It features:

  • A smart editor that automatically saves as you write and has other nifty features that saves you time as you write.
  • Word counter with the ability to set word targets and then get positive feedback on achieving those targets.
  • A complete Pomodoro system to set writing session intervals so that you can use short focussed intervals to write.
