Launchwrite for Mac: Text Gets The Launchpad Treatment

Launchwrite

I reviewed an obscure Mac app called Grandview (by Dark Heartfelt Software) a little while ago. Grandview specialized in blotting out your screen and forcing you to write one word or one sentence at a time. The concept sounded a little gimmicky when I described it to others, but Grandview was fun to use.

It turns out that the developers at Dark Heartfelt Software have a new $2 app called Launchwrite, which loads up as a quick notepad and uses your desktop wallpaper as the background (just like Launchpad in OS X Lion). The only thing you can do in Launchwrite for now is write (you can’t save or load files), but I imagine it could be an interesting alternative to using a sticky note if all you want to do is keep some text for later use. I’m admittedly a little skeptical about this concept as well, but it’s interesting enough to spread the word about – and if I learned anything from my time with Grandview, it’s that even the most obscure ideas can have the potential to delight.
