Desk: A New Way to Tell Stories


We’re very excited to see the release of John Saddington’s new app Desk and we’re happy to announce compatibility with the Pressable Content Publishing Platform. Here are John’s own words about Desk:

Desk is a brand new writing experience for the digital publisher, although you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how familiar that experience really is!

Hi, I’m John Saddington (@Saddington), a blogger (14 years) and developer (17 years) and I’m passionate about digital publishing and beautiful storytelling.

My goal was simple: Create the most simple publishing app ever, one that would never change and that would become as trustworthy and true as pen and paper for the digital publisher.

That app is Desk.

If you have any questions feel free to ping me directly:

And, please let me know how I can make you more successful at writing and publishing!

John has offered to give away 5 copies FREE to our customers for the launch of the new app. To enter just click here and tweet! We’ll announce the winners on Monday, November 3, 2014.

Even if you don’t win, you can pick up your own copy in the Mac App Store today.
