    Wow, their only purpose for making that app is to ride on the success of iA Writer.

    It’s sad that people can’t be original, but as a user of iAWriter, I must say that if this clone fixes some of the pigheaded decisions made by the designer, I will actually buy it.  

    Also, what they are copying is hardly anything that can really be protected either by copyright, patent, or trademark.  I don’t think iAWriter would have a case for it’s removal. 

    The big problem with iAWriter (IMO of course) is how they completely over-ride the normal touch screen writing controls and put their own in place instead.  This is very difficult customisation to do, so it’s likely that the clone won’t have copied that part.  
    If so, to me, this is a version of iAWriter without the obvious flaws and therefore well worth the two bucks.
