The Mac App Store has spawned a whole generation of distraction free writing tools that help us to focus on the task at hand, sans distractions. Yet, one of those distractions has its own distraction free writing tool.
The whole idea behind distraction free writing is to have a minimalist word processor that takes over the whole screen so you can focus on writing.
That focus means all the distractions of a modern Mac users life are hidden. Facebook, Twitter, Mail, et al, are out of site.
Imagine my surprise when I found Wren. It’s a Mac app that lets you tweet to your heart’s content within an interesting visual framework.
Wren is, in essence, a blend of a minimalist word processor with a Twitter app. It manages multiple Twitter accounts, and lets you post photos to Twitter, and schedule tweets for later delivery.
Wren’s interface is mostly minimalist but can go fullscreen mode with a click.
Nice looking, and minimalist, right?
You can tweet using Wren and not worry about being distracted by your Twitter account timeline.
And, speaking of the twitter account, Wren handles multiple accounts with ease, and makes it easy to switch between each.
You can also write out a tweet, save it as a draft, or have it scheduled to be delivered later.
Wren features built-in link shortening, username autocomplete, and global keyboard shortcuts (for everything) so the app is never more than a click or three away. And, Wren displays the last tweet so you’ll know quickly what you tweeted and when.
This one is well done, not exactly expensive (still needs a trial version or a lite version), and useful for Mac users who tweet via multiple Twitter accounts.
