iA Writer (was iA Writer Pro) is a professional writing suite that gives you full control over your notes, drafts and edits.
- Workflow: Note – Write – Edit – Read. Each stage has a task-specific typeface and color.
- Syntax Control scans the syntax of English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish text and highlights your adjectives, nouns, verbs, adverbs, prepositions or conjunctions.
- Precision Writing Tools:
- Auto Markdown formats text on-screen — your hands stay on the keyboard
- Syntax Control introduces syntactic markup for natural language text. It covers English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. Patent pending.
- Convert Markdown to Microsoft Word 2007 .docx, and back again
- Workflow states
- Custom typefaces, carefully set for optimal readability
- In-app preview
- Reading time, plus sentence, word, and character count
- Real-time iCloud sync
