WriteRoom updated as universal app for iPhone and iPad

Hog Bay Software has updated their writing app, WriteRoom, to be a universal app for iPhone and iPad and brings many new features.

Distraction-free interface keeps your text in focus. Dropbox synched folders keep your documents organized. Fonts and colors make the environment yours.

  • Dropbox sync and iTunes file sharing access to your files.
  • A new universal UI that works on all iOS 4.0 and up devices.
  • Many new font and color settings to customize your writing room.
  • Drag-to-scroll scroll bar for quick navigation bigger documents.
  • In full-screen view, tap margins to move cursor toward margin (iPad)
  • Extended keyboard row with customizable keys. (iPad)

This app is the ultimate choice for writers who prefer a minimalist, distraction free environment. It must be tempting to throw extra features into WriteRoom, but Hog Bay Software have stayed true to their vision of the app and only added necessary features like word count, text search and TextExpander support while still keeping WriteRoom clutter free.

WriteRoom is available for $4.99. Screenshots after the break.
