About

 

Speare presents writers with an ultra simple way of writing: one thought at a time.

 

 

 

 

   

 

The framework of Speare is based on what we have termed the "Palette" and the "Canvas". The Palette is where you can outline, store, and organize your ideas, no matter where you are in your project. 

 

 

Once you record a sentence, it goes straight to the Palette for you to organize later, keeping it from jumbling with the rest of your work. 

 

 

When your idea is ready to join the rest of your work, simply drag it into the place it fits best on the Canvas, carefully crafting your masterpiece.

 

 

Once your ideas are transferred to the Canvas, the Reader auto-formats your document so you have a beautiful reading experience according to the template you have chosen.

 

 

Speare is the first of its kind in giving you access to everything that you have written, no matter how long ago you wrote it. This makes it easy to see if a previous sentence fits better in your content without having to worry about losing any of your thoughts.

We have been working on Speare for over a year now. We have a working prototype, and have already written two books with it. We are constantly working on it, and we plan to go to beta soon after the Kickstarter, so that you can have Speare in your hands as soon as possible. 

With your support, we hope to have the first fully functional version of Speare running and flourishing in the world. Your generous support will be funding:

  • Development Time: We have been working like mad to complete Speare as soon as possible, but we want to be able to get it into the world in March of 2017. This means around the clock development on our part.
  • Infrastructure: We need to pay for cloud software in order to be able to host the users on our website along with all the other miscellaneous costs that come from starting a business. 

 

August 2015 - Started developing Speare

May 2016 - Alpha version goes out

October 2016 - Kickstarter Launch

November 2016 - Kickstarter Ends

March 2017 - Full Product launch

 

 

Risks and challenges

We have spent over a year preparing the Speare platform, we have the team to take it into production, and we have a working prototype. With all these things, we are on track to make the March launch date with ease, but with software and companies alike, there are usually unforeseen delays.

If we are so delayed that we have to push back launching Speare, we will make the upmost effort to keep you notified and ahead of the game in all things Speare, working night and day to fix the problem. That being said, we are extremely confident in making our March launch right on time, so you can be assured that we will do everything in our power to get Speare to you as soon as possible.
