Jack Underwood's Monospace Writer Comes Out Of Beta

Jack Underwood, the developer of arguably the best calendar app on the Play Store, Today Calendar, has been working on his second app for a good while now - since the middle of last year, in fact. It's been available in beta since then, but Jack's just moved it to a general release, making it available for public download on the Play Store.

As Michael said in his initial look at the app last July, it's a writing app, but you won't find any of the extraneous options you might find in apps like Microsoft Word. Instead, it's purposely barebones, just letting you get on with the task in hand - writing.

LG G5 Review: A Bit Of A Mess, Frankly

LG is a company whose smartphone products have gone from bottom of the barrel to highly competitive in under four years. Once the butt of bad phone jokes in the early days of Android, the company has lifted itself up into prominence in particular with the G Series, the originator of that lineage being the Optimus G.

The original G was a model for the Nexus 4 - the glass front and back blended a fairly bold design with modern and high-end components. LG's software really wasn't quite there yet, but they quickly stepped up their game with the G2 in the following year, and in the eyes of many fans perfected that formula in the G3.
