Trapped during World War II in a prison camp in Germany, a group of Allied soldiers intends to leave, not only to escape, but also to lure Nazi forces away from battle, to search for the fugitives. Among those determined to escape are American Captain Virgil Hilts and British squadron leader Roger Bartlett. By cheating on their captors, they dig a tunnel for their escape.

wwriteLite 8.3.0 Now Available

wwriteLite app icon

wwriteLite has been in development for almost 14 years. Over that time there have been many changes. The app has gone from being a very basic text editor, to now having a significant number of features, including templates, writing prompts, one word prompts, and even rich text file support.

wwriteLite 8.3.0 is probably one of the biggest updates thus far, and it includes only a few features, but they are big ones. The new features include:

  • Saved Prompts
  • Prompt Searching
  • Saved Prompt Syncing
  • File and Template Syncing

Let us look at each of these in turn, starting with Saved Prompts.

Saved Prompts

Version 8.0 of wwriteLite introduced “One Word Prompts” and “Writing Prompts”. Now, with 8.3.0 you can save any of the prompts. This is done by opening up the One Word or Writing prompt screen and then tapping on the “star” icon. This will save the prompt.

You can then go back and look at your Saved Prompts by performing the following steps:

  1. On the File List screen, tap on the “+” button.
  2. Tap on the “Prompts” menu.
  3. Tap on “Saved Prompts”.

Here you can tap on any of your saved prompts and it will create a new file with the saved prompt.

Prompt Searching

Also new is that the ability to search One Word Prompt, Writing Prompts, or even your saved prompts. This is done by swiping down from one of the prompt screens to perform a search. This is only available on devices running iOS 15 or later, or macOS Monterey or later.

Saved Prompt Syncing

In addition to being able to saving prompts, you can enable Saved Prompt syncing by performing the following:

  1. Tap on Tools.
  2. Tap on Settings.
  3. Scroll down to “Syncing”.
  4. Tap on “Enable Saved Prompt Syncing”.

Saved Prompt syncing must be enabled on each device. Saved Prompt data is stored in iCloud and only you have access to your saved prompts.

File and Template Syncing

Similar to Saved Prompt syncing, you can now enable syncing of your files between devices. The steps to enable File and Template syncing are similar to that of Saved Prompts. The steps are:

  1. Tap on Tools.
  2. Tap on Settings.
  3. Scroll down to “Syncing”.
  4. Tap on “Enable File and Template Syncing”.

Just as with Saved Prompt syncing, you will need to enable File and Template syncing on each of your devices. As with Saved Prompts, your Files and Templates are stored in iCloud and only you will have access to your files and template.

This covers all of the new features with wwriteLite 8.3.0. Syncing has been a long time coming and it is now here.

You can view the full change log on the wwriteLite website. As usual, wwriteLite 8.3.0 is a free update and is available as a free download.
