Go Writer Lite for Mac helps you take notes, brainstorm ideas, and jot down your thoughts, easily. A basic word processor, it comes with a couple of interesting features that set it apart from other similar apps. If you're looking for a light text processing app, you'll like it, but be warned that you'll need to upgrade to the full version as this is just a free trial version.

While Go Writer Lite for Mac may not be stylish when it comes to its looks, the features redeem it. It comes with a draft board for typing and reworking sentences and ideas, the ability to quickly insert comments, graphics, and Web links into your documents and change the background color, a notepad for quickly taking notes, and even the option to add the sound of a typewriter to accompany your typing. On top of these options, you also get the basic and advanced text-formatting options you'd expect from an app of this kind. While not too visually appealing, the interface is well organized, resulting in a good user experience. Once your editing is done, you can save files in a number of formats, including Rich Text. A separate selection can be made to export to PDF, which is a choice available in most competing programs.

Overall, Go Writer Lite for Mac is a fully-functional word processor with nice features. There's a catch, though. The Lite version is only a free trial -- to get all the features you need to buy the full version.
