What’s Quip? It’s a modern word processor that works great on my laptop, tablet, and even my phone. I first heard about Quip in 2013, probably from a tech blog article. I went to quip.com, read Quip’s About Us page, and saw that their founding team worked at Google and Facebook. I signed up and started using it to start up a non-profit, the Boise Modern Quilt Guild. Soon afterwards the Quip team reached out to me, asking how I liked Quip and if I had any feedback. I happily replied, since I came to love the product. By the way, Quip team member Josh rocks! Such a friendly and approachable guy. Anyway, a few months later I’m sitting here writing a Quip guest post 🙂
When I need to collaborate with someone on a document, Quip is the place I go. I can share documents and folders so we can edit and brainstorm together in a simple workspace, and we can see a complete history of our revisions and comments. I also like to use Quip on my own. It’s a simple and fresh app that’s a joy to use.
Check out my guest post on the Quip Blog: Starting a non-profit, organizing a school curriculum and more, all using Quip. I share how we use it to collaborate at the Boise Modern Quilt Guild, and how I use it for homeschool organization, writing sewing patterns, and book writing.
Thanks, Quip folks, for an awesome free product!
