iA Writer App Tips, Tricks and Rules

iA Writer Reviews


Gaensel  Ganssel  1 star

This app is ... was a great writing program but it doesn't know if it wants to be a cloud storage app! OR a Writing app. Once had great, file handling, I just want to write which updates have ruined. Another update! This app has got worse! Deleting it once and for all!


Great, but would like more Appearance options  Noah534879  5 star

Hi! Thanks for the great application. I however would love to have more control over the appearance/design. Both of the fonts are very nice, but would also love to see more iOS-bundled fonts, such as San Francisco and Avenir Next. These aren’t fixed-width fonts, but that is fine with me. Line height, and character spacing would also be very welcome. Please make it happen!

Fabulous  Steve C, Australia  5 star

Awesome markdown-based editor. Clean, Simple and effective. Syncs (via iCloud) to my iPad and MacBook so I can work across devices.


Poor Dropbox support  GroomedMonkey  3 star

Terrific app hamstrung by poor Dropbox support. Works best if one is content with notes being in a sandboxed icloud folder only.


Dropbox integration: technically.  Rachios  1 star

Files on Dropbox must be opened *individually*. No way to link up with a folder within Dropbox. Worthless for my use case.


Avoid until updated  Poulain  2 star

Constantly crashing; has corrupted multiple documents; avoid until updated.


Good all-round editor and file manager  JssClvn  5 star

Generally well thought-out design. You can either use it as a simple text editor and manager, or as a more powerful tool. Syncing works basically flawlessly. The custom keyboard row is super helpful. Receives fairly regular updates.

So wanted it to be...  Ian Derek Bee  1 star

Got (had) it on all my devices. I am a writer, and after belting out three thousand words, I find it sometimes refuses to sync. Happened three times. Dropped it like a hot potato.



I have iA Writer on 3 iDevices and on my MacBook Air! It has become my first choice writing app. It just gets better as I learn more of its features. Highly recommend!


Best writing app on iOS  Rics1979  5 star

Hands down the most friendly and intuitive writing experience on the iPhone. Updates just keep making it better.
