Besides our previously mentioned issue following blogs from Mastodon, we had some additional configuration-related issues with federation on Write.as. That’s now fixed, so now you should be able to follow your blog from the fediverse again!
We’ve started putting all of our current help resources into one place: our new Help page! Check it out, whether you’re just getting started or looking to do more advanced things with Write.as.
Here's a link to an article I wrote on integrating the Sparkle updater framework into WriteFreely, a SwiftUI-lifecycle Mac app using SPM. https://write.as/angelo/integrating-sparkle-in-swftui-mac-apps
@aspie4K Unfortunately, a free trial would be pretty complex to implement in the app. But you can also get a refund from Apple if it turns out the app doesn't meet your expectations. As always, I'd love to hear your input if you try it out!
Thanks again for using #WriteFreely, it means a lot. And thanks for the feedback.
@aspie4K It's awesome to hear you like the platform so much! And I appreciate your feedback on the price.
We priced it this way because people really enjoy having a native iOS app, and of course it took months of effort for us to build. But it's fast, it's free software (https://github.com/writeas/writefreely-swiftui-multiplatform/), and you only pay £15 once to get all improvements forever.
Still, we do run discounts on the app occasionally -- you could always watch out for those by following our @deals blog.
For a while, #fediverse users weren't able to follow Write.as / WriteFreely blogs from Mastodon if their instance's "Authorized Fetch" feature was enabled.
