Writings for iPad

Sometimes I come across something so simple or so elegant or so dang fun to use that I have to share it.

Imagine the bloated Microsoft Word product for a moment with the ribbon, endless options and sluggish performance many of us have grown accustomed to. Using Word to create a simple text document is akin to removing a sliver with a battle ax.

Writings for the iPad is the polar opposite of Word. It’s simple, elegant and actually fun to use which isn’t an adjective often used to describe a text editor.

It might be the best 99 cents you’ll spend if you own an iPad and your editing needs are simple. I use Writings to jot down notes and create blog posts like you’re reading now. It also syncs to Dropbox.
