You'll also find Web Monetization support in the next version of (v0.13): github.com/writeas/writefreely

We still need to add support for exclusive content, but we're waiting to see if users need it. There's much more infrastructure needed for this feature in order to verify payments, including additional backend applications out of our control. But if users will find it useful, we'll include the feature and fully document everything.

We just released v1.0.1 of our iOS app!

This update comes with plenty of quality-of-life improvements, plus some bug fixes. See the full changelog on the forum: discuss.write.as/t/writefreely

We just released a new beta version of our iOS app! If you're a tester, you can get the latest release on TestFlight now.

Of course, the iOS app also works with our hosted service, Write.as. So if you've been waiting to log in to your account on iOS, now you can at last!

Here's how to do that: howto.write.as/using-the-write

(We unfortunately don't have a way to migrate anonymous posts from our Write.as v1.0 iOS app today, but we hope to in the future!)

After a long summer of work, our iOS app is dropping today! Keep an eye out for our announcement soon.

We've updated the Apps page to include supported platforms and our own brand new iOS app (leaving beta soon)!

Our WriteFreely iOS app is now in beta! 🎉

With this, you can finally publish to any instance (including Write.as) from your iPhone or iPad.

I've been thinking about moving some development resources to their own dedicated space, instead of keeping everything so closely tied to Write.as.

#371 Navigation improvements - writefreely.org/pull/371

A few months ago, as we worked on collaborative blogs on Write.as, we quietly rolled out some navigation improvements. They made it easier to get around different blog sections (Customize, Stats, View) and get back to the editor -- plus they made things more consistent. Now we're happy to bring these changes to ! This pull request is ready for review and merging.

#369 Support Web Monetization - writefreely.org/pull/369

We've started experimenting with the standard, so readers can stream payments to writers. This is a very early feature, but we want to get feedback from everyone as soon as possible, so we can build this around you.

#356 Draft list paging - writefreely.org/pull/356
