What's New in Version 1.4
fix some bugs
a word app that can’t Print or Save properly?!
Like previous reviewers I appreciate QuickWord’s simplicity and layout, but come on! The only way to simply save an existing edited document is the ‘Save As’ feature—which after several steps only ends up creating a ‘(document name) copy’ version! No basic Cmd-S save, no ‘Save’ in the edit menu. And if you don’t first disable it in prefs, auto-save interrupts you every 5 mins with a dialog saying “Bean won’t allow alteration of the document” or such because you don’t have “administrator" access…? How can an app even be categorized amongst other word processors without a basic save function?
Further infuriating, after reading previous reviews I learn that this $9.99 QuickWord is in fact the same as Bean, a free download. And someone mentioned QWord can’t even print, and that their support person suggested the ugly workaround is to open the doc in another app in order to print! Come on, a “word processor” that can’t do the basic Save and Print? Ridiculous.
Read something online that FoxSoft, the original company that created this marvel, sold or gave it to Google and the latter discountinued it last year….?! Why is this app even still on the App Store?
TWO times now I have been working on documents in this program on an ongoing basis and TWO times now when I go to reopen one and begin where I left off, it can inexplicably no longer be opened in the program! I was just working on a document last night, saved all of my changes and everything was fine. When I went to reopen it this morning, the program no longer opens the document and I get an error message saying that it cannot be opened by Bean, and that Bean does not open documents of this type or there is a problem with the document. How can it not open a Word file which the program automatically saved it as itself?!
I can't tell you how frustrating it is to have to reopen the document in Text Edit, save it as an RTF and basically rewrite the ENTIRE thing to re-add all of the formatting, etc. 20,000 words is not something I want to continuously have to rewrite simply because this program cannot do its job. Save your money and buy MOAppsWrite - I had used that one before and never had any issues with it. I will be going back to it and will never be using or trusting this program again. What a waste.
Works but has a few bugs
I'm a writer, and I've always used Microsoft Word on my PC Laptop to write. Then, we bought this big new iMac, and I needed a word processing program that would be compatible with Word on my PC.
I'm really impressed with this program, especially at a cost of $9.99.
Here are a few bugs that I've discovered and been unable to resolve.
If I embed a hyperlink into my document, save the document, and close the document, when I reopen the document, the hyperlink is gone. The URL is still there. But, it is no longer linked to the internet.
Under the "View" heading, there is a submenu titled "Get Info." I've tried to use it on three separate occasions. All three times it locked the computer up and I had to Force Quit the program.
If you incorporate bullet points, or any kind of list, using this program, it will not transfer over to Microsoft Word correctly. You will need to fix the formatting. It's easy to do, but it's still an extra step.
I wish they had included a help guide or manual with the program.
All in all, I'm pretty happy. It's easier to use than Microsoft Word. What I've been doing is write my articles on this program, then moving them over to Word (on the PC) to clean up any formatting issues.
