Looks promising but also very bare. There is no styling available (maybe you could use your own HTML code) and you also can't simply add images. Please tell me if I am wrong. I am always interested in good manual writing apps as ScreenSteps is dead for me (no, I don't want to pay a monthly fee) and Clarify can't build manuals (only steps, no chapters/manuals). At the moment I am using MacSnapper which seems to be the only tool that can handle all my needs easily. I also thought about using Ulysses for my manuals but you will have to prepare your images in a different app. So to conclude: Answers isn't meant to be a manual writing app, it's a simple FAQ/Help Document (Apple Help Files) tool. If you are an app developer, this app may be of interest. If you are looking for a manual writing app, it is too basic.

This is looking promising. Plain easy interface that works fine. But it lacks themes. The options seems to be available but it doesn't do anything. Will buy this for sure when it hits the Appstore.

Thanks for your comments :)

You are correct, Answers is very bare right now - it just launched. I certainly intend to add more themes over time, but I wanted to get the tool out first. I encourage everyone to make their own themes if they don't see what they like, I've tried to make it simple enough to do :)

I don't think Answers will be the manual writing app you are looking for. It's geared more for creating Help Books for software, or FAQs for websites. I don't have intentions to add PDF support in the near future. I also don't think Answers will translate well to print.

I'm sorry Answers doesn't suit your needs, and I thank you for taking a realistic look at the software.

Best,
