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 WORDCOUNT TOOLS =============== See at a glance how many words are in your document, or how many you've written since you opened the app. WORDCOUNT GOAL ============== 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 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. Writers know it's all too easy to get caught up in the story and lose track of time. AUTOSAVE ======== Improved autosave features mean you 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 powercuts, battery rundown, windows 8 suspending the app in the background or even a system crash. You can now also change how often poe autosaves. CUSTOM THEMES ============= Poe comes with three preset themes: Dark, Grey, and Light. Don't like them? No problem. You can choose your own background and text-color, font face and size, line-spacing and editor width. WRITERS RESOURCES ================= Poe has a list of handy writing resources which can be accessed from within the app. If your default browser is IE, these links open side by side with Poe, meaning you don't even have to leave the app to look up a word in the dictionary or find a different word in a thesaurus. AND MORE ======== Poe also comes with optional autocorrect, inline spellcheck
