Editors' Review

By removing all distractions and extraneous visual noise, iA Writer caters to those who want to only focus on the words. It also includes a number of other features that attempt to make writing more intuitive and streamlined when using a touchscreen device.

Pros

Totally clean: iA Writer does an excellent job of presenting you with a totally blank slate to work on.

Syncing feature: The syncing feature on iA Writer ensures that work you do on one device is reflected immediately on the same file across all your devices. The app is available for iPhone and iPad on iOS, but is also available on your Mac for OS X. You can opt to use either iCloud or Dropbox to perform your synchronization.

Keyboard extension: iA Writer created a keyboard extension that contains commonly sought commands. This includes the ability to move back and forth through text easily, without having to fiddle with dropping a cursor in the exact right spot, which was a very welcome feature.

Cons

Working with multiple files: If you're working on a project that requires juggling multiple files, there is no option for tabbed work or another way to seamlessly and quickly switch between documents, which restricts the types of work the app is suited for.

Bottom Line

If you prefer to work only on a single file at a time, this app is excellent. It has a great keyboard extension, syncs well, and looks great. Only if you need to work on multiple documents might you find it lacking.
