Thank you for your feedback. I’m sorry that the text in
this image gave you this impression. I’ll update it with a
more accurate description in the future.
Unfortunately not including Focus Mode was a little more than
not bothering to ;-) Currently there is no space for an additional
icon in Writer for iPhone’s menu bar, so extra work is needed
to implement a custom interface. To be honest we didn’t think
using an external keyboard with Writer for iPhone was going to be a
major use case. Because it affects a small number of users and
requires some work, it’s not high on our priority list at
present. We hope to implement this in the future though, so in the
meantime all I can do is apologise and ask for your patience.
I look forward to the implementation of this feature.
I may be in the minority but if you look at the attached image,
can you you think of a more minimal, distraction free writing
Considering your website contains the following sentence: "The
only options you have are Full Screen and Focus Mode." I can only
assume you had certainly intended to include this feature on the
iOS app, to be on a par with the desktop version.
That photo is awesome :D I’m sorry about that sentence
being inaccurate — the screenshots were made using an earlier
version of the “About Writer” document from before
Writer for iPhone’s release. You can use Focus Mode in Writer
for iPad, but the issues I mentioned meant it has been delayed on
the iPhone. I’ll pass on your enthusiasm for it to the
developers — here’s hoping it won’t be too far
I am currently writing this comment via a bluetooth keyboard
teathered to my iPhone. I too would really like to see focus mode
on the iphone/ipod version of the app. Maybe you can create this
option to be activated on the iphone only? Just a suggestion...
