It’s been just over 24 hours since the release of OmmWriter for iPad and we must say we are quite impressed with the reception it has received around the world. It’s even been picked up already on blogs like Wired, PC World, and Cult of Mac, but we have to give the biggest thank you of all to our fellow users and fans. Thanks so much for continuing to stick by us!
This being the very first version of OmmWriter for iPad, some important questions have been asked by our users, and we would like to take the time to answer them. We also want to let you in on a few of the features and improvements we are looking to make for the next update.
I can’t find OmmWriter in my country’s App Store… Why is that?
We are a bit hesitant to release OmmWriter globally due to the current set of languages OmmWriter currently officially supports (English, French, German and Spanish).
How am I able to type accent marks?
By pressing on a letter for a couple seconds, the corresponding accent marks will appear. For all of our Spanish speakers, the “ñ” is found by pressing and holding the “n” key.
I can’t figure out how to get the keyboard to appear in portrait mode.
The keyboard is only available when in landscape “write” mode. We wanted to create a way for writers to read their work without distractions, however, because we know that sometimes changes need to be made, the text area is still editable.
What can I expect in the next update?
Because it has only been a day since the release of OmmWriter for iPad, it is difficult for us to get a good idea of what our users want. However, the one feature we will be sure to include is better file management. Currently one of your top requests is support for DropBox. We are currently looking into it as well as other alternatives and will get back to you once we have made a decision on the winning solution. If you have any suggestions feel free to drop us a line.
Although we have not come across any major bugs, if you do come across something, please let us know if you come across any by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
