Creating Professional Documents Made Easier

UX Write was developed initially for the iPad by an Australian technology company. It was eventually redesigned to allow iPhone and Touch compatibility. It now offers an optimized display suitable for all mobile devices.

The app offers two available versions: Basic and Professional. The basic version is free and can function as a standalone word processor with key editing features including HTML and MS Word support and cloud integration. The Pro version offers more advanced editing tools such as customizable Styles and PDF support.

When you open UX Write’s home screen, you will immediately see the file locations menu. It allows you to open saved files from your device or to download documents saved in the cloud.

You can create a new document by tapping the ‘plus’ icon. It opens the main editor where you can type and format your texts. You can also open existing files with html and doc extensions and edit them just like in Microsoft Word.

The app saves files in HTML which means your documents can be printed from, and are viewable in any, web browsers and other word processors. To save documents in the cloud, you need to link UX Write with your cloud storage account. Once linked, the sync process happens automatically so you don’t need to download and upload every time you create documents.
