    Pros: 

    Has dramatically sped up my writing process

    Cons: 

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Version 2 added two of my biggest feature requests - custom keyboard shortcuts, and the ability to preview entire documents before exporting. Makes me super happy!

    Robert Hardy has used this product for one year.

Quick note: The free trial download button on the website was broken for about the first hour after launch. I've since fixed it and you should be able to download the free trial as per normal from our website. Special thanks 🙏 to Aydin for reporting the issue to us on Twitter!

I absolutely love WriteMapper. I used it when documenting my position at my old job, and I wouldn't have managed without it. I also used it as a living document in my project management, and was able to export the whole thing as one big project wrap-up in the end. Truly a time and life saver!

@mattiasd_ Thank you so much for the kind words! 😍 Really glad that you've found it useful. Helping others save time and be more productive was one of the reasons I chose to embark on creating this tool in the first place. Your words mean a lot — thanks again!

Damn! How did I not know about this amazing product?? This is so exciting! I love seeing the outline of whatever I’m writing (a feature of Dropbox Paper that I appreciate) but this takes that 10 steps further! Just wow!

It's been about a year and half since I launched the original version of the app, which was then macOS-only. Since then, I've been adding features to it, making improvements over time and expanding the app's capabilities, leading up to today's unveiling of WriteMapper 2. @anna_0x I hope you'll find WriteMapper useful this 2019! 😃

Downloaded the trial just to see if the all the fuzz was justified. Used it for 7 minutes, then went back to the website and bought a license! The full keyboard control is what did it for me. I've become very fond of apps that empower visual thinking. This is the best-looking, most organized I've used yet! The ability to export to a doc is 💯👌 If you're looking for a visual thinking tool, you might also want to check out Flowlist which has an interesting approach to mind mapping (using lists).

Thanks for the purchase and kind words, @pddro! Hope you'll be finding WriteMapper plenty useful this 2019. 😊 The custom keyboard shortcuts feature was a major undertaking to implement, especially considering that it had to work on all 3 platforms the app is available on: macOS, Windows, and even on the iPad. Very happy to hear your comment on here. Thanks again and have a great year ahead!
