It synchronizes with the SimpleNote online service, which means you can access your notes on your Mac, iPhone, online, and, if you store your notes in a folder that is in your Dropbox account, on a plethora of iOS plain text editing applications. It's made for speed, letting you find what you need instantly, make...

After the Deadline grammar, spell check addon for Firefox is a writer's best friend

After the Deadline has been mentioned before here on Download Squad. In September of 2009, Automattic (the company behind WordPress) acquired ATD and promptly integrated it into their wildly popular blogging platform. If you do any writing anywhere on the web and you're using Firefox, you'll be glad to know that the After the Deadline add-on has hit version 1.0 and should be shedding Mozilla's...

Zoho is always up to something. The company that seems like it never stops to breath has released another update to their Zoho suite, Start. The Start beta is a not another Zoho application, it is merely an integrated Start page for all of your other Zoho applications. Think of it as a desktop for all things Zoho.

Writer - Dark Room / WriteRoom for the web

First there was WriteRoom, which gave Mac users a very simple black interface in which to write. No distractions, just a black screen with glowing green letters, which probably appeals particularly to people that have been working with computers long enough to remember monochromatic terminals. And it was a very cool idea, but there was nothing similar for Windows. Until Dark Room came along. Dark...

WriteToMyBlog web-based post editor

A new blog-writing service, with full-featured web-based html editor called WriteToMyBlog is floating in the ether this morning, found by LifeHacker. I tried it out, and it does have a a lot of editing features, but I was a little disappointed by the lack of clear UI when setting a blog. It didn't seem to work with my blogs. The other thing I wish for in this app is the ability to save drafts...

Windows Live Writer: A blogging app from Microsoft?

Microsoft has released a beta version of Windows Live Writer, a new desktop-based blogging tool. Despite Windows Live Spaces, I never really expected Microsoft to release a blogging tool, especially a general-purpose one, but it has. And I've got to say, for Microsoft, I'm impressed. I encountered a few of the same issues that Paul Kedrosky did: Writer forced me to use a wizard to set up my blog,...

Dark Room: WriteRoom for Windows

On Friday I linked to a little app for OS X called WriteRoom, which is a minimalist word processor for writers. A few of the commenters didn't quite "get" it (sorry, folks, but maximizing Word and changing the colors isn't remotely equivalent to a distraction-free writing environment*), but a lot of writers certainly do, including one developer who missed it so much when he had to use Windows that...
