Ommwriter is a tool for writers that helps avoid distractions that often come with technology and the internet.

As a writer, you know how important it is to have to work under pressure from time to time. Typing is a lot faster than writing, but often the internet offers distractions that are too hard to pass up. Sometimes a normal text editor like Microsoft Word just won't cut it. That's where Ommwriter comes in.

Ommwriter is a minimalist text editing tool that opens exclusively in full screen mode. Its primary aim is to reduce writing distractions, as well as give you a relaxing writing experience. It does this by offering three different writing soundtrack options, as well as three different keyboard sounds when you type. Both types of sound choices can also be shut off, if you so choose.

In addition, Ommwriter gives you three different interface background options, all of which are minimalist but pleasing to the eye. It's also got a great accessibility feature in the ability to change text sizes and fonts.

In this latest version of Ommwriter, you can choose either to save your writing as a text document or to a PDF format that allows for easy printing. It would've been nice to have a few more options in terms of document types it saves to though. Some users might also prefer to add their own soundtracks or personal background favorites, but will be unable to do so because Ommwriter lacks these features.

Ommwriter is also available for the Mac and iPad.

For a minimalist text editor that soothes as well as encourages you to write while eliminating technology-based distractions, Ommwriter is a good bet.

    The only things I would want them to add are basic formatting: italic, bold, centre, and right; and accented letters and... More.
