Byword – Short Review

This app is great for text-oriented content blog posting. It directly links to WordPress, Tumblr, Evernote, Blogger and Scriptogr.am. You can also export as HTML and PDF to the Cloud, iTunes or share through various means in another app, Twitter or Facebook email and Message as well as copy as HTML.

Byword also supports Markdown and allows you to preview it. Some more other important features include being able to post images to WordPress, sync through iCloud and TextExpander extensibility.

Non-English external keyboards now work perfectly with Byword (tested with Japanese layout keyboard and iOS8).

Byword is free but publishing cost 500 Yen (in-app purchase). Single purchase for all iOS devices.

Blog revamp

I have changed the title of the blog to my name – Warren M Tang – and upgraded the blog design to reflect the new direction this blog is heading.

While the blog originally was about corpus linguistics only, I have personally moved on to other areas, and so a more generic title is necessary. With the new title and new look I can now do more in other areas.

I will move away from focusing on just corpus linguistic tutorials and concentrate on making this blog more useful as an information and resource site for corpus linguists, cognitive linguists and English as a Second Language researchers.
