Our quest for the ultimate writing tool continues with Bean a stripped down and superfast word processor.
It lacks a full word processor’s more advanced features, but Bean handles all the same files as TextEdit in an interface that’s easy to understand and looks great. It’ll even export PDFs.
Bean’s selection tools are a revelation, with options for choosing by font style, ruler and even colour, making it easy to handle large documents. With features such as live word count, autosave and page layout mode you won’t feel deprived.
We’ve found ourselves using Google Docs a lot lately. Bean gives you the same simplicity, power and lack of clutter at the same price: nothing.
