Powerful and useful features as you write. iWriter Pro gives writers plenty of useful tools as they are writing and editing documents. You can search for specific keywords that you may want to replace, jump to specific sections if you formatted it properly with Markdown syntax, or export your work elsewhere. The app also has a keyboard extension that gives you quick access to indentations and special characters that you commonly use, such as periods, colons, hashtags, and asterisks. No matter what you need to write, iWriter Pro gives you a simple and professional way to complete the job.
Access your files. With iWriter Pro, users can access files stored locally on the device, in their iCloud, or even in Dropbox. The initial sync may take a while if you have a lot of files, but changes sync fairly quickly and you have access to everything, including folders. Just find what you need, then tap on it to view and edit. iWriter Pro also has a sleek interface that is easy and straightforward to navigate too.
