[prMac.com] Adelaide, Australia - UX Productivity is proud to announce the release of UX Write, a brand-new word processor for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. UX Write is designed for high-end professional authoring tasks, and supports many features that are normally only found in desktop word processors.
UX Write facilitates working with large, complex documents such as reports, theses, and books. It supports styles, cross-references, automatic section numbering and table of contents, extensive formatting options, figures, and tables. It uses HTML5 has its native document format and can also export to PDF, ensuring documents can be viewed on any operating system or device. Synchronization of files between a user's computer and device occurs automatically, thanks to built-in Dropbox support.
Additionally, UX Write also includes features designed to make typing on the iPad's on-screen keyboard a smoother experience. Auto Correct's "fixes" are always highlighted for the user to confirm or change, keyboard gestures can be used to move the cursor and select text, and common punctuation and formatting keys are added to the regular keyboard.
UX Productivity's founder, Dr. Peter Kelly, explained the motivation behind the app as follows: "I think the iPad is a great device, but as a professional academic, none of the existing word processors came anywhere close to meeting my needs for writing research papers and books. I realized this was a market gap just waiting to be filled, so I decided to start work on UX Write. Nine months later, I'm proud to have the first version available to users."
According to Kelly, this is just the beginning of what he intends on being an ongoing journey. "There's a number of features yet to be added - including bibliographic citations, an equation editor, as well as Microsoft Word and LaTeX support. But these are all in the pipeline and will be coming soon."
