A distraction free writing environment created by writers, for writers
Poe is a modern rich-text enabled distraction free editing suite.
It has lots of features that can help you to craft your next masterpiece, but the best thing it does is just staying out of your way and letting you write.
RICH TEXT, IN AN OPEN FORMAT
The Poe editor supports bold, italics, strikethrough, lists, headers and more. It saves everything as markdown, in a universally accessible .md or .txt file that any other app can open.
See at a glance how many words, sentences, and characters are in your document, or how many you've written since you opened the app.
Set yourself a target - for example, 500 words - and Poe will let you know when you've reached that goal with a non-intrusive toast notification, or an on-screen progress bar.
Got a limited amount of time to write? Set yourself an alarm to let you know when it's time to stop writing.
Never lose work. Poe saves right back to the file you opened. It also keeps any unsaved work in temp files. If you close the app and forget to save, Poe resurrects your work and prompts you to save it this time. This also protects against unexpected events like power loss. You can now also change how often Poe autosaves.
Poe comes with lots of preset themes, but you can also change the colors, fonts, text-size and spacing to whatever you prefer.
Poe has a list of handy writing resources which can be accessed from within the app.
