What is the history and popularity of the app?

Agilewords was founded early in 2007 by Fabrice Talbot. Prior to creating Agilewords, Talbot was employed as a consultant for Fortune 500 companies throughout the United States and Europe. Some of his most prominent clients included HP, Lexus, Canon, AIG and Kaiser Permanente. Today, Agilewords helps many users review, refine and finish their document projects on time.

What are the differences to other apps?

Agilewords makes it much easier for users to collaborate on a document project. The user can upload their document and invite their team or group to review it. Each user can post feedback or make changes which are tracked. Each member can see what feedback their team mates left, who made what changes and what the document currently looks like.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Agilewords website uses an earthy beige and green color scheme complimented by deep blue. The website is highlighted by large headed figures that help users visualize the service offered by the application. The actual document editing area includes a list of users and their recent comments along the left hand side of the page. The document itself makes up the remainder of the viewing area. Edits are noted in varying colors and users can immediately post comments using a box at the bottom of the document. The user can toggle the comment view by either messages or pages, which offers greater flexibility for longer documents.

How does the registration process work?

New users can begin a free trial of Agilewords by clicking the green and orange “Start a Free Trial” button near the center, right hand side of the page. No credit card information is required to begin the free trial. The user is asked to provide a file or select an example file to try from the three offered by Agile Words. The form also requests a desired Agilewords URL, email address (which is used to log in to the document) and a password. The user must also check the terms of service and privacy policy agreement box found at the bottom of the form before submitting their details for review. After doing so, the user is asked to check their email inbox for a confirmation message which must be accessed to activate the account.

What does it cost to use the application?

The free trial of Agilewords is available with access to all functionalities, including SSL encryption. This is intended to change when the application introduces its subscription plans, which is currently scheduled for April of 2011. The plans will include a per author rate which is not yet specified. The three subscription plans will start at one author and go up to over five authors. The website states that base level plans will begin at around $24 per month.
