You rock !

Just needs one more thing….

Only needs one more thing IMO: chunky mechanical keyboard sound effects.

Wow

Absolutely beautiful. Really evokes that retro nostagia in me. I don’t use Word much anymore, I write out most everything on here and if I must I’ll copy and paste at the end. 10/10 would recommend, along with their other equally fantastic app, Cathode!
