Awesome Upgrade!

A good tool is always good to have and Desk has been one of my tools for a while, this new upgrade works awesomely! While still only about 30 minutes in on using it, no huge issues other than a lacking the ability to use a : in the title, but I figure just released, I’ll submit a bit of feedback and let the cards fall as they may :-)

Thanks for a great app John! Keep up the great work!

ps. Thanks for the new vlogs, enjoying it very much!

It’s about writing

Simple, pleasant app that does what it intends. The focus is on writing. When I open it, I’m staring at a blank screen and I feel compelled to write. It’s not quite the same as staring at a blank word document - the UI is inviting and peaceful.

I’ve used Desk before, and I’m glad the dev is focusing on Wordpress and I especially like the organizing of posts (in the collapsable left pane).

Beautiful, simple app. Recommended for anyone who writes.

Nice Blogging App

I have used several different apps for my WordPress blog over the years. Desk has become my favorite one by far. It is a nice writing enviornment. It is very reliable, no crashes in my experience. I have submitted one support request which was answered in a timely manner. All in all a good experience. I would recommend this to anyone who does a fair amount of writing and/or blogging.
