Grandview Offers Multiple Ways To Write Without Distractions On Your Mac

Mac: There are always so many distractions on your computer, and none of them make it easy to write. Like many distraction-free writing apps, Grandview takes over the entire screen to block them all out. The difference is that in addition to being able to see all the text you write, it can also show you one word at a time

This idea is to simply write and not worry about what you have already typed. It feels awkward at first, but you'll start to see the appeal after using it for a little while. If you have a tendency to edit while you write, you'll find this feature very useful because it will prevent you from stopping in the middle of a sentence and going back to change something. When you finish a sentence, you'll get a chance to look at it and make sure there are no typos. Hitting the space bar puts you back into single-word mode so you can keep writing without distractions.

If you don't like this idea and just want a free full-screen, distraction-free writing app, Grandview can do that as well. You can also use both features together, toggling out of single-word mode to see your entire document at any time. When you're finished, you can copy the text you've written and move it into any other app. Alternatively, you can open text files and work on those directly in Grandview.

    Hey guys, it's not actually free.. it's $1.99 =)

    You've linked the wrong app. Grandview is

    Looks a lot like iA Writer

    And the lack of context leads to mistakes like "let's". So there's that.

    $1.99 for an app to fill the missing self-discipline.

    I have a small bunch of these "distraction free" text programs for Mac, and they are nice and good at what they do. But it raises the broader question regarding Mac users and A.D.D.

    What is it about Mac users that has necessitated the need for these multitude of distraction free writing apps... do we get THAT easily distracted by shiny things that we.... hey golet's ride bikes... !!!
