Thanks for the heads up. I just logged in but did not get the pop up, and the Upgrade Account link leads to the usual 9/79 offering. So either the 500 users were reached, or it is a random offering.

I encourage others to try it nonetheless, you never know.

I’m inclined to think that it’s not a random offering. If you signed up soon after this thread was started (30 Aug 2013), then there might be a chance that you’re included in the first 500.

But I agree that this is a pretty good deal.

A writing prof’s take on Gingko (on the ProfHacker blog at The Chronicle of Higher Education), with a screenshot pinched from yours truly ;)

Looks like they did lower the price in the end: $4.99 / month or $39 / year.

And a correction: Gingko does have collaborative features (I missed that the first time round).

Some noteworthy recent features in Gingko:

- export as .docx;
- export column 1, 2, or 3 only;
- export a horizontal branch only (Current card and subcards);
- blank cards can now be created (allowing one e.g. to set up the frame of an entire piece of writing, where each card represents a paragraph etc.);
- ALT+arrow shortcut to create a new card in edit mode, without having to exit edit mode of current card first.
- HTML support (such as for highlighting, tables, custom CSS, Javascript).
