Even back in ancient times, there was always a sacred awe and reverence for writing. In Ancient Egypt, writing and literacy was believed to have been a gift from Thoth.
You could write to immortalize yourself or your experiences. You could write to express your views or rebel against society. You could write for the sake of escapism, or shameless indulgence in high fantasies. The reasons for why we write are never ending.
The meaning of writing and why we write, remains unchanged.
However, how we write certainly has.
From reed and papyrus, to pen to keyboard, to now our smartphones, our way of writing has evolved. We need a better way of writing.
Rethinking the New Age of Writing
Writing on portable devices like smart phones and tablets can be very convenient. However, editing and formatting your work on smaller devices can get annoying.
A Fluid Writing Process
We need better optimisation for writing on touchscreen devices. Interfaces that are intuitive and spare us from the pains of touchscreen editing. Less awkward fumbling and cursing as we edit our work on mobile devices.
Given the ubiquitousness of the internet, portable devices and online Cloud, our ideas and writing flow need not be hindered.
Professional formats such as Markdown and Fountain, are inaccessible on iPhone and other iOS devices. Our novels, screenplays and essays cannot be taken everywhere with us and written on the go.
It's hard to write wherever and whenever inspiration strikes.
What we need is the ability to write as well as we would on our desktops, from the convenience of portable devices.
A Streamlined Writing Process
Convert Markdown and Fountain syntax instantly into rich text with zero fuss, regardless of whether you're on your iPhone, Mac, or iPad.
Ideally, if we desire to write a full-length, professionally drafted out novel in a cafe from our iPad, we ought to be able to do so if we damn well pleased.
It doesn't make sense that we can't edit directly in open formats.
