I Write Like is now available on iPhone, iPad, and Mac

We are happy to announce that our writing style analyzer, I Write Like is now available for iPhone, iPad, and Mac!

I Write Like apps

The first version of I Write Like was released in 2010, and since then has been used by millions of people for inspiration and entertainment.

While we have ported the same algorithm to Apple devices, we also added a few features that we think are helpful for those who write:

Text statistics

  • Text statistics and readability. Apps show character, word, and sentence counts, and analyze your text for readability to show you the readability score and how long would it would take for an average reader to read your text.

  • Top rankings and probabilities. In addition to showing you the most similar author, you can view the top three likely candidates and the probabilities of their style matching yours.

  • No limitation on the maximum text size. The web version is limited to about 30 kilobytes of text. The apps don’t have such limitations, so you can process larger texts.

  • Offline analysis. This means that you don’t have to have an Internet connection to analyze your texts and you don’t have to send your writings to our server for processing.

  • Save texts and sync them across your devices with iCloud. The web version just processes your text and discards it, while the app version stores it on your devices and syncs them via iCloud. For example, every text that you write on your iPhone will be available on your Mac, and vice versa.

  • Share your results via Messages, Twitter, or any other app that supports sharing.

  • The macOS version can import your existing text files.

Mémoires 5 released!

We’d like to announce the release of Mémoires 5, the newest version of our journaling app.

This year we are celebrating the 15th anniversary of Mémoires. The latest version is our biggest update ever: it comes with new useful features, modernized user interface, and full support for Macs with Apple Silicon. Rest assured that we will never betray our initial goal: the easiest to use simple journaling app for Mac that you can rely on for a long time.

Highlights of this release

  • Awesome dark mode. It even automatically adapts text and drawings (created by the improved Quick Drawing feature) to the right color.

    Dark mode

  • Color labels for your entries. Group what you write with color labels and then easily browse enteries by label.

    Color labels

  • Redesigned Quick Drawing. Now featuring eraser, Touch Bar support, and better colors that work well both on white and dark background.

    Quick Drawing window

  • Insert from iPhone or iPad. Use your iPhone or iPad to add photo, draw a sketch or scan a document right into Mémoires on your Mac.

    Insert from iPhone or iPad menu

  • Improved performance. We rewrote a lot of code and improved performance of switching between entries and saving journals.

  • Apple Silicon support. Now a Universal app for both Apple Silicon (M1) chips and Intel processors, so that it runs as fast as possible, natively.

  • Improved tabs. Turn on the dedicated tabbed mode in the app preferences and enjoy multiple journals in a single window.

  • Full macOS 12 Monterey support. Fresh new icons for the app and journals, redesigned user interface, and other nits and bits.

  • Better Touch Bar support. Touch Bar is going away, but we still support it and improve how Mémoires works with it. Now you can easily create entries and switch between views using the Touch Bar.

  • Automatic File Format Conversion. To accomodate for new features, Mémoires 5 has an enhanced file format for journals. Once your journals are opened in Mémoires 5, they are automatically converted to the new version, and cannot be opened in older versions of Mémoires. Please make sure to use the latest version on all computers if you share your journals between them.

How to upgrade

Mémoires 5 is the major version, and thus requires a new license. As always, we provide the discounted update pricing for our existing users. Additionally, for a limited time we provide the upgrade price for everyone. Unlike many software companies, we are not switching to the subscription model — you pay for the major version once, receive minior updates for free, and can keep using it forever without paying. As old-school and honest as it gets.

You can learn more about this version and how to upgrade by visiting the What’s New page.

If you’re new to Mémoires, please visit its product page to learn more about the app, and download a trial version or buy the full version.

Updates are coming

If you’re wondering when Mémoires and Video Mémoires are going to be updated to run natively on Apple Silicon, we have good news: we are working on modernizing the apps with a new user interface design, new icons, great new features, and of course, full support for Apple Silicon. Meanwhile, the current versions of our apps work perfectly on the M1 Macs with Rosetta, so you can continue using them even if you have an Apple chip inside your computer.

We don’t share release dates, but you can follow us on Twitter — @codingrobots — to get updates on our progress. Thank you for your support, and we can’t wait to show you what’s coming!
