Roadmap for Version 1

Transparency is important to me. Here is a list of feature updates you will get for your money when you buy the current version of the Word Counter today:

After that, I’ll work on a vastly expanded version 2 feature set, available as a paid upgrade. Version 1 will then be in maintenance mode with long-term support: I’ll release fixes to ensure compatibility with operating system updates, but no new major features.

If you Like Stats, You’ll Dig Timing

The Word Counter tracks your writing productivity. And Timing 2 is an automatic time tracker by my friend Daniel to figure out how long you spend on a project and its parts. Together they help you spend more productive time on the stuff that really matters to you.
