Focus on what you're writing with these minimalist, distraction-free apps

Good writing requires not only a considerable amount of time to pull off — it also calls for a lot of concentration. So it helps to use word processor apps where content is king, apps that emphasize distraction-free writing with minimalist user interfaces, apps that rid their menus of clutter to simply provide — above all else — a page to write in. And you’ll find such apps right here.
