Less is more, as Mies van der Rohe would say.
This is not only true in architecture; this is especially the case when it comes to writing.
Thus, myTexts helps you to get more meaning out of your words with less distraction.

With myTexts you focus almost automatically on writing.
You simply don’t have to care about windows, buttons or formats. Your Mac turns into a truly typewriter again.

Now, focused on writing, myTexts also takes care about your documents, files, backups and of course how to regain them. All this is done in a self-explanatory and user-friendly way. All your writings are just on click away at the left hand side and completely searchable. You can add tags for your convenience, which can be added to your Spotlight search as well.

myTexts can be customized to fit your personal needs.
Whether it comes to fonts, size, space, color or line spacing, myTexts serves only your creativity.
In times of glossy displays myTexts comes without a completely black background. Nothing would be more distracting than seeing your own face instead of your writing.

No man is an island - not even the best poet.
Since we write to be widely read and understood, myTexts is made for exchanging files with the outside world. myTexts reads and writes the most important file formats like txt, rft, doc, docx, html, schreiben, odt and xml.

I'm not impressed with the iOS versions of MyTexts, however, which I tested on both my iPad and my iPhone. At this point are still very much work in progress: all they offer is the possibility of creating texts in your dedicated MyTexts Dropbox sandbox folder, as well as opening and editing existing ones. You can’t export in another format at all. In fact, the whole MyTexts ecosystem will only work well, for this reason, for someone who is content with storing their texts in a format that no other application can use, exporting them only from their Mac desktop. At this point, this simply doesn’t make sense for my needs.

I've been a user of WriteRoom for several years now, but sad to see the file management aspects of WriteRoom killed in v2.0 and then development completely stagnated.

myTexts focuses on the WriteRoom sore spot - on file management, however doesn't have the basic Rich Text support (bold/italic/underline/color/highlight) that is often useful when organizing your thoughts.

myTexts is great! I like it so much I even created a custom icon for it :-)
