Nice.

Interesting—clicking “Buy License” from the help menu takes us to page with “Pay $90”.

Let’s assume that’s just a placeholder since $90 would be a bit steep for a text processor.

I dunno; while I think $90 is a bit steep, I’d be prepared to pay pretty good money for a desktop version of Gingko that had the full range of functions of the online version. It’s one of the most brilliant writing concepts I’ve ever seen.

Normally I’m the first one to complain about the price of something, but yes, this might be ok for a one time payment for the full app without monthly fees. I did manage to get into the beta, and while the last version I was given access to was still too buggy for production use, it IS a really solid desktop app, despite still being an Electron app. Very impressive and I’d definitely be willing to pay $50 on release, though $90 is not out of the question for what it is.
