    software for ms surface

    Discussion in 'Software' started by xtron, Aug 16, 2014.

    hey all

    just wondering if anyone on here uses a Microsoft surface for their writing if so what app do you use?
    I only just got mine up and running again so I have only got word at the moment but am thinking it could be good enough.
    anyone on here using anything different?

    cheers

    MSWord is all you need, and it works just fine on my Surface 2 Pro.

    I write on a Microsoft surface and have been using poe. It's an app that you can get on the Microsoft store, it's very minimalistic, which is what I like most about it, it has a word counter that gives you an update about how many words you've written since you last saved a total word count and even links to sites like dictionary.com. I'm liking it more than using word to write and it's free so might as well check it out. Also when you save your work it saves as a a .txt file so if you want to you can just copy and paste it into word and touch things up.
