Probably not for me, but interesting. It looks a little like Ulysses and seems to work a little like Writers Blocks - https://speare.com

One more subscription application. I’m not a fan of that marketing model, but I appreciate the need for well-funded developers.

Thanks for bringing our attention to this interesting writing app. That the writing box is at the bottom of the screen is problematic, I think. Most people prefer to look at the center of the screen. I bet they change that in the near future.

With a cloud-only app like this, subscription is really the only viable payment model, because what is there to actually own? It seems pricey to me, though. But good luck to them.

This subscription economy is a real bubble. Will not survive because soon having your own program will be a good USP for some new on the market developers. I expect a dotcom crash like rebound until 2020. 

Seriously asking $100 for a writing toy that features minimalism as it’s core value has some sort of braindead consumer society to me.

I mean, I’m already out on the grounds that it’s a subscription model, but I find their attempt at marketing amusing…I have to scroll past a stock photography model and a video of a dog before I can even see what the app looks like.

Once I get there, it does look interesting, but I’d have already clicked the back button before I even saw it were it not a recommendation from this forum.
