Poe is a distraction-free writing suite, created by a writer for writers.
Poe was one of the first distraction-free writing apps on the Windows Store, launching way back in 2012. What started out as a barebones writing app became a more fully featured suite of writing tools, always maintaining a focus on simplicity, clarity and usability.
The developer uses Poe himself every day. He enjoys writing, coding and talking about himself in the third person.
Poe is of course named for American author Edgar Allan Poe, and the icon/logo is inspired by his famous poem "The Raven"
