focused on his thoughts and write down his ideas without distraction while having features, options and many functions when you need them.

"This is a joke, right?"

November 07, 2009  |  By Joe M

 |  Version: WriteRoom 2.3.7

Pros

Retro-looking display, if you're into that kind of thing.

Cons

Costs 25 bucks, and gives almost nothing in return.

Summary

Look, I understand the appeal of streamlined, even minimalist applications, but this is stupid. 25 bucks for a TextEdit shell that actually removes functionality from the rich text editor that comes included with OS X.

For what? A "distraction-free" display? Just how ADD must you be to get "distracted" by TextEdit? If your are bent on having a retro-looking editing screen, download Bean for free, which gives you that option.

I can't help but think this was intended as a joke by the program author...
