Where is Writely?

writely It’s funny how bloggers insist on calling Google’s new presentation app Presently. There’s no trace of using this name on any Google affiliated blogs. It wouldn’t be logical, after killing off the Writely brand.

But if Presently perseveres, could we see Writely back? And what does it mean for Google Spreadsheet? Calcly? How about when Google finally releases JotSpot? Jotly? Or would they pick the more toungue-in-cheek GSpot? 🙂

  1. There have been – and still are – a few references to the name “Presently” in the code for the Presentation feature of Google Docs. That’s why people have been calling it Presently.

    Likewise, the Google Docs incarnation of Writely was referred to as “Leftly” in the code. Geddit? 😀

  2. I know, but that was *prior* to the announcement.

  3. GSpot is good – except that a lot won’t be able to find it.

    And Talkly?
