Hog Bay Software releases WriteRoom for the iPhone

September 9, 2008 in Productivity (E)

[prMac.com] Bangor, Maine - Hog Bay Software is delighted to announce WriteRoom for the iPhone. WriteRoom.iPhone is for people who want a simple place to read and write notes on their phone. The functionality is similar to the default notes app, but in a richer and cleaner package. Unlike Notes, WriteRoom also provides optional Wi-Fi access to your documents.

* Clean black and white look.
* Standard fonts and simple black background.
* Use a bigger keyboard in horizontal orientation.
* Access your documents from your computer over Wi-Fi.

Wi-Fi access to your notes is an optional feature. When enabled you can browse to and edit your notes from your local computer in Safari. This feature is not currently password protected. When you enable document sharing anyone on your local network can access your WriteRoom iPhone documents.

This isn't a sync solution, because your notes are always stored on your phone. But this solution does make it easy to quickly get text into and out of your phone, and unlike sync solutions it's very simple. You don't need to install any special software on your computer, you don't need to sign up for any online services, and it will easily work on any computer, not just the computer that's synched to your iPhone.

WriteRoom for the iPhone is inspired by my WriteRoom for OS X application, but functionally WriteRoom for the iPhone is more similar to the default Notes application. When you purchase WriteRoom for the iPhone you will also get a $5 off coupon that can be used when purchasing either of my Mac OS X desktop applications; WriteRoom or TaskPaper.

System Requirements:
* Compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch
* Requires iPhone 2.0 Software Update
* Wi-Fi support requires access to wireless network

Pricing and Availability:
WriteRoom.iPhone may be purchased from the iTunes App Store for $4.99 USD.
