A good choice of text editor if all you need and want is writing
A minialist text editor that designed for writers to help them focus on writing.While there are a lot of writing tools available in the market, most of them allow complicated formatting which become source of distraction when only task of the user is to write.
This may not be so suitable for students since we need the extra functions and styling most of the time.
iA Writer implements fixed settings (background color, font type, font size, spacing) to force people concentrating on the text. While this is highly appreciated by some, it just does not work on the others at all.
Tips for using the product
Although styling is not allowed obviously, markdowns could be used for formatting including bold, italic, strikethrough, heading, etc.
