POE is a distraction free writing app built for writers. It was the first distraction free writing app in the windows store, launching way back in 2012. The minimalist interface hides a number of powerful writing features RICH TEXT, IN AN OPEN FORMAT The Poe editor supports bold, italics, strikethrough, lists, headers and more. It saves everything as markdown, in a universally accessible .md or .txt file that any other app can open. WRITING STATS See at a glance how many words, sentences, and characters are in your document, or how many you've written since you opened the app WORDCOUNT GOALS Set yourself a target - for example, 500 words - and Poe will let you know when you've reached that goal with a non-intrusive toast notification, or an on-screen progress bar. WRITING TIMER Got a limited amount of time to write? Set yourself an alarm to let you know when it's time to stop writing. AUTOSAVE Never lose work. Poe saves right back to the file you opened. It also keeps any unsaved work in temp files. If you close the app and forget to save, Poe resurrects your work and prompts you to save it this time. This also protects against unexpected events like power loss. You can now also change how often Poe autosaves. CUSTOM THEMES Poe comes with lots of preset themes, but you can also change the colors, fonts, text-size and spacing to whatever you prefer. WRITERS RESOURCES Poe has a list of handy writing resources which can be accessed from within the app. AND MORE Poe also comes with optional autocorrect, inline spellcheck
