The word counter I’ve been waiting for…

Excellent Word Counter I have just found the best Mac app in the history of apps. Sounds hyperbolic, right? Not even. It's amazing. WordCounter has taken so much pressure off my scatterbrained mind.

So, here's what should have … Continue reading Book in 12 Days
