We’ve just released a new app, Oak Outliner.
Oak is a web app for outlining your ideas in plain text. It’s free, doesn’t require an account, and I hope it will be a quick and easy place for you to think on the web. Please give it a try and let us know how it works for you.
From PixelGrinch: “The Magic Grid Theme consists of 6 themes. The only difference between them is the grid color of the background (blue, green, orange, pink, red and turquoise).
It is magic because you can change the grid color by simply adjusting the ‘Window Background Color’ within the theme settings! Now that’s MAGIC!”
Thanks PixelGrinch! Be sure to check out their site’s other WriteRoom themes!

November is National Novel Writing Month. WriteRoom is a proven full-screen distraction-free writing environment. Good match? Great match! To celebrate NaNoWriMo and help support the writers working hard on their novel, WriteRoom is on sale for the first week of November.
I’m excited to announce FoldingText 1.0!
FoldingText combines the best of what we’ve learned from WriteRoom and TaskPaper into a new tool for plain text productivity. The foundation is a plain text outliner that uses Markdown formatting. But that’s just the start. I think the movie does a good job of showing what it’s really all about, go watch it! :)
FoldingText builds on the ideas in our existing WriteRoom and TaskPaper apps, but it doesn’t replace them. (We are 4 people at Hog Bay Software now and have continued to develop WriteRoom and TaskPaper throughout FoldingText’s development. We don’t plan to stop now). My expectation is that WriteRoom will always be maintained. It provides simplest possible writing solution with no bells and whistles. Long term (year a minimum, probably longer) when FoldingText can do everything that TaskPaper can do, FoldingText is expected to replaced TaskPaper. But that’s still far enough away to be unpredictable. Another option might be that we just update TaskPaper to use FoldingText’s engine.
Anyway, exciting day for us! I hope FoldingText proves useful!
Here’s a great typewriter-inspired theme by Mike Warren. The typing sounds are from SoundJay and the background images are from Allur.
Thanks Mike! Click to download.
