What can you use the app for?

Typerighter is a basic text editor that works in the user’s browser. The application provides the user with a blank space to add any kind of notes, stories, messages or other information. Users can open their Typerighter account and access it at any time during their day. Users can also create multiple pages to separate notes on different activities or subjects. The application doesn’t offer any creative or fancy formatting options. It is designed to offer very basic text functions so the user can save lines of text, create outlines or space out lists. Users who add the necessary command can make their document viewable by the public. Each account is given access to an archive feed that contains all the user’s writing, both public and private.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Typerighter was created to give internet users a simple way to save notes and any other text they need or want to share. The application has a number of convenient features, such as short cuts and an RSS feed of previous writing. It has been mentioned in reviews, but not extensively. Most appreciate the convenience and flexibility of the application however the cost may be a turn off for some users. Others may have trouble understanding each feature because the commands are not built into the interface.

What are the differences to other apps?

Typerighter is essentially a simple text editor. The application doesn’t offer anything groundbreaking or innovative. The only really appealing aspect of Typerighter is that the user can easily open a new page and start saving notes instantly. The note pages can be set to public or private, allowing the user to share or store their work. These features are helpful, but nothing terribly new that the user can’t find elsewhere.

Alternative Apps
How does the web app look and feel to use?

Typerighter gives the user everything they need to type, which can be summed up as a blank page. The interface doesn’t exist. The text appears as the user begins typing. There are no buttons to help the user find new commands. The site contains a short “how to” page that provides information on various commands and functions, but the user will have to memorize these or return to the “how to” page if they forget any commands.

How does the registration process work?

New users can sign up for a Typerighter account using the form presented on the homepage. The user is asked to provide their email address, password and membership option. The user must also add their credit card number, expiration date and preferred domain name. New users should note that a grey link below the form is available for those who want to give the application a try before paying for it.

What does it cost to use the application?

Typerighter is handy but it isn’t free. Users can purchase a basic account for a one-time fee of $5 plus a penny for each existing member (which puts the current basic price at $6.95). Users can also choose a Pro account which allows writing with #tags. Pro users pay $9 per month or $90 for a one year subscription to the service. The cost isn’t high, but it may be a bit much for the level of service the user receives. The same need could be fulfilled by saving a Word document on the user’s desktop.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Typerighter is an interesting application for users who frequently need to save notes throughout the day. Users who save a lot of notes may be willing to pay for the service, but others will find one of the many free alternatives to be just as useful. The application could use some extra features to make it more attractive, especially if a fee is going to be charged. The fee isn’t high, but it is a bit steep for the features and functions Typerighter is capable of.
