This is going to be quick, this time. I’ve made a lot of progress since the last update in September. There is still a fair amount to be done but the list is shrinking.
November is a couple of weeks away. Things are going to get crazy busy. It’s another year for NaNoWriMo for me and another chance to stress test the app under realistic writing conditions. Between that and my job I won’t have much time to work on the app in November.
I plan on pulling the old version off the App Store a month prior to the release of Auteureist 3. The main reason for this is that the new version isn’t compatible with the old and I don’t want people to get confused thinking they can just upgrade. You’ll have to export anything you want to keep in the old version prior to moving to version 3.
I have been using version 3 on a daily basis now for a while. It has little, if any, of the confusion of the earlier releases. It still more complete than any other writing app on iOS, and I truly believe version 3 brings more to make Auteureist better.
I’m going to leave you with a paraphrase of a Woody Allen quote, make of it what you will.
“Writing, I think, is like a shark, you know? It has to constantly move forward or it dies. And I think what we got on our hands is an app that moves your writing forward.”
