How to Install on Your PC, Mac, iOS, Chromebook or Android

Welcome to Atticus. One of the significant features of Atticus is that you can install a Progressive Web App (PWA) onto your computer, iOS device, Chromebook, or Android. That way, you can access Atticus on your device in a jiffy.  

Plus, if you do this, you can open up a project and then be able to disconnect from the internet and keep writing or formatting in that project. You'll only need to reconnect to the internet to either change projects or format. Plus, once you do reconnect, it will sync up with the system. 

So, with that, let's begin in getting you setup:
