Distractions are the enemy of any writer. PenFlip is a web-application that people can use to overcome that obstacle, with a clear, clean interface that’s void of any clutter. The collaborative writing platform offers markdown support, version control, and a host of other useful composition tools.
Put down the pen, and open up PenFlip. The application works on your desktop, smartphone, or tablet device. Once you’ve signed up for an account, you can start writing from inside your browser. Add formatting to your document with markdown. Quickly send a link to your document to share it with friends or collaborators. Each collaborator will work on his or her own version, as opposed to overwriting the version you’ve created. When the time comes, you can review your collaborators’ changes and decide which to edit accept or reject.
Publish your private documents automatically via PDF, HTML, text, or ePub. You can also make your projects public and share your writing with the world. PenFlip hosts a popular writing community, where users can browse through each other’s work and host discussions about the content they’ve read and created.
