Checking in to report that I’m still working away on this. Been a while, taking longer then I expected, but making progress I think.
Over the last month or so I’ve got to the point where I’m no longer working on the core editor, and am instead deciding how the app will actually look and work. Rough going at first, but I think I’ve settled on a UI approach that will fit in the features that I’m trying to add while keeping the app “Distraction Free”.
I also have a quick question… I’ve implemented a parts of speech highlighter (similar to what iA Writer popularized), but now that it’s there I can’t really see that it’s very useful. I’ll probably leave it out of the app, but before I do that I wanted to here what people thought. Is there any reason to see the parts of speech highlighted in your own writing process?
I have seen some writing suggestions along the lines of “find all the adverbs and cross them out”. So I guess could be used for that, but what about a general highlight any part of speech… is that useful?
