iPhone App Review: EasyWriter

Sometimes the more basic an iPhone app is, the better it is. There are plenty of things missing on the iPhone that have consumers up in arms, and luckily as time goes by we find more and more apps to help fill those voids.

One such example is EasyWriter. This particular application enables users to type emails in landscape mode instead of portrait mode. This is important to many people because of the small size of the iPhone’s keyboard. By changing the keyboard to landscape mode, the keys get larger and the space between each key widens.

When a user launches EasyWriter, they are brought into a blank screen with a touch keyboard that moves to landscape mode. After typing the email like normal, simply press the “send to mail” button in the top right corner and it pastes the entire message into a regular email form. Choose the intended recipient and send it off.

iPhone email in landscape mode

Such a simple concept, yet it fills a need for many iPhone users. If you find yourself getting frustrated when sending emails, I definitely recommend downloading it. EasyWriter is available in the App Store for free.

    FYI, last night Apple approved version 2.0 of EasyWriter Pro, which includes two new features:

    1) A spell checker that is as powerful as any desktop spell checker, but fits in the iPhone UI.

    2) Blackberry-style AutoText so you can type something short (like “sig”) and have it automatically replaced by a longer text clipping.

    Because of these additions, the price was increased to $2.99. More info is at http://www.saxorama.net or of course in the iTunes store.

    Unless this was approved by Bill Baker, original owner of the name EasyWriter, the author or publisher considered possible litigation ramifications?

    I wrote the Original EasyWriter for the Apple II until Bill Baker took the trademark.
