It’s been a long way since the moment we started our journey to bring something new into the world of text editors, and now we are proud to announce that starting from today (finally!) Write! 1.0 is available for download via our Early Adopter Program.
In Write! 1.0 we’ve integrated Cloud support, Dark UI Theme, Writing Sessions, Preset Text Styles, and much more. In order to participate, just sign up here and download the 1.0 version of Write! (not necessarily in that order). Once you fire it up, you will be asked to login using your newly created account. Participating in EAP doesn’t require any payment info from you. The subscription will be free for at least 3 months (till November 5, 2015), then $4.99/month. Write! and all of its someday-to-become-commercial features will remain free at least until we implement a way for users to bulk-export their content off the cloud, which is expected to happen in about 3 months (given we have to do bug-fixing and minor features too).
The current version of Write! (aka Beta 8.5) will be rebranded as Write! Lite once EAP ends and bugs are squashed. It will remain free forever with all the present functionality.
What happens next is actually even more exciting! There is a huuuge (like, really) To-Do list that covers pretty much all of the UserVoice feedback and requests, and includes some awesomeness that just can’t be found in any other writing apps right now. Having own cloud platform will enable us to do amazing things in terms of collaborative writing, reviews, various writing assistance tools, powered by machine learning, publishing, asset management and more. And, as per our core values, these features will be packaged in a clutter-free super-responsive desktop app written in C++ and running on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Finally, we would like to thank each and every one of you for taking an active part in improving Write!. Your suggestions are much appreciated and indeed help us steer the development to the right direction, so feel free to leave us comments in UserVoice
