A few weeks ago, I did a search in the windows store to find a word document touch oriented app I could use. To my horror, every one I found sucked. They had the absolute bare minimum features. None of them have the most basic word processor features like autosave, spell check, etc. After complaining to a colleague of mine, he encouraged me to write my own.
So, here's the project. I published it a few weeks ago. The goal is to try to make it as practical and useful as possible. So far, it has autosave, spell checker (in 121 languages), speech recognition (6 languages), be able to open many documents at the same time, view 2 documents in a split-view mode, and many other features. Still has a to-do list, so it is not complete according to my plans. The most important thing is I want to code this app as efficient and minimalistic as possible. This means that I want to cram as many features into this app as I could and still have the app package as small as possible. Right now, it is about 2.0mb. In other words, I want to avoid lazy, inefficient coding as much as I can.
Known bugs... the speech recognition stops working if the user switches from one language to another without shutting the feature off first. There's a way for the trial user to make the app function with full features. Still trying to track down what's causing this.
Anyway, the only thing missing from the trial is the ability to add text to the document. Everything else works. So, try it out. Feel free to critique and give me suggestions.
