I enjoyed WriteRoom more than ten years ago and up to the present version, but had to stop using it when it was not updated since version 3.2.1 of 08 Aug 2012. Now it seems there may be a version 4 coming up?

WriteRoom of iOS is D E A D as of iOS 11. It never went 64 bit. This fact kills any reason for me to use WriteRoom on Mac as I require something that works on both platforms. Sad. - - But I'm attempting to contact the developer anyway in case there's any chance of his updating it. Ideally, it needs to go 64 bit for both macOS and iOS. Otherwise, so long.

Bought Writeroom 3 a while ago because i was enthusiastic about Writeroom 2. It's advertised as a better product, but it's not. It frustrates to customise and distracts the user from it's workflow, which it should not do, obviously. So, eventually, i still use Writeroom 2, it just works better, cleaner, easier.

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.

I liked WriteRoom 2 because of the flexibility it afforded me in customizing my writing environment - it's about allowing me to focus on writing and not minutiae, right? WriteRoom 3 takes a departure, which has caused me to spend around 20 minutes just trying to get the window how I want it - full screen every time I open WriteRoom, the page is centered (I don't like text scrolling off the edge of my monitor, it's distracting. However, I can't adjust the bottom margin in 3), and a entire black background gives me a headache after awhile. After one spends an hour of customizing, and wasting valuable writing time, it almost works like its predecessor. Until you close it and open it again. Theming isn't as cut-and-dry - I didn't see a Theme editor, so I opened a theme in the text editor (thinking it might be XML-based) and was greeted with gibberish. Since it was an inexpensive upgrade, the value wasn't bad, and so far it hasn't crashed on me. Sorry for the snarky commentary, I'm just frustrated - which I know is a poor excuse. I just don't like my time being wasted.

I wanted to buy version 3 and support its developer but...no Snow Leopard version..I will not buy Lion just for WriteRoom sorry. Very frustrating and annoying to forget about old users..because of what? lack of official icloud support in Snow?

Another heads-up for downloading and installing version 3.1. (I love WriteRoom so not an issue for me on the $5.) You will receive the following window message: Upgrade to WriteRoom 3 The WriteRoom 3 upgrade is free if you ordered WriteRoom 2 after October 2010. If you have an older license, the upgrade is $5. Thanks for your support.

BEFORE you download and replace your existing copy of WriteRoom may sure you understand that this is for LION ONLY. If you do not have a saved copy of Version 2.5.1 (the latest version for Snow Leopard) there is no way to presently download 2.5.1 from the developer's website.
