New OS X Native Word Processor!

June 1, 2007 at 7:38 pm Leave a comment

Allow me to introduce BEAN.  It’s a new free open source word processor designed to be a light-weight Cocoa application.

As for features, it has a Page Layout mode, a slider to let you easily zoom in/out, a live word count, AutoSave, and much more.   Plus, it’s fast.

It’s not going to be a replacement for MS Word or OpenOffice if you are serious about your word processing, but it is a big step up from TextEdit.  Plus, the majority of people don’t need the full power of MS Word or OpenOffice.  For this majority, Bean will probably be just enough.
