Glorium

A contextual filler text generator for Mac

It's always baffled me how we spend so much time on every small detail of our designs, then hastily copy in Latin filler text that doesn't belong. I built Glorium as a better way to do filler text. Based on the context you're working on, whether it be medicine or sports, Glorium generates filler text that's contextual - that is, the text reads like it's related to the industry you're designing for. It's a small detail, but I think it's important in making your designs feel authentic and natural. I built Glorium over a one week vacation from work, where I locked myself in my office for a week straight and emerged with a completed product. I've found it's better to take a continuous block of time off to work on your passion project then to hack away on it every weekend, where with every passing weekend, your motivation diminishes a bit. I think it's something I might try more often. I really enjoyed building this one. If you have any questions about process or feedback on the app, I'd love to hear it.
Would you recommend Glorium to a friend?

This is an awesome idea! I hate thinking of filler text but would never put latin in my designs. Any plans for a trial? Would love to check it out before buying, just to see how it works.

@nadomars maybe it might be a good idea to put some sample output in the description. Would that be helpful?
