Inspire 2.22

Hey y’all!

Didn’t expect to see us just a day after the previous release, huh? Just kidding, you might have already gotten used to our frequency in launching updated versions of Inspire. Well, we sure hope you do! 🙂

We just released Inspire 2.22, adding the German language interface. Update it directly from the app or download it from here if you haven’t already.

We couldn’t say thank you enough to Peter Nathschläger who has helped us with the localization and translation with amazingly awesome efficiency and quality.

Peter is actually more committed than localizing the interface for Inspire: He also offered to translate the introduction sheets on the app. And with his devotion and efficiency, you can expect to see the German version of the welcoming message real soon.

See you soon! 🙂

Inspire 2.21

Hey old friends, so happy to see you again! Wish you a lovely week ahead!

We’ve worked hard on the latest version of Inspire, 2.21. To be honest, it took us more time than planned, but we managed to nail it, well, almost. 😉😉

We understand that it’s not yet the perfect version, but we’re working to make it better and better.

Update Inspire directly within the app or download it from here if you haven’t already.

Here’s what’s new about Inspire 2.21:

1) We updated the DOCX export support. So now when you export to DOCX document and view the file with Microsoft Word, you will see the style you have on Inspire matching with the outline on Word. And you can choose how your work will look on Word by selecting its styles.

For example, this is what you’ll see when selecting the Traditional style:

And this is what you’ll see with the Formal style:

Update Inspire to the latest version and find the style that works for you the best!

2) We also updated the export support to DOCX and PDF document. Your work now comes with nicer looking fonts and better encoding.

Big, warm thanks to our users for suggesting us to do better on these two fronts. And if you have anything to say to us, or you think there are more that you’d like to see on Inspire, feel free to give us a shout out, and we’ll see what we can do from there. 🙂

Inspire 2.20

It’s been long, old friends!

We just released the latest version of Inspire, 2.20, feel free to download it here  and see the new features we have added to Inspire!

1) Tag is the first new feature that we’d like you to have a try. By clicking the paperclip button on the left side of the editor, or pressing Ctrl+4, you can add whatever tags to your sheets to mark their status, making them stand out from the crowd.

This is how your sheet looks like when you add the tags:

If your WordPress website share the same tag, like you have a “marketing” tag here on Inspire and one on your website, the tag on Inspire will be automatically applied to your WordPress post as well.

2) Thanks to one of our users’ generous help, we add one more language interface to Inspire, the Brazilian Portuguese:

3) We also updated the introduction on Inspire.

Inspire is built to grow and adapt, and we’ve been updating it almost every week over the past few months. So the old intro falls short a bit. So we got it updated to serve you better.

Go ahead and update to the latest version of Inspire and take a look at what we mean in this post.

Inspire 2.19 – More Changes After The Logo Change

One more step ahead to the refresh of our look: We redesigned the icons on Inspire in the latest version of Inspire, 2.19.

Here is a screenshot for you to have a glimpse of the new icons:

In a nutshell, we changed all the icons on Inspire, and you’re more than welcome to check each and every of them out and let us know your thoughts.

In addition, we also optimize Inspire for higher resolution display, so it looks more fabulous on screens with high resolutions such as Surface devices.

Open your Inspire and update to the latest version and you’ll see the changes for yourself. Or you can download Inspire from here and enjoy the ten-day free trial where you have access to all features in the paid version.

Moving forward, we’ll roll out more features that you’ll find helpful for your distraction-free writing. And always feel free to let us know how you think we can make Inspire better to serve your needs. We’re all ears.

Say hello to the new logo

TL;DR: We changed the logo for Inspire.

We launched our new app logo a couple of days ago, as we start to refresh our look in general.

You’ll see the new look anywhere we’re out in public, like our website, Facebook, and of course, our app, Inspire, as well.

We believe the new look better matches what we’ve become today: a simple, clean distraction-free writing environment where you focus on nothing but your writing itself. It’s also a symbol of our dynamic future.

We’ll not bore you with the design thinking and the meaning of every angle and curve of the new logo, you’re smart, busy people. We just want to let you know about the change, so you won’t be too surprised when the icon on your laptop/desktop/tablet look different. It’s still us. We’re still Inspire.

We hope you like this new look and feel for Inspire! Update your Inspire to the latest version and tell us how you feel about it.

Typewriter Mode

For some, staying at the bottom instead of the middle of the writing app at all time when writing longer content is unbearable. To a point that they can’t help to throw in a couple of empty lines under the paragraph that they are writing. Then they scroll back to where they left to continue writing… What a pickle!

But this doesn’t have to be the case with Typewriter Mode.

Just as the name suggest, Typewriter Mode mimics the behavior of a mechanic typewriter. It may be a bit old-fashion for some writers, but it’s definitely a great way to stay focus on your content, which is one of Inspire’s goals.

When typing on Inspire Typewriter Mode, you will always see your current line staying in the middle of the page, while the text you just typed will be pushed upwards, adding one more touch to the distraction-free writing environment that we’re working hard to build. Of course you can scroll to wherever you want the text to be and keep typing.

To enable Typewriter mode, click View, then Typewriter Mode:

Update to the latest version of Inspire and try Typewriter Mode out, and you’re bound to fall in love with it, together with the increased productivity, just like I did. 🙂
