After a 10 year absence the best macOS Japanese word processor app has finally returned. egword Universal 2.1 is available for download from the Mac App Store in Japan. The price is ¥7,800 with a special offer of ¥3,800 until April 30.
egword Universal was a major re-write of the original Japanese DTP workhorse app and the world’s first macOS word processor built top to bottom with the then brand new CoreText framework in 2007 featuring the very best Japanese typography. Norihito Hirose of MONOKAKIDO bought the rights to his program in late 2017 and has been hard at work bringing the code up to date.
Read my profile of egword Universal and its long journey back to the marketplace. I look forward to reviewing it, again.
Congratulations Hirose san!
