WriteMate, The New Typing Style. And It’s FREE!!

Do you have more than one iOS devices? Got both iPhone and iPad? Perfect! This app will transform your iPhone/iPod Touch into an external bluetooth keyboard for typing on your Write 2 app.

A new study says typing is actually the most common frustration among tablet users. Yes, sometimes you maybe feel awkward when typing on an iPad because of some problems, such as too big portrait keyboard for thumb-typing, too small landscape keyboard for ten-finger typing, useful keys and punctuation marks that are hard to be reached, and so on. For you who type on iPhone/iPod Touch, sometimes you need extended keys to access more typing functions quickly. These are why some of you need external bluetooth keyboards.

WriteMate is unique because it is not only able to replace those pricey accessories, but also become an extended keyboard for the iPad or iPhone. Now you can type comfortably while doing text entry to Write 2 on their iPad, reach the useful keys and punctuation marks directly, and do some cool typing styles.

What do you mean by “Full Screen writing”?

Full screen writing means the writing area occupy the screen entirely. In other words, more visible space for you to write. This gives Write a sleek, simple, distraction free writing environment.

As an example, here is the default Notes app compared with Write.

In portrait orientation, Write gives 27% more writing area compared to other non-fullscreen note apps, and in landscape the number goes up to 38%!

How Do Write Protect My Personal Notes?

Sometimes, what we write reflects our very personal thoughts, and we want to keep those personal thoughts private. Write app understands this, and provide two types of protection.

1. Built-in PIN protection

How this works?

First, you need to set a PIN. Open Write, and tap the on lower toolbar. Turn the PIN Protection to ON, and type your (secret) PIN twice, and tap OK.

If there’s something wrong with your PIN (e.g. you type two different PIN numbers or not exactly four digits) the PIN protection will be turned off.

Now Write will ask for this PIN every time you open the app.

PS: Use PIN for basic protection only. We can not guarantee that your writings can be 100% safe.

2. Emergency PIN

In case you’re under duress, forced to reveal your PIN, and can’t get out from the situation, just use the Emergency PIN to open a safe, temporary session complete with fake entries. Your notes won’t be displayed.

For the original Write app you can find your Emergency PIN in the welcome notes inside the app. For Write 2 the Emergency PIN is in the help menu inside the app.
