iA Writer is a delight. 💻
@Burk I’ve often been tempted by iA, but I’ve found my writing zen in ByWord. I just wish I could publish directly from ByWord to here.
@Burk it is pretty awesome.
@yorrike @burk byword was probably my first text editor ever! Thus I still have lots of love for the app.
@Burk Agreed! I made the switch from Ulysses last year and have found the interface and control over .txt files to be excellent.
@yorrike Byword is great as well. Direct publishing would be pretty great
@Burk gee thanks ... iawriter, drafts and Ulysses already on board ... and now I’m being pulled into ByWord ... harumph .... 🤯
@JohnPhilpin Whoever dies with the most text editors wins.
@JohnPhilpin cough go with iA Writer cough
@JohnPhilpin iAWriter is the BBEdit of iOS...
@rnv well that has to be me ... I forgot Editorial and not counting things like Bear and Notes.
@Burk IA Writer and Drafts tends to be where I currently sit.
@kaa and I assume that is a good thing?
@JohnPhilpin it’s a polarising one :). Some peeps (myself included) don’t get BBEdit. So can certainly understand if iAWriter isn’t for you :)
@kaa aaaahh but it is ... out of all the ones i have it gets used the most - apart from drafts - but that for mr tends to be more of a collection app than full on writing
@Burk I concur, as Lisa Simpson says. It's my go-to for first drafts of everything I write.
@yorrike Byword's no slouch, either.
@JohnPhilpin Yeah, I'm Drafts (capturing), Bear (notes), iaWriter (writing) too. Trying to decide between Scrivener and Ulysses for big-writing-projects (organization). Struggling with that decision.
Oh yeah! And Fade In for scripts.
@grayareas scrivener - forgot that one. Have it - tried it - but steep learning curve to get most out of it.
@JohnPhilpin I would be abandoning Macs entirely in favor of Linux for the desktop, if it were not for Scrivener. But I'll need to take another look at Ulysses. If it could do the trick, my last tie to MacOs would be eased enormously.
@philipbrewer i sit solidly in mac land - knowing enough not to bother with microsoft and google but not enough to get into the linux world
/// BTW in Mac land - if you use SetApp - Ulysses is part of the offer.
