That doesn’t seem to be the case, though I’m very impressed with some of the more elegant and useful writing tools. Here’s one I like and use because it’s ubiquitous– a mini word processor that works almost everywhere. Mac, iOS, Android, and Kindle. Simplenote is minimalist writing at its best but doesn’t do Windows. Go figure.
I’m not sure that Simplenote qualifies as a mini word processor, but it’s perfect for almost any kind of note taking, snippet making or small writing project you have in mind.
The real benefit here is that Simplenote is drop dead simple to use. There’s no toolbar and almost no learning curve. Notes are stored in the cloud and synchronized between devices. Everything you write is saved and backed up.
Simplenote counts words and characters in each document. A Simplenote document also lets you search for other files, and displays recent files in a lefthand sidebar. This is also a good app to use to collaborate and share notes with others. I don’t recall using a Mac writing tool that’s this simple, hence the name. I use it to capture notes and ideas on my iPhone and iPad so I can sit down and flesh out the notes on my Mac.
I’m surprised there’s not a Windows version, though.
