Old Competition Post

This week we have a superb competition for you – 10 (count em’) promo codes for Writing Kit are up for grabs! We reviewed Writing Kit back in August and found it to be a truly impressive writing app.

While it maintains the simplicity of a focused writing app, it includes the features to take your writing beyond basic text.

We gave it a strong 8/10, I’m sure you’ll love it – read on to find out how to enter!


Many consider the iPad to be a content-consumption device, with little to no possibility of creating something with the large screen and limited hardware capabilities. I’d like to say that, with all fairness, those people are out of their minds! The iPad makes it easy to do many things, and can replace laptops for a fair number of people.

Aside from the computer-illiterate, the iPad may be best for writers. How can you turn your iPad into the ultimate writing machine? Read on to find out.


The iPad has inspired a whole generation of focused writing apps. The included Notes app is a nice way to jot down quick notes, while Pages gives you most of the features of Word or Pages on a Mac, right on your iPad. Then, apps like iA Writer: An Astonishingly Simple Way to Write | iPad.AppStorm and Simplenote give you a focused, distraction free environment to write in plain text.

There’s still two things that aren’t very convenient in most writing apps: researching info and writing formatted text or HTML. Writing Kit is a new app that excels at both of these. With an included browser and research pane, you can lookup the definition of a word or copy text from a website without having to switch back to a browser. You can also quickly write Markdown formatted text, then save it in a variety of formats or export as HTML. Let’s take a closer look at what it has to offer.
