typWrittr is a free online text editor that comes with beautiful background themes. With each background theme, it provides a beautiful wallpaper that makes writing the text more interesting. You can also add any desired online image URL as wallpaper for some of its themes. For every theme, it auto sets font color, size, text highlight color, etc. But you can customize preferences. You will be able to change text color, paper color (in which text is written), paper line height, paper shadow, editor width to display text, etc.
typWrittr lets you save your text online, therefore you can access your saved files from anywhere. It’s an interesting cloud text editor, but I hope they add some more features, like, it should let users insert images in text, add a spell checker, and most importantly, should let users download the text as a file to PC. But, like, many other similar minimal online text editors, it provides just basic features, with additional option of some very nice themes.
In above screenshot, you can see my sample text on its interface, with selected background theme. This might give you an idea why writing text with this online text editor is quite interesting. From writers to common users, this is a useful text editor that serve its purpose of writing text online quite well.

Some of the interesting themes are: Twilight Forest, Spaceship, Calm Evening, Alien Structures, Road Through Forest, Hazy Lake, Evil Citadel, Rainy window and book, etc.
You can click on Settings button available in editor and choose any background theme (known as Inspiration) using drop down menu.
