    "I love to play the video games and this one is about war so there is much action to be had. The name of it is the Total War: Arena and it is soo good! You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

      "This is a great solution because its simple and does exactly what it needs to do. You can open up in full screen mode which blocks all notifications which is great for having no distractions when trying to write."

      "While there is a lot to say about this editor, I really enjoy the font types specifically. It's very clean which gives the very "distraction free" feel it advertises. I've been thoroughly enjoying it."

      "Byword is a great app for a plain text editor. Not really as useful as a word processor, but it has its functions as well. It is nifty to keep notes on or to type up some code you want to test. The automatic sync function built in is very nice once you get it setup."
