An interesting app...I never thought I would have much use for it though. Till I tried writing a report with it.

It rankled me that i could not format, style, or add fancy graphs etc to my report as I wrote, but I got a lot more work done in the end. That's when I realized I put far too much effort into presentation, and less into content...

Writeroom is worth a try even if you consider the concept stupid. You might be pleasantly surprised...

I really thought it would not work. I downloaded the demo version from the website, tested it... 5 minutes later I realized I was writing again. Grat. Simple, primitive principle but certainly does work.

I am in a bit of a bind. I can't register my download. The WriteRoom registration dialogue box won't even let me select the OK button to try and send it. I'm not for sure if I have the right serial number, but I also don't know where I can find it at. It's been a while since I got if from the Mac Heist website.

That isn't really what WriteRoom was designed for. You best bet would be to do the writing portion in WR and then importing it into a word processor like Mellel, Pages, or Word to add the citations.

Thanks for this product. It got me through NaNoWriMo. I realize it's not meant for footnotes (I like to note what word count I had when I stop writing in the middle of a document) but I just import it to another program. The one thing that got annoying was sometimes the word count at the bottom of the screen would not update itself, even after opening the program again. Not a huge issue unless you're writing against the clock! I'll have to give it more use in a non-NaNoWriMo month.

The offer ended months ago. Your best bet would be to find it in other bundles or just wait for MH4.

For me it's really hard to not get distracted when writing. I have to actually either power off my phone or leave it somewhere far away from me. But still, when there are so many stuff on the desktop I still get quite more interested in what's going on there rather with what I have to do. That's why WriteRoom is great at what it does when it does what Still, there's a small but -- interaction with the OS and other features is not so much its forte. Still, generally, quite a fine app, especially to those who easily get distracted, like me)))

just a person who curious about lots of things
now am just a freelancer (discover this info here for more) to have more time for making discoveries
