Thanks for the recommendations, Stephen. I had come across these apps before through this forum. Speare seems to be the most attractive to me except it has the input window for text is at the bottom of the screen. This is just too jarring for me to use Speare. This point was I believe also discussed in this forum. It would be good if the developers could let the user choose the positioning for inputting text. I have as yet heard nothing from the developers of Novellus, so my search for an alternative continues.
