What is yWriter?

yWriter is powerful novel-writing software which breaks your novel into chapters and scenes, helping you keep track of your work while leaving your mind free to create. It will not write your novel for you, suggest plot ideas or perform creative tasks of any kind. yWriter was designed by an author, not a salesman!

This is a message from the developer working on the MacOS version:

The latest version of the yWriter MacOS beta is here, use with caution. Backup your projects before opening with this beta as it could make unexpected changes since it's unstable.

Some more information regarding the future of yWriter for MacOS -

The Xamarin.Mac platform which this app originally was built in is being depreciated by Microsoft, and not transferrable to MAUI.

To keep the app alive I plan to expand the Android/iOS version of yWriter to support Mac, instead of updating the old MacOS version.

I plan to add features to this 'mobile' version of yWriter until it's almost equivalent to the Windows version.

This is already underway and a new beta may become available soon.

I'll post on the yWriter website or forum with updates as they come.
