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 WordCounter 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.

See the Release Notes for a history of feature additions.

If you Like Stats, You’ll Dig Timing

The WordCounter tracks your writing productivity. And Timing 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.
