About this app

Writer is a writing application without the fuss and distraction of a traditional word processor. It's perfect for everything from taking notes to writing a novel on your phone or tablet.

Writer's philosophy is Keep It Simple. Writer tries to be as basic as possible, giving you somewhere to turn your thoughts into text, markdown support, and some statistics. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Note: Files are currently stored stored in sdcard://Writer/. Future versions of Writer will allow you to select a custom directory, share documents through email, and synchronize your documents using Dropbox and Box.net

Edit: June 30th 2022: app takes a VERY long time to load up compared to other apps on my phone. I haven't bogged it down or anything. It's just being slow. Original: This app is an awesome, simple, no-fuss notes app. I've been using it for years and through three phone changes. It often impresses me with how much it remembers even if I close the app or my phone dies mid-thought. An absolute lifesaver compared to apps that are far too bogged down with ads and unnecessary design/functions.

This app is very good. However, I find it annoying that whenever I type something incorrectly and I click it to correct it, the screen goes completely white. I exit out and reopen my page and the last few lines that I have written disappear. This is very frustrating. Overall this is a good app with a nice interface. I also appreciate the estimated reading time that can be applied to what is written.

Been using this app on multiple devices over the years. Great for making lists, taking notes, etc., files are organized, and there no ads/IAPs whatsoever. I'm giving it four stars only because of the one issue I just now discovered: a character limit. I was making a document listing musical albums I've discovered over the past several months and at around 10,500 characters, I hit an invisible wall and could no longer add anything.
