Distractions can slow down the work flow tremendously. That’s true for almost every profession. Crea Writer is an application for the Windows operating system that provides writers with a minimalistic distraction free interface so that they can solely concentrate on the writing task.
Crea Writer launches as a full screen application that can either display a selected background image or a white background. Users who donate can change the background colors and other settings of the program (for instance reversing the colors to a black background and white text color).
The controls are not shown in full screen mode unless the mouse is moved to either side of the screen. All controls are then displayed in a left and right sidebar with the left bar containing text formatting controls and the right file operations and options.
The standard version is limited compared to the version that users get when they donate. It for instance lacks hotkeys, auto saves, some text formatting controls, the break timer or the configurable display colors.
The background image can either be disabled, set to be transparent or exchanged with another image. The text component is not nearly as complex as that offered by Word or other word processors. It lacks some features that one would expect from text editors like the ability to create chapters or to include images.
It should be sufficient for users who only want to write text in a minimalistic distraction free environment. But then again, using Notepad in full screen mode has nearly the same effect.
Crea Writer can be downloaded from the developer’s website. It works with most Windows operating systems.
