    O.K., I wouldn’t normally give a new app with some desireable features missing five starts. But in this case, the app addresses something that I’ve wanted for so long - a simple easy-to-use work processor that I can SEE - that I’ll give it a pass and hope that the features I want get added. I’m visually-handicapped, and the trend towards bloated apps with hard-to-see icons and faint text gives me nothing but trouble, Some of them, like Pages, have become so confusing that I’ve switched to using a text editor. What I really wanted was a simple word-processing app that let me WRITE. If I want page layout, I’ll use page layout software. Along come Wrise. Within a couple of minutes, I was flying along. The option to read as I type is a godsend, and the interface is clean and readable. There are enough features to do word processing, and that’s what I want. I’d love for some more export options, and an easy way to reverse the text colors (I can see white on black better), but right now I’m not complanining. for a newly-released piece of software to address 90% of what I need on the first try is amazing in my book. Plus, at the current price, it’s well worth-it.
