New web app features

Let's face it - it has been a while since I showed the My Writing Spot web app some love. I've been busy with the very popular apps for iPhone and iPad, and with porting the app so that it is available on Android devices such as the Kindle Fire and the Nook. All through this, the web app has remained fast and stable, even though it now supports thousands of users daily.

Well, I'm pleased to say that I have taken some time over the past few weeks to add a few nice new features to the My Writing Spot web app. There's nothing earth-shattering here, but these are some things that you've asked for, and that should make the web app that much more useful to us all.

  • There is a new Download All button in the toolbar. Clicking on this button will bundle up all your documents into a ZIP-compressed file, and download that ZIP file to your local computer. There is still the option to download a single document, but the Download All feature makes backing up your work to your local computer a snap. Or should I say a click?
  • The Email Document feature now emails your document as an attachment instead of as the body of the email. The document is attached as a plain text file, which should be able to be opened by most any word processor or text editor in existence.
  • The web app now supports longer document names. Document names can now be up to 40 characters.
  • There are a few super-secret background features that have been added to support some coming features in the mobile apps. I can't say much about them now, but watch for updated mobile apps in the coming weeks.
Please keep your feedback coming in. Your comments and suggestions help to shape the future of My Writing Spot. Thanks for your support in making My Writing Spot the best writing app available.

  1. Looks like this is a dead product now. Too bad, it had a lot of promise.

  2. My man! I LOVE this app! I RELY on this app on a daily basis! But now, with the new update on my iphone, it crashes every time I open a document that is more than a couple hundred words long. Any idea what that might be about? I've gone a couple days now without being able to write because I can't open my docs. WITHDRAWLS!
