It works, it's easy to use, it's free. What more can you want?
On 10.9, and good as ever.
Write Room is not fancy. It will not automatically transform your ideas into finished prose. But if you want to write — to get your words onto the screen, then edit and revise and polish them in a smooth, uncluttered environment — this may be just the thing.
As if it weren't already a prize winner, there's now CriticMarkup, so those of us who compulsively tweak and re-tweak can easily keep track of our fussiness.

Version 0.2 is in MAS for $2.99, and works with 10.7.

DrFrank (below) has already made the first point I wanted to address: U3 is not an upgrade from U2. It is a whole new machine.

Does exactly what it says, even more. Flexible and versatile, and a dev who listens to feedback.
