WriteRoom for iPhone/iPod Touch

For you Mac users who are probably already familiar with the Mac text editor by Hog Bay Software, then you'll definetely gonna find the mobile version to be very useful for your iPhone/iPod Touch (v2.0 software update or above is required).

WriteRoom allows you to create documents using any of the iPhone’s built-in fonts and with fonts of any number of sizes. You can also go a few steps further and customize the background, font, and scroller color from the default color scheme of white type on a black background.

According to a review by Scott McNulty from Macworld; the $5 priced app also allow you to sync with your Mac: "Syncing is addressed in a clever way, that, technically, isn’t syncing at all but rather sharing."

Here's a list of WriteRoom's main features that might interest you:
  • Full-screen editing. WriteRoom's full-screen mode hides it all away leaving just you and your text behind.
  • Document based auto-save. Your documents are stored in standard text file formats and autosaved in the background to help protect your work in case the power goes out.
  • Distraction free features. The menu bar, scroll bar, and word count appear when you move your mouse to the edge of the screen.
  • 'Retro'-fit your cursor. Prefer block cursors to bars? Hate blinking cursors? WriteRoom has every combination you'd want.
  • Standalone or Edit-In. Use WriteRoom on its own for all your text editing needs, or let WriteRoom be your ticket to full-screen editing for text in any compatible program.
