I’ve been using the iA Writer app for about eight years, both on my iPhone and my iPad. I love it.

The app gets out of the way to let you just focus on writing, creating a great experience on limited mobile screens. I use the iPhone app to take notes in meetings or jot a quick thought or two down while standing in line at the grocery store.

If I have significant down time while on the go, it’s a great tool to hammer out a first draft of a new business proposal.

I’ll use the iPad app in meetings as well but have also used it while traveling to write blog posts, strategy outlines, sketch out a presentation. It’s well worth the $9.99 price. 

iA Writer also comes in a Mac and an Android version.
