New in Writings 1.2

This is a very important update of Writings. Thanks for all your feedback and suggestions, they have helped us to make Writings even better!

Workspaces

  • Group your documents according to their context by creating workspaces.
  • Each workspace can be synchronized with a different Drobox folder, even belonging to different Dropbox accounts.
  • For each workspace, you can set the full Dropbox path of the folder you want to synchronize with, even if the folder is located on a nested level (e.g. '/Novel/draft').

Accessory keyboard

  • You can enable, as an option, another row of keys above the standard keyboard to speed up the access to punctuation keys. Also, the accessory keyboard has a tab key you can use, for instance, to indent the first line of a paragraph.

Quick sync

  • Quickly synchronize with Dropbox the document you're writing directly from the Tools menu.

Dropbox

  • The synchronization with Dropbox now reflects on the iPad the deletion/renaming of files made on the Dropbox side. This provides better integration with other apps, such as Scrivener on Mac.

Improvements and fixes

  • Added Italian localization.
  • Fixed a bug that may have prevented the display of red underlines for misspelled words when Check Spelling is enabled.
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements.
