Do you spend a lot of time writing on your PC? For many people, Microsoft Word is the default application for writing text, but it has many more features than most people need. Focus Writer is a lightweight basic text writer, designed to be free of the distractions of complex word processing applications. In fullscreen mode, there are no toolbars of windows, just a background and your text - so it can help people writing who need to concentrate

Focus Writer can be windowed or full screen, and the ribbon of buttons at the top appears when you mouse over the area. Its basic features include a find tool - you can search for a word in your text and replace it. The themes button allows you to create custom themes, with your own background, font and so on. In preferences you can turn on auto save and also set goals for the day - by time or number of words, useful for professional writers. Rolling the cursor over the bottom of the window brings up another ribbon, with basic file information - title, word count, percentage of daily goal and the time.

If you need complex formatting, or to add images or tables to your work, this in not the right kind of application Focus Writer is solely for text, and nothing else which may suit writers, but will probably be too limited for many people. It doesn't feature a spell checker, either. Despite this, if you need a distraction free writing program, Focus Writer works very well, and its customization tools are really good.

Focus Writer will helps to create a quiet atmosphere on your computer, perfect for writing without distractions.
