What's The Apps: iA Writer



this episode of what's the apt is brought to you by goto meeting well hello there folks is junk you hear from TechnoBuffalo hope you guys are doing swell welcome to another episode of what's the apps today we're gonna get our writing on with a little application called IA writer III a writer I a writer AIA writer yes AIA writer joins many other mobile apps based on that oh so wonderful and magical cloud thing that all the kids are talking about these days I a writer stands apart from mother writing note-taking and tech stock editing apps with his focus on user experience and simplicity its minimalistic UI execution styling syncing and saving is all specifically designed and engineered to provide the user with a seamless writing experience allowing them to focus more on the content they're writing verses things like formatting and whatnot which is all done automatically by the way no fuss no muss although I would like to consider myself as one I'm not really a writer of any sorts more of a casual always good-looking and always suave note taker but based on the comments and reviews of others the writers or the people who write as a hobby really really dig this app and I mean really dig it and I can see why the syncing allows you to resume exactly where you left off regardless of device be it your laptop desktop iPhone or iPad I a writer's keyboard is also optimized providing quick access to punctuation keys as well as providing you with left and right arrows very handy going from the iPhone to the iPad you'll notice more short keys on the keyboard as well as focus mode which puts more visual emphasis on the paragraph or sentence you're working on this has got to be my favorite feature and it's available on the desktop version as well but not on the iPhone the documents background is slightly off-white which helps you a little bit when you're staring at the thing for hours on end they also use a slab serif kind of font which helps with the readability unfortunately even with all these amazing features I a writer selling point also happens to be its downfall I a writer's reliant on either iCloud and/or Dropbox for sinking sinking on iCloud is extremely buggy I often for five minutes get prompted to resolve sync issues if I have ia writer activated on multiple devices the developers have said that they're working on it but for now it's extremely annoying Dropbox seems to work much better but some have reported issues with file ordering another downfall would be the price it currently goes for $0.99 for both the iPad and the iPhone which is fair but the desktop client goes for a rather steep $8.99 especially considering similar multi-platform cloud-based services like Evernote go for the awesome low low price of get this free and speaking awesome I'm gonna take some time to thank our friends at GoToMeeting being able to attach a face to a name is super important it enhances how we do abysus and how we build our relationships but sometimes meeting everyone face to face you know all your clients your friends your colleagues can be impossible especially if they're kind of scattered all around the world that's why I recommend GoToMeeting with HD faces unless you meet face-to-face from anywhere even on the go let's meet face to face from anywhere even on the go with an iPad with GoToMeeting by Citrix it takes just a webcam and a click to collaborate in group HD video you can see your attendees eye-to-eye while collaborating on documents in real time you will feel instantly connected even if you're thousands of miles apart plus GoToMeeting is just so easy to use iPad users just download the free GoToMeeting app to join I use goto meeting from time to time I have the app on my iPad and it's really nice to have that mobile freedom because when you're sitting and working all day this feels nice to kind of walk around pace and just stretch your legs in a little bit one time when the conference was going on I had the app on my iPad I was just walking walking walking while everybody was all conferencing it's great TechnoBuffalo viewers can try goto meeting free for 30-days don't

you're looking for a minimalistic cloud-based writing app I a writer's definitely worth taking a look at I would advise you to try it out on your iPhone or iPad first before picking up the $9 desktop clients if you just want something simple and cheap i'd reccomend Evernote all you got to do is sign up for an account it works and it's free so I a writer 3.5 out of 5 at least for now until they fix
