Writer is the Text Editor You’ve Been Looking For

Most likely, Writer is the text editor you’ve been waiting for your entire life. Writer is a simple text editor that is designed to keep you focused on what your are writing, and not worry about layout and formatting.
Writer is a minimal text editor that can be used in windowed and fullscreen mode. Version 1.3 was recently released and lets you set fullscreen background transparency, which is pretty cool. Writer has a live word count at the bottom right of the window, a feature missing from other text editors like Apple’s TextEdit. Another cool feature in Writer is the ability to pin-down the window so it will stay on top of everything else, even if it’s not the active app or window. This is very useful when referencing other work and helps you keep track of your documents when lots of windows are open.
Writer is available in the Mac App Store for $9.99.
