I saw two different reviews that said it performed like a dog on an iPad 3. One recommended it but only as a means to have your documents with you. It specifically stated you should do most of the heavy lifting on a Mac and I don't have a Mac so...

Also, it gets dinged for being sluggish in several reviews on the store page.

I have it.  I have an iPad 3.  I had it when I had an iPad 1.  There's apparently *something* that's different from device to device, because on neither of my iPads is it sluggish.  Don't know what I can give you beyond personal experience.

The author seems to miss the point about what a tablet is for. Some decent criticisms for the iPad mini though.

I looked at several of the ones you listed and for now I have settled on Notebooks. Circus Whatever, despite the revolting name, seemed to have a lot of very nice features, but it got panned as being practically unusable due to sluggishness.

I don't have a problem with sluggishness, either on my iPad or on my Mac, so I'm not sure what they're referring to.

We really do need to start looking beyond this one planet again. If for no other reason than embracing the wisdom of not keeping all your eggs in one basket. I personally think of the various manned space efforts as the ultimate embodiment of an "off premise" backup system.

Kickstarter has released a 'Best of' for the year 2012.  Some really interesting projects (and some really strange ones) there that I hadn't even heard of before, and some really interesting statistics.  I don't really like the format of the presentation, but it was interesting enough that I read the whole thing. smiley

In the 70's every was sure we'd have flying cars by now.

I remember reading old Popular Mechanics magazines with flying cars, jet packs, and underwater cities. The future then looked a lot better than the future we're looking at now.

Then again, look at Popular Mechanics now, and you'll be saying that the Popular Mechanics then looked better than the Popular Mechanics now.

Is the longstanding discount for TheBat! still active?

I've culled the inactive discounts. The ones in the Shareware Discount Codes Here board are all active and verified.
2609  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Good writing program for the iPad? on: January 08, 2013, 04:57:04 PM
The ones I find myself going back to (depending on the task)

IA Writer
WriteRoom
Textastic
enso Writer
Notebook

iA Writer and Writeroom are easy to use on any other computer because of their sync.  Notebook is cool because of Sync also- but it's only available for Mac, so that cuts out using my desktop, only my laptop.  I love enso, but it's sync to Dropbox isn't automatic.  Same with Textastic- it would be the one to beat with code editing also, other than the fact that the sync is manual.

Just like on Windows, I'm addicted to editors, so the ones I've tried include:
My Writing Nook
Notebooks
Textastic
Noteshelf
Notes Plus
iA Writer
enso Writer
Essay
Writing Kit
Note & Share
WriteRoom
Textkraft EN
CleanWriter
Circus Ponies Notebook
Evernote
Noterize
Penultimate
MobileNoter
Notability
Simplenote
PlainText
WritePad
Nimbus Plus
Nebulous Notes

There are some other code specific ones, but I don't think that's what you're looking for.  I've been looking at trying Write 2, specifically because it lets you use your iPhone as a keyboard which I think is cool smiley

If I may ask, what did you think of Textilus?

ColorSchemer was done recently.

Yes... I saw the link (and verified it) after posting this thread.

The whereisit link needs correcting.

Thanks... corrected.

That said, I completely don't trust NASA to do this. The overall structure of NASA (some specific success stories like the Mars Spirit rover not withstanding) is entrenched in the top-down risk-averse structure that's dedicated primarily to ensuring its own continued existence. I'd be much happier to see it being attempted by an organization like Space X, or Planetary Resources.

+1000.  NASA is at its core a government agency.  With all of the negatives that implies.  I can't help but think that if they'd started incentives for private companies to get involved, we'd be much more advanced than we are today.  Just the number of accidents that we've had doing what should be routine (not to say that they aren't incredible accomplishments, but still), says a lot about NASA IMO.

2616  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Smart Edit (for Novelists & Creative Writers) on: January 08, 2013, 09:22:53 AM
- learned something new, thank you! (You can't google for pictures if you don't have some search term, now you gave me the search terms needed for finding!)

Now learn something "new": Go to Google Images, drag a copy of my picture and drop it on the search box, and without typing any search terms, you will instantly get this:
 (see attachment in previous post)

The strange thing is, it's not searching on the image.  I 'edited' my avatar from a different image.  Even though it has been edited (the face removed), it still shows the images for the original image- not the edited one, even though I use it on several sites.

What I'm trying to say is, put the money to ACTUAL GOOD USE, and not into the pockets of the large corporations.

Good use?  Government?  Isn't that an oxymoron?  Grin

Wraith888: Technically, you're perfectly right, and I knew this even before I made my request. But since the thread starter insisted on his thread being NOT SPAM, then all of us had us in a big way, to change NOT SPAM into SPAM would be just retaliation and more elegant at that then saying something like, all those who did this to us are big a...

So why not change the subtitle to [ATTN: SCAM, WORSE THAN ANY POSSIBLE SPAM]

It wasn't by any means malicious or intentional- he was just posting a link to an article, and what he thought was helpful information.  And the NOT SPAM is because most of these types of posts are assumed to be so.

So no retaliation necessary. smiley

One of the things that makes it hard for new members to figure out what software is currently available is the fact that there is a lot of noise from old discounts.  I'll be going through, pruning them, and moving them to expired discounts for posterity- from here, and shareware discounts for members.  I started with redirections, but figured that those cause just as much noise, so there won't be redirections in the future- they'll just be moved.  If you know of any that are expired, let me know so I can sort them appropriately.  Because of this, confine any discussion threads to the sub-board Member's Only Discount Discussion.

Thanks!

Hi everyone,

Hopefully I got the ball rolling on the new year with our current discounts in a satisfactory fashion. smiley  But I don't want it to stop there!  Most of the ideas for companies to contact I got from threads here, recent recommendations, and my own experiences.  Help me out with any requests that you might have in this thread.  After I get a few in the pipeline, I'll start up a status thread to let you know how it's going with your favorite request.

Also, to make it a win-win situation for the companies involved, if you have a favorite that you've been using and want to tout it for other users- write a mini-review.  If someone posts a request here and you have the software and are in love with it- write a mini-review!  And if you purchase something with a discount (or win it in a giveaway)- write a mini-review!!  They really do help in securing new sponsors.

Thanks!

I agree with you but we are living in he world where you subscribe games (Steam does not sell games any more) and some people need warnings on hot coffee cups.


Valve hasn't helped themselves with their use of terms as they are on the fringe of what a subscription might be, but if you read the TOS, then it's pretty clear that they're selling you a revocable license.  A subscription usually implies that there is an ongoing payment, and that's what people that use it in the negative towards Steam like to imply.  Their terms are crafted to insulate themselves from a subset of customers (not agreeing with that approach).  But to dirisively say that you subscribe to games is IMO propagating the incorrect view of the TOS to solidify arguments that might not be applicable.

Could one of the moderators change the subtitle of this thread from (NOT SPAM) to (SPAM), please?

Why?  No matter what happens, it's still not forum spam.

+1 w/ Helmut85...

I think it would be more accurate (and fair to Adobe) if it read: Rumors of Adobe releasing CS2 for free? (NOT TRUE)

Changing thread titles is cool, and a good idea... but it's still not spam.  And there's still useful information to be found in the thread, IMO.

-the program's full name is PageFour - Software for Novelists and Creative Writers and has nothing to do with a personal informations manager.

And in that capacity, I've found it top notch.  It helped me get organized enough to actually complete NaNoWriMo- no small help.  It also helped me to realize that source control is key for my writing endeavors as much as my programming endeavors.
