Editorially has officially launched today. I have been in on the beta of Editorially for quite a while, but really don’t know much about their product roadmap. So now the doors are open, and if you want to give it a go you can sign up and do just that.
For those that don’t know Editorially, it is an online writing app, where you can invite others to checkout, modify, comment on, and discuss your writing.
It’s a great tool for writing with other people.
I’ve been using it with my editor James for quite a while now and it has been great. I love being able to pop a document on there, still work on it privately, and then invite him to it. I can add a comment about the overall document, or highlight a specific section that I want him to see.
There’s still a lot missing and a lot that could be added to make this a great tool. Right now, it is the best tool I have found for working with an editor and I am, overall, happy with it. Now that the doors are open, I will also be adding it to the workflow for my day job for collaborating on long documents — it’s just leaps and bounds better than “track changes”.
