Paragraphs overview

Paragraphs is an app just for writers. It was built for one thing and one thing only: writing. It gives you everything you need to create brilliant prose and does away with the rest.

Features
  • Everything in context. Don't stress trying to memorize confusing markup. Paragraphs' quick context menu provides simple, easy-to-use formatting options right where you need them.
  • Focus on what you do best. Gone are the complicated menus and distracting widgets of traditional word processors. When you begin typing in Paragraphs the interface melts away and you're left with only what you write.
  • Sensible Settings. Paragraphs features multiple layout and font styles that look great by default. There's also Dark Mode, for a comfortable writing experience at night.

I like the clean design but it feels unfinished. Two problems in particular: 1. There's no way to organise documents into projects - every document you create becomes another giant rectangular icon in the crowded "overview" area. There's not even a text-only option for the overview. 2. There's no way to sync created documents with other Macs or iOS devices. There's an "on iCloud" option in one of the menus, but it's permanently greyed out and nothing in the documentation about how to use it. And there's no indication of where files are actually stored or any way to change that location, so I can't use Dropbox either. With a bit more work, it could be a budget version of Ulysses, but it's not there yet.

If it's so basic and simple why does it only run on 10.10+? If I just need to write with nothing in the way then I use TextEdit. It's free, it's easy and it's on your Mac right now. And it runs on all versions of OSX.
