While digging through endless bookmarks and links trying to track down an old forgotten website I came across an amazing application for mac OSX that creates a simple, beautiful, responsive environment for writing. I know there has been a rash of minimal writing applications lately but none have taken things to this level. The app not only creates a minimal writing surface free of distraction but goes the extra mile and adds audio and visual elements to create an experience unlike any other I have seen in a word processing app. It’s absolutely refreshing to write in this space. The customizable workspace is fantastic and a clear, concise set of tools appear only when you need them to be there. I can easily see myself using this often as I sit down to focus on a post for the site or any other writing needs.
One of the nicest things about the app is the fact that it has a full featured version that is totally free of charge. An additional version appears to be available as well which contains even more options to customize the experience. In fact that is exactly what OmmWriter does, it creates a full tangible experience for your writing. I can safely say this will end up living in my dock as a go to app when I need to sit down and focus on writing and I highly recommend anyone in need of a great writing experience to take a few minutes and have a look at what its all about.
More information can be found on the official site for the app www.ommwriter.com.
Update: the application is now available on the Mac App store as well. You can access it though this link.
