So you’re one of those people for whom aesthetics is above everything but paying for minimalist apps is just too much? I’ve got your back. Here’s the list of cute and simple apps/websites/extensions for your writing pleasure.
A website that gives you a distraction-free space to fully emerge into your writing. Allows two background modes: black and white. Beautiful font and minimalistic editing (insert a link, bold, italize and create a quote). Has a nice unique feature to set a target word count.
An app with lovely polished look and minimalistic editing features. Allows to create several documents, a word count included.
A beautiful customizable Chrome app with nice design. In addition to all basic features it shows you an approximate reading time.
4. Writed (Mac)
Another simple and cute looking app, nothing fancy, but everything you need for distract-less writing.
A very simple website with not much customization because it already looks pretty. Word and characters count included.
6. Quiet Writer
The only free Chrome extension I could find that allows you to have more than just solid color as your background with several nice and calming gradients to type over. Also a relatively wide range of fonts to choose from.
Hope you found something for yourself!
