Ommwriter, A Minimal Writing Environment

October 28, 2016

Freelancing is tough. You're always playing catch up and have deadlines to meet. There are so many apps to make the process easier and more efficient and Ommwriter is one of them.

Ommwriter comes from Barcelona-based creative agency herraizsoto&co. From their love of writing, the app "emerged as an internal tool to help transport us away from the humdrum noise". The visual backgrounds and music include a carefully selected set of images and photographs. There's also the cool typewriter noise that comes with keystrokes.

You can download Ommwriter on their website.
