Friday’s updates

I’m getting the feeling that we’re going to spoil you a bit with all these updates … 😀

What’s new this time?

  • you can now enter HTML code (for links etc.) once your article is finished and then export hundreds of unique versions of that article with embedded links
  • we have further improved the way Spin Rewriter handles verbs such as ‘have’, ‘do’ and ‘be’ (which are the most common verbs in English language)
  • we have further improved the learning aspect of our software and applied the new learning algorithms to 10,000+ articles that have already been spun with our software as well
  • we have thoroughly tested critical aspects of our software and our servers, and fine-tuned some parameters

That’s it for today, however – you know us, we always have something cool in the oven for you. 😀

Have a lovely weekend, everyone! 😉

One giant leap for Spin Rewriter!

Today’s updates are – by a wide margin! – the most important updates we’ve released since Spin Rewriter has been launched on September 14th!

What’s been improved:

  • We have spent the better part of the day closely inspecting the learning process of Spin Rewriter and fine-tuning various elements of it. Spin Rewriter now understands that “all spun articles are not created equal”. What does that really mean? Well, if one of our users spends much more time working on each of their articles than the majority of our other users, if they are much more meticulous when it comes to selecting the correct synonyms, if they do it “by hand” instead of using the “one click rewrite”, if … (there’s another 12 factors!) … Spin Rewriter now values their feedback even more. On the other hand Spin Rewriter can ignore feedback from poorly-spun articles. This will help Spin Rewriter get really amazing – really fast!
  • We have added proper support for auxiliary verbs “has” and “have”. Spin Rewriter now understands when these words are used as an auxiliary verb, and when they mean “be in possession of”. This update alone makes Spin Rewriter’s One Click Rewrite about 15% better!
  • We have added proper support for the verb “be” (in all grammatical tenses and persons!) when it’s used to link the subject of a sentence with a predicate (a subject complement). In other words, when it’s used as a “copula”. This means that Spin Rewriter will now rewrite this verb in a much more suitable manner.
  • All exports now contain text files that have meaningful names. The general rule of thumb is that the text files are named using the first 6 words of your original article. This will make it much easier for you to keep track of your exported spun articles.
  • We have added a number of additional explanations throughout the website and registration / welcome / sign-up emails, so you should be able to figure everything out almost instantly now.

If you’ve managed to read through all of this, I’m sure you’ll agree that these are the most important updates we’ve ever released publicly. They don’t have much to do with the actual user interface, but we believe Spin Rewriter has been improved 15-25% today alone. And with the new and improved learning system it will only keep on getting better at a tremendous rate.

We’re doing everything we can to make sure you guys love our product, and we won’t stop till we’re the undisputed number 1 in the market!

Thanks! 😀

Negated auxiliary verbs – improved!

You might not know what the title of this post is trying to say. In fact, you shouldn’t really care about that – it’s our job to do so.

In short, it means that Spin Rewriter is now even better when it comes to words such as “don’t”, “couldn’t”, “mustn’t”, “hasn’t” etc.

And we have some great updates planned for tomorrow as well, including the annoying “individualses” bug … it will all be taken care of tomorrow! 😀

Spin Rewriter improved – again

You’ve probably gotten used to our quick updates by now. Today we’re releasing 4 new updates:

  • you can now check out the original (not spun) articles from your Archive
  • we added Firefox 3.6 support because many of you are still using this old version of Firefox because of add-on compatibility
  • you can now set a custom “article separator” text when you’re exporting hundreds of unique articles into a single text file
  • you can request promo copy samples (etc.) from your affiliate panel

Tomorrow we’re planning another update that will be a bit bigger, or more fundamental – we’ll further improve the way Spin Rewriter is handling verbs like can’t, doesn’t, hasn’t, …

Stay tuned! 😀

6 more updates!

No sleep for us. 😀

We’ve just rolled out another 6 great updates, and we’ve got another batch of them “in the oven” for Monday or Tuesday.

