Super Note Card (remember this old one, which used to be called Miss Lonely Notes at one time) is now an online app. I haven’t used it, but it seems to offer a lot more power than Novlr and they charge just $25 a year. SNC isn’t as “elegant” looking as Novlr, but it already has a lot of the features that are just on the “pipeline” for Novlr. And I suspect SNC is not exactly brimming with users—based on the fact that the most recent entry on the user forum is 46 days old.

Like I said earlier, I do wish the developers luck. But I think they’re going to have a tough row to hoe.

I did a quick overview of online writing apps—very quick and superficial. I was not overly impressed. The one that most impressed me is called Shaxpir (pronounced Shakespeare), although they say it is a cloud-based desktop app, so I’m not sure it really qualifies. Anyway, its subscription is $8 a month. Not cheap, but cheaper than Novlr, and it appears a lot more sophisticated, closer to Scrivener.

There’s a demo video: https://youtu.be/IFG8fpYkDxA

Wow, this one actually looks impressive. Although the video is more focused on fiction writing, I can clearly see how the features would be useful for non-fiction.

But of course, it’s $8 per month while Scrivener, which gets the job done well for me, was a one-time purchase.

Interesting what Dr Andus says about Chromebook users. There does appear to be a kind of “divergence” going on - the opposite of the tech pundits’ enthusiastically embraced convergence. And the invasion of educational institutions by Chromebooks suggests it’s a genuinely powerful trend. I suppose that’s backed up by the number of folks who use their smartphones as “work” computers - a much larger percentage of users than I ever realised.
