Excellent application if you want to boost your productivity while writing. Templates are quite good as well.

Better than Scrivener because I focus on writing now. Links would be nice though.

A very helpful writing tool that helps me focus on the content rather than on its presentation.

Is this app worth the price? I do a lot of writing but I am not sure if I should purchase it or not.

This app appears to have doubled in price. It's now $19.99. Looks like the macupdate page needs updating.

Although I haven't used some of the more epensive direct competition like Ulysses (though I own the previous version) or the unlocked version of Bear Notes, I am very pleased with IA Writer for much of my writing. It's beautiful (custom font, design, even little things like the blue cursor), it's powerful (able to insert links to graphics, pdfs and more) and it's well designed and stable.

I hope to soon try out the publish-to-Wordpress functionality that's built in.

I wish there were some more user customizations but it's a solid app and works beautifully with its iOS version too.

Without an Outline panel, I've had to discard this app for editing long documents; that is to say, for all my writing. I've replaced it with Typora.
And for pre-production Marked 2 is better. Though once I have it, I may try to use iA Writer to highlight adjectives, nouns, etc. That's it.

iA Writer Pro is a fine app. It does what it claims. It's a no frills word processor for creative ones. I use it regularly. I have never had problems with the software's quality.

Like most writers, I keep several apps around. Some I've always liked, some I used to like but now don't use much, and a few I turn to virtually every day. For me there are three of those every-day apps. Scrivener, the workhorse for just about any task. Byword, for quick sketches and direct posting to WordPress. And the current version of iAWriter, which is where I write short fiction and essays. Just what I want.

Unfortunately I can not get this software to run stably. it keeps crashing on both OS X and iOS which is a shame as I really want to use it.

As of Version 3 (currently at 3.0.1) iA Writer and iA Writer Pro are merged back into a single program. If you bought iA Writer Pro through the App Store version 3 is a free upgrade. So far I'm liking it much better than the old 'Pro' version with it's convoluted workspaces (writing, editing, notes).

How can the developer dare to name this software "Writer Pro" when there is since years a software by the name "Nisus Writer Pro"?

Love the concept, but with no trial version how can one objectively decide whether it will work for them? Especially a writing app. Most of the MAS reviews are not good regarding version 1.0 (current version as of my writing this comment).
