Liquid | Author
Liquid | Author is a word processor with powerful tools which are fast and natural to use, giving you greater control of your writing process, and citation support to give your documents more credibility.
New in Version 2.0:
Despite it's clean workspace, Author is not a 'markdown' application and therefore supports images, even with transparency, with full citation attributions
In Author you can execute commands quickly so that you become more likely to use them and therefore will have a larger repertoire of commands available for day-to-day use, since they become second nature:
Powerful support for working with citations–often an intimidating (or, let's be honest, boring) task for beginning authors–is a critical functionality that sets Author apart from other word processing systems. Rather than being a chore to attend to at the end of a writing project, Author makes it easy for students to create and check the citations from books, articles, video and the web that they need to include to provide support for claims they are making in their papers. For teachers and others reading the finished work, citations can be clicked to check the accuracy, origin and usefulness of students' claims–resulting in more credible; transparent, connected, believable & checkable documents.
To share your document–that is to say to make it Public–you can choose to Publish (cmd-p) and Author automatically:
Note: This feature is available as an In-App-Upgrade since we decided to make the Author free so that you can try all the features for as long as you like. If you prefer not to purchase this upgrade you can copy all the text and paste it anywhere you need it:
The result of authoring in a more distraction-free environment where you have access to quick searches and references–giving you the mental space and tools to really think your work through–and where you can clearly cite your sources in a way which your reader can check with minimal effort, results in higher quality documents with more credibility.
Author is built for Students...
Author is currently focused on high school and undergraduate students. Citation management systems support for graduate students is currently under development. Other academic and non-academic users should consider trying Author since the academic writing workflow is easily generalisable into most serious writing.
Liquid | Author is developed by Frode Hegland, Teacher of the Year at London College of Communication 2014, co-host of the annual Future of Text Symposium with Vint Cerf, co-inventor of the Internet, and influenced greatly by his late friend and mentor Doug Engelbart, inventor of modern personal computing, including the mouse, word processing, and more, whom he worked with particularly on intellectual augmentation through interactive text. A perspective on how Author supports curiosity and deeper literature is available.
