“But if, when it comes right down to it, full screen is your r grail, and the ultimate antidote to the bric-a-brac of Word, then you must enter the WriteRoom, the ultimate spartan writing utopia.”

— Virginia Heffernan, NYT

“Unlike practically everything else in our digital lives, WriteRoom's minimalist interface implies a truly flattering proposition: It's you, not the software, that matters.”

— Jeffrey MacIntyre, Slate

“WriteRoom’s minimalist interface also frees you from the nagging urge to fiddle with margins, fonts, and other settings, leaving you with nothing to do but write.”

— Nathan Alderman, MacWorld

“A perfectly balanced, indispensable part of any Mac writer’s toolkit.”

— Craig Grannell, Mac Format