What’s new, what’s been added:

  • you can import pre-spun articles that are using any spintax format, and they’ll be automatically converted to Spin Rewriter’s spintax in Step 2
  • we have joined the first 2 steps into a single step, made everything much easier and even more robust, and it should make Spin Rewriter even faster
  • when you’re rewriting your article on the paragraph/sentence level, your article is automatically saved every 2 seconds – this way you never lose your work, even if you close your browser by accident!
  • you can now use a special button to immediately jump back from the final step to Step 2 (edit mode)
  • we have made the color scheme easier on the eyes – words with synonyms are green (instead of red), buttons have black text (instead of red), etc.
  • we have added “Quick Tips” to some phases of the process – these should provide answers to the most common questions
  • some other minor issues were fixed

Once again – hope you like it! 😀

Spin Rewriter now comes with a Free Trial!

We’ve received approximately 1.7 million emails about a Free Trial option, and how people would love to test our software first before actually purchasing it.

I think we’ve already demonstrated that basically everything we do, we do it for the good of our users. This is why we introduced a 5-Day Free Trial option a couple of minutes ago.

This way you can feel free to try out Spin Rewriter for free (no strings attached) and see if it makes your life easier. If you love it (and we’re pretty sure that you will), your subscription will be activated once the free trial runs out.

I hope you like this new “random act of coolness.” 😀

Today’s awesome updates

We’re still not resting, not even a little bit. Here are some of the huge Spin Rewriter updates we just rolled out:

  • you can now press the “R” button just next to the “T” and “A” buttons to quickly use the currently selected synonyms with every occurence of the current word in the whole article
  • you can see the word count of your article before proceeding to Step 3
  • we have improved the learning algorithms that are actively improving Spin Rewriter SO MUCH that it’s hard to believe – within a month Spin Rewriter will produce articles of amazing quality!

I hope you like all of this, it only makes Spin Rewriter shine even more – and we couldn’t be more excited about that!

Thanks to everybody who hopped on board and is already using Spin Rewriter,
you guys seriously rock,

Aaron 😀

No such thing as a Sunday … :)

There’s no such thing as a Sunday when you’re running a start-up … especially a start-up that has just EXPLODED and you’re getting a metric ton of feedback every day about what your users love / think could be improved / think could be added.

You probably noticed Friday’s post that was filled with updates and general goodies for our wonderful users. Well, we’re not stopping there. 😀

Here’s what was added during the weekend:

  • keyboard navigation (YES, it’s true – you can highlight the previous word with the Shift+A combination, and the next word with the Shift+S combination)
  • the keyword that you’re currently working on is now highlighted by being green instead of red
  • you are now able to export your finished (spun) article into a text file with spinning syntax (spintax) in place
  • you can now create categories and then sort your finished articles by these categories
  • a bunch of other minor issues were fixed

Thanks again for using Spin Rewriter, everybody,
we’ll make sure it only gets better and better! 😀

A bunch of updates

The launch frenzy still hasn’t settled down, however I was able to find a couple of hours in between writing a ton of emails to introduce some great updates to Spin Rewriter.

Yes, that’s correct – Spin Rewriter is already getting better not only by learning from its users about the quality of various synonyms and meanings, but we’re also actively improving user experience and adding new cool features.

Here’s what was updated in the last 24 hours alone:

  • we fine-tuned the uniqueness meter that tells you how unique your generated articles will be
  • we added support to ignore whole phrases (multiple words) when doing a One Click Rewrite
  • we have changed the 800-word limit to a much higher one that you shouldn’t hit when rewriting your articles
  • you are now able to delete finished articles from your archive
  • you can export up to 400 unique version of your article in 400 text files, OR in a single text file
  • Spin Rewriter now automatically fixes most common misspellings (dont, doesnt, hasnt, havent, wierd, definately, etc.)
  • we fixed and improved a bunch of other stuff

Hope you guys like it! 😀

Launch exceeded our wildest dreams

It’s been about 24 hours since the launch and things … well, things are still crazy around here.

I’m having some slight issues typing this, partly because of the fact that I haven’t slept properly for a couple of days, and partly because of the fact that I’m still absolutely amazed at how great everything worked out.

We signed up over 300 subscribers in the first hour alone (5 subscribers per minute!) and this trend hasn’t slowed down too much, even though it’s been close to 24 hours now. It’s absolutely crazy to be a part of this.

I’d like to thank everybody who made this possible. And – most importantly – I’d like to thank our users … it’s the best feeling in the world to receive hundreds upon hundreds of emails from people telling you that they absolutely LOVE your product.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! 😀
