UX Writer (feature rich word processor) 24.99-> for 5 days (supposedly)




Despite having ipad in the title, this app is, I believe, universal. I haven't tried it for long, but this is a pretty robust word/text editor. About as close as you'll get to an office suite word processor on your ipad/iphone. Supports HTML5, pdf-creation, etc. no ads or iaps.

I don't know their history, but UX was, I believe, a powerful PC text editor back in the day. If this is by the same people it will be an extremely powerful, and well written program.

I must have missed the boat here as it seems to have closed, but thanks for info.

Yes. It seems that the sale is over. It was definitely free for some hours here in Austrian App Store.

They deleted this part from the app description text:

Quote:
Since there are multiple "developers" currently selling pirated copies of UX Write on the app store, we've decided to undercut them and run a five-day special where you can get the app for free. Normally $24.99, you can now get the *genuine* version of UX Write for even less than the bootleg copies! Offer ends 10th June.

I asked via email if this is an error or intention and dev (Dr. Peter M. K.) answered:

It was intentional. Due to unprecedented demand and some other issues we unfortunately had to cancel the promotion. We'll be exploring other ways of trying to get the piracy issue addressed, which was the primary intention.

Sorry about the confusion.
