Compact, fast-loading, but still powerful and efficient word processor that comes with a rich feature set for editing documents or creating them from scratch.
Notepad and WordPad might be the word processors that are packed by default in all Windows flavors, yet they have long stopped sufficient for day-to-day needs of expert users. There are many third-party alternatives you can try, and Atlantis Word Processor is one of them.
The first time you run this application, you get asked if you want to spend some time to modify its GUI to your liking. You can choose between classic toolbars or tool bands, adjust the icons' size and their spacing, hide or show several additional toolbars.
You can preview these changes in real-time, thus helping you come up with a GUI perfectly tailored to your own tastes for creating text documents or editing existing ones (TXT, RTF, DOC, DOCX, ODT, COD, WRI).
Just like other similar tools, once you select a block of text, you can change its formatting to italic, bold, underline or strikethrough, modify the lettercase, while also tampering with the colors of the font and of the highlight.
You can also choose a different font type or heading, depending on your necessities.
When you are satisfied with your document, you can either save it as TXT, RTF, DOC, DOCX or COD, or you can export it to EPUB and create an e-book. You can also save it as a web page or a ZIP archive, then send it via email without leaving Atlantis Word Processor.
A nifty function is converting multiple documents from one format to another in a single operation.
In a nutshell, Atlantis Word Processor is a feature-packed utility that can meet the needs of both professional and beginner writers. Due to its highly customizable GUI, everyone can create an environment they feel comfortable in so they can focus on their projects.

A simple, old-school text editor equipped with an abundance of paragraph and text manipulation functions, different hotkeys and more.
Amongst the first activities you could perform on a computer was writing. Basic text editors made it possible to organize simple documents and print them out on connected devices. Now, it’s all complicated and modern text editors like Atlantis Word Processor Lite want to integrate as many features as possible, making overall work rather time consuming and confusing at times.
Probably the first thing that strikes you when launching the application is the rather outdated interface that seems pulled out of the last decade. There aren’t any other themes to choose from, nor options to modify colors for that matter, but only move, remove, and add toolbar elements.
This simplicity in design doesn’t take you long to understand, so let’s say it gives a plus to accommodation. Most of the toolbar buttons are those you find in almost any self-respecting text editor. There are a few others that aim to give more flexibility to your work.
If you’re using the application simply to write down text and use it somewhere else, than all goes well and you can start adding characters, symbols, use copy-paste functions, format text, align paragraphs, and everything else you already know how to do.
The application comes with a few features of its own, but they don’t bring anything special to the whole operation. These are only some variations of alignment options, copy functions or paragraph manipulation, which you won’t use that often.
What’s more, file support leaves a lot to be desired. In the setup process, you’re asked whether or not to associate it with RTF files, with other supported ones only counting as DOC, and plain TXT, both for import and export.
On an ending note, Atlantis Word Processor Lite comes with good intentions and suffices basic to average text editing needs. However, it’s specialty is not to be overlooked, but the lack of greater file support and more flexibility almost renders them useless. Overall, it makes for an old-school text editor you can take wherever you go due to portability.

The improved version of a Unix app called Vi, this program is suited for coding and programming, featuring a simple and effective code and string-compatible structure.
Don't be fooled by Vim's notepad-like appearance. It's not a simple or basic program at all. Quite the opposite. This small application is basically an improved version of the Vi app included with all Unix systems.
The trick here is that it includes Vi commands, plus a suite of new and more advanced ones. It's an application that was created with developers and programmers in mind. By all means, it is not a word processor. It's a tool for individuals working with text as codes or strings.
If you've dealt with Vi or with Notepad, for that matter, this program will seem very familiar. Don't be fooled by that feeling, because the bottom line is it's neither. Tools included with this program relate to text wrapping, line counting, indenting styles, and so on. Each of these particular actions has a command attached to it.
This ultimately means that you can control this app just by using your keyboard. It, of course, implies you know these codes by heart. Regardless, the command aspect is a useful feature for developers and programmers because it speeds things up. A command looks like "set: nu!" where the first half is the general command and the second half is the more specific action.
No matter how you look at this app, you can't just use it for simple text writing. It's not that good of a word editor mainly because it wasn't supposed to be that. The way you have lines arranged, the absence of features that deal with page adjustment and text improvement come to support this idea once again.
On the other hand, the highlighting features, the commands, and this semi-automation side to the program, all leading one to the idea that Vim was indeed created to serve individuals with advanced computer knowledge. There's no doubt that Vim has successfully managed to step in the shoes of its Unix predecessor, Vi.

An online time-tracking and screenshot monitoring software that keeps the employer up-to-date about the employee's work while respecting his privacy.
If you own a business and need to check your employees' work without invading their intimacy, by using spy tools without their knowledge and consent, Monitask might help you. This tool not only requires the consent of the employee, but it also gives him a lot of control over the tracking process.
To set up a communication channel between the employer and the employee is very intuitive. The application/client has to be installed on the employee’s computer, while the employer needs only to log in to the online dashboard.
The executable has a compact and simple UI, and all the employee has to do is to start a timer whenever he is working on a project. While the timer is counting, the application will also snap a desktop screenshot, which brings visual proof of the worker’s activity. However, if the Stop Tracking button is hit, no info or screenshots are sent to the online UI.
The Web dashboard is where the employer logs in to receive updates about the team’s progress. Information about the timeline, notes, team members, projects and reports are accessible from there. Furthermore, if you open the Company Settings menu, you get access to a number of tweaks. You can modify both screenshots count and activity tracker, and also set up the idle/offline intervals.
For some users, the screenshot option may sound too drastic but the transparency is not lacking. This can be verified by accessing the client’s settings and looking for the “Notify me when screenshots are taken” entry. If this option is checked, you will always know whenever screen captures are performed.
All in all, Monitask is a simple application that can help companies or private employers to keep track of their team/employee’s work. This app has nothing in common with the intrusive spy tools that invade user privacy, as the outgoing data is mostly controlled by the employee.
