    "This is a great solution because its simple and does exactly what it needs to do. You can open up in full screen mode which blocks all notifications which is great for having no distractions when trying to write."

    "I like FocusWriter because it does not get in the way of my work. I can have it hidden away and yet just by moving my mouse to its edge it is ready to use. This being available for Linux, Windows and Mac makes it easier to use in various environments."

    "Byword is a great app for a plain text editor. Not really as useful as a word processor, but it has its functions as well. It is nifty to keep notes on or to type up some code you want to test. The automatic sync function built in is very nice once you get it setup."
