When you use an application to type or edit text, there are always distractions from other applications. Notifications and prompts from other apps divide your attention and not let you fully focus on your work. A few note-taking applications have tried to solve this problem by providing you with a blank background on top of which you can type text, minus the distractions from other applications. But most of us would prefer that blank background to be replaced with our desktop background.

If you are a Mac user, then here to offer you precisely that is a Mac app called Launch Write.

simple note taking app for the mac

Launch Write is a note-taking application for Mac users. The app’s current version is 1.0.1; it is sized at 0.5 MB and requires your computer to run Mac OS 10.6 or later. The application strives to offers you a simple typing interface while keeping things native enough for you to be comfortable with. Basically, you are given a distraction-free typing interface with your current desktop background image. The wallpaper is slightly blurred out to enhance focus on the text you type.


Such behavior clearly simulates the Launchpad and Mac users will be immensely comfortable with the simple to use interface. The minimalist application will suit all note-takers or authors requiring a distraction-free typing interface.


This simple Mac utility costs users only $1.99 from the Mac store. But the first 10 lucky commenters will get free licenses for the application.


  • A user-friendly desktop app.
  • Compatible with Mac computers.
  • Lets you type in a distraction free interface.
  • Text appears on your blurred out wallpaper.
