Fonts Galore, New Entries Page, and More!

Hi Penzu lovers!

It’s been a really long time since we posted here, and even longer since we’ve updated our web application. You’ll be pleased to hear that we have made some cool improvements today—for Pro and Free users alike. Read on!


We’ve always had better fonts for Pro users, but we’ve extended the list of fonts to 18 gorgeous hand-picked typefaces for you to enjoy. If you aren’t a Pro user, what are you waiting for? Upgrade now and start expressing yourself!



We’ve refreshed our entries page and made some big improvements to the UI. For one, it’s a lot cleaner now. Less ugly links and buttons to distract you. Check out the before and after:





Much better, right? We consolidated all links into three dropdown lists: Select Entries (All, This Page, None); Date Filter (View entries in a certain time frame); View (Trashed Entries, All Tagged Entries, All locked Entries). We also cleaned up the search field and button—some people weren’t finding it!

More on this new Date Filter dropdown: now you can easily view entries for either a pre-set date or a custom date range. So if you’re looking for an entry from last week, last month, or the first week of 2009, you can do that with a few clicks.


Previously, if you wanted to change your email address, all you had to do was go to your Account page, enter a new address, and click submit. That could be bad if your account gets in the wrong hands. An intruder could simply change your email address and block you out. And worse, they could email us with a request to permanently delete your account.

We’ve changed that now. Every time you want to change the email address associated with your account, you must enter a special code which we send to you via email. Just make sure no one gets into your email account!!

So hopefully these little changes will make your writing experience more enjoyable. We’ve got a TON more on the way, so stay tuned!

    The date filter is an excellent addition. I don’t know if it was a response to a request I made last month but if it was, that was a fast response! And if it was, way to anticipate our needs. You are doing a great job at delivering value for your user community.
