A quick look at our roadmap and what you can expect coming to LivingWriter

We are constantly improving LivingWriter with suggestions from you, the writers. However we are doing it the smart way.

We don't like writing apps or any tools that are bogged down with unecessary features. We take our time to meticulously integrate features into LivingWriter so that they are intuitive as well as refreshing.

Soon we will be launching a vote system for our subscribed users to push up to the front the features they care about most. Our promise is to listen to these suggestions and make sure they're at the forefront of development, always.
