Yesterday the first commercial version of Atomic Scribbler went live. The website has been updated and the beta version is no longer available for download. If you are currently running a beta version, you should download and install the current version, which has a 10 day trial, as the beta will stop working on September 30th.
Some parts of the website are incomplete — in particular, the manual has yet to be finished. I’ll be updating this over the course of the week. The site is also missing a Getting Started video, which I’m hoping to put out later in the week.
The core elements of version 1 include:
- The three part working environment of Document tree, tabbed word processor and notes sections.
- Fully functional Fragments section, where you can send your bits and pieces that might not make it into the finished manuscript.
- Import and export options, for Word documents and PageFour Notebooks.
- Automatic saving and automatic backups every time you close a project.
- And of course, a fully functional spell checker and auto-correct feature — English language only at this stage, so apologies for anyone writing in another language.
The price for version 1 is $47.
I’ll be pushing out small changes and fixes regularly over the next couple of months, and I’m hoping to have version 2 released in October. Unlike some writing products, I’ll be releasing major upgrades with new functionality regularly, rather than holding back and delivering a couple of years’ work in one go. A license comes with 12 months free upgrades, so every new release over the next year is included.
