I just came across a download for writers called journalite. After just having my computer cleaned of viruses gotten during a download, I'm skeptical of downloading this program. Has anyone heard anything about this beta version of their software? 

 

Thanks so much -

Hello, I have no experience with the product.
But I would say this is the safe download site. L@@K

I do notice that the Download is a Beta version of the Application.

Beta, named after the second letter of the Greek alphabet, is the software development phase following alpha. It generally begins when the software is feature complete. Software in the beta phase will generally have many more bugs in it than completed software, as well as speed/performance issues and may still cause crashes or data loss. The focus of beta testing is reducing impacts to users, often incorporating usability testing. The process of delivering a beta version to the users is called beta release and this is typically the first time that the software is available outside of the organization that developed it.

Thank you for that quick reply. As I sat here looking at it, I realized I could just do the same thing, close enough anyway, in Word or on my google drive. Think I'll wait for the final product and let some other writer do their testing for them.

No problem. I just wanted to be sure there was a safe download site so you did not get any free riders again.

A program for writers I would be very interested in but Beta programs are something I try to avoid.  How to find out if it ever gets out of Beta status?
