Developing Wake2

October 7, 2008

I’ve spent 4 hours working on the release of Wake2 today after I finished the majority of my school. It looks like it’ll be ready in a few weeks instead of, as I had originally anticipated, in December. I have finished 2 of the 3 main features for Wake2. The first one, Excerpts lets you export a region of text you select as an image, and Edit lets you create and edit (yup-even after you’ve published them!) Wake documents. Now it’s time to tackle the big one – Library. Library is an online database where you can upload and download Wake documents from within Wake (not your web browser).  I’ve never done something this big before, and I’m excited to see how thing roll out. Below are links to 2 vids I took for Excerpts and Edit. Enjoy!



If you have NO CLUE what Wake is, it’s an app for reading and publishing your stories, work, and any other document you can think of. How it differs from a word processor, like Microsoft Word, is that you can publish your stuff without worrying about other people “pirating” it. It’s explained better at my website and the CNET page.

UPDATE: Wake2 BETA is available for download.
