After 7 years I created a successor. All who purchased it within the last year received an update for free that time. Shame on me. Within that 7 years no one ver paid for an update. No one ever had to pay for big myWritings updates as well! The successor of my WordPress App was a free update for all owners. Yeah, I am really a very greedy person. This is an App Store App. I am not responsable for the App Store and its guidelines and most of all its restrictions I tried to avoud for myWritings owner and I tried to make everybody happy with maintaining two versions - which simply was a failure because no one supports independent developers directly anymore. We all use the App Store now. All who purchased myWritings within the last 3 month can request a redeem code and myWritings us updated to already work with Mountain Lion. I am really one of the worst developers out there with only one goal in mind - to ripp of my customers… I am sorry - but before acussing someone one should get the facts strait - you can say a lot about me - but ripping of people is not in my skill set. I did not just went into the App Storte and collected twice like many others and I never just abandon Apps and charge again and therefore such comments really ***** - sorry my dictionary does not give me any politically correct words for what I am thinking right now…

I recently purchased yKey as a replacement for Quickeys. I have been very happy with the choice. It is 64-bit compatible and does everything I did in Quickeys with simplicity and grace. Highly recommend it for those facing upgrades to Mac Catalina that will require 64 bit compatibility

Write 2 is a great basic word processor, but for me, it falls short because it doesn't seem to be able to save a 2-column landscape format as a template. So every time I open it I have to set it up that way from scratch. Not a huge problem, but a deal-breaker for me.

With tons of markup text processors these days it is nice to see a lightweight and matured »conventional« text app that can read and write several formats (rtd, rtfd, doc, docx, odt, html, etc.). Write 2 incorporates quite the same features as »Bean« but with a US$ 9 price tag. Unfortunately, Write 2 can display MS Word documents with basic formatting but falls short on more sophisticated documents. The same documents are rendered beautifully by Preview, Pages, or LibreOffice. The program´s author has no intention to correct these shortcomings and argues users should not expect such features in a program »sold for the price of a cup of coffee«. Therefore, I cannot recommend Write 2 until the author changes his attitude and the compatibility towards Word documents.

I love the MoApp guy. He ALWAYS does this, doesn't even check if there's another App & then just throws a name on an app. In some cases just rotates an icon and BOOM, $9 app. Am I right? Compare with Write.app from WriteApp.net, which has dark mode, OS X & iOS Apps, and is still at version 1 -- and despite no updates, still works fine.

Much better than Bean and still under active development. Had a problem this weekend and today the update came out fixing it. I wish others would offer such a support.

And a full year has passed without updates. I am worried MOApp has added yet another app to its list of sudden abandonment!

Tried it. Nice little text app with it's own original approach to things (and some nice included templates in the demo). It and Bean are comparable, but $7 isn't unreasonable for a well implemented app and the developer CLEARLY states they are happy to hear feedback and troubleshoot things on the first-time launch screen.

Just TextEdit but worse. Even for free this would not cut the bill. I can highly recommend Bean. It is free and awesome.

This looks an awful lot like it's just a repackaged and renamed version of 'Schreiben', an older (and abandoned?) program by the same developer, but released under his company name 'MoApp'.

Developer -- What is the difference between this app, MOAppsWrite and your other app, myWritings?
