I have a text app problem. I’ll admit it. I own super powerful text apps like Scrivener and Ulysses as well as streamlined simple ones like Byword and NValt.
Incredibly, I use them all, albeit some more than others.
That said, I’ve been looking for light weight clean writing app to craft my daily writing work.
I work in social media and community engagement. I need to post in social media and in email, sometimes super quick, sometimes in depth responses to a myriad of queries.
Any platform that I engage with has let me down, meaning that if I start crafting an in depth answer in FB groups or PMs or even Twitter DMs, a page has refreshed randomly, one my girls bumps my elbow and I exit the screen, the site/app crashes, etc.
Work lost. Drives me bananas!
My workflow is to craft any and all my responses outside of the platform that they will eventually be shared in. I’ve been using Byword for that, as a sort of scratchpad, because I generally I delete the file itself, as I don’t want to keep all my little “notes.”
And now Bear has come into my life, just YESTERDAY as a matter of fact, and I’m giddy with excitement! You guys. LOVE.
More to come on Bear. Maybe I’ll share workflow and feature specifics if you wanna hear them! Reply and let me know. I don’t wanna get into it if no one is as geeky as I am 😜
