Imagine is a clean, easy-to-use text editor. The interface is simply elegant. It’s just a text editor and it falls somewhere in between Text Edit and Pages in functionality. I really like the look of the app. The text looks very similar to a book layout and since I do a lot writing for my novel, that’s something I’m looking for. It can expand the view to full screen and doesn’t throw a lot of bells and whistles at you when you are simply trying to write. Imagine also works with Dictation and has is built to work with Mac OS.
I am highly impressed with this app not because it is a clean interface, but because it was built by a 17-year old, high school senior. Benjiman Chan, also known as Vervious, builds apps for Mac for fun. He also designs web applications and themes to, “make the world a more colorful place.” I will be taking a look at his other desktop app, Noteworthy for Mac in my next review. Until then, I suggest checking out Imagine and see what you can come up with.
Imagine for Mac is free to download and available in the Mac App Store.
