Since the day the iPad was released I have been and will remain a skeptic, but as more amazing companies and developers come out with such astoundingly rad apps and products for the iPad the more difficult it becomes to not breakdown get my own. I have always felt that typography is the most commonly neglected portion of UX, and the fact that the type and idea of type is so present in iA’s development and intentions for this app makes me very happy. Sadly as I don’t have an iPad myself I am going to have to wait to test-drive the app until I run into a friend willing to buy it. Despite that the article on their website really allows you to grasp how fully integrated and enriching Writer is for the iPad. The auto syncing with Dropbox is also another personal favorite of mine, and something I would love to see in action.
I guess the only thing I could find any information on was what types of file formats can the writer save to as well as open and edit. I would be curious how much format wrangling they have done to make Microsoft Word documents and stuff like that accessible in the app.
I am unsure of the number of times I wrote the word app in the past two paragraphs, but I do know it was most likely excessive. To read a more elagant and detailed description of the writer check it out here.
