    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.

    I'm wondering what you dislike about Write 2, since you give no specifics. Saying worse than TextEdit doesn't help, since I think TextEdit is an excellent editor. Could you give us more info.

    BTW, I also recommend Bean. That developer really stays with his product and supports it for years (unlike MOApp's developer, I sorry to say).

    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…

    Well, I don't think the paid upgrade from Schreiben to myWritings was 7 years old.
    But: the license fee is very small to begin with so that would be acceptable.

    I understand now however that all MOApps are transitioned into the App Store, so to maintain those, I will have to buy the licenses to all successors of the MOApps I own.
    I understand the rationale, but I have to think what I'll do. Probably stick with my current versions.

    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'.

    I think it is the new name for MOAppsWrite, which is the Appstore light version of MyWritings, which is the successor of Schreiben.

    Yeah, I've bought a whole lot of his apps in the past. It took me a couple of years to see the pattern: he creates several text editor/journaling/blogging-type apps, abandons them after a year or so, only to create yet more of the same. And repeat this cycle, and then again. And again. The list of abandoned titles is long.

    It's an ADHD style of software development. He's good at creating apps, but I guess he gets bored maintaining them for any length of time.

    Granted, he's charging less per title on the Mac App Store than he was through his web store, but still,...

    I had migrated my workflow to his apps, but since I wizened up, i've un-migrated back out of them. I won't be buying any more of his (admittedly very nice) creations.

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

    I second this question. It would be great to have some sort of comparison chart on the site. I am lost too.

    I call Write myWritings little sister (mind the price tag) - the App Store rules do not allow to talk about 'pro' versions or to link to them or any charts from within the App Store and I dropped demo versions and extra information last months for the App Store Apps - no one (yes, 1 out of 1000) leaves the App Store to take a look at the developer page or to download the demo - it simply does not make any sense to double the work and to clutter the website - I don't understand it - but that's the way people (or most of them) want it - I guess :-0

    "no one (yes, 1 out of 1000) leaves the App Store to take a look at the developer page or to download the demo"

    I am afraid this is not correct (well, as far as I ma concerned) ; the app store is not a place to get information, just a store. I always use MU site and visit the developers' sites which are way more complete and informative than the app store.
    I also try not to buy through the app store ; don't ask me why, just a nasty "big brother" feeling about it.
