# The Simple Writing App
iA Writer removes distractions. Giving you a calm, focused, writing space, so you can express yourself clearly.

# Focus
Focus Mode dims everything but the current sentence or paragraph, helping you stay in the flow.

# Start
Don’t worry about the format. First, write in plain text. Then preview in HTML.

# Organize
Search, sort, and quickly swap between documents from different clouds.

# Customize
When you tap and hold a key in the command keyboard, you’re given the chance to choose your own layout. Rearrange your keys, or pick new ones from the extensive list.

# Search
You can open documents and launch frequent actions in no time with the new Quick Search. It lives in the keyboard so it’s always close at hand.

# Work
iA Writer includes an inverted light-on-dark-mode, perfect for working day and night.

# Clean
Spot superfluous adjectives, weak verbs, repetitive nouns, false conjunctions and clean your text of the usual rumble.

# Shape
Customize your templates and export to WordPress or Medium, HTML, Microsoft Word (.docx), or PDF.

# 100% Text
Embed links, pictures, tables and text files in plain text and see them in preview.
