Helps make wireframes and visual designs more useful

Any time a wireframe or visual design calls for dynamic text, I use Littleipsum to generate the character count allowed, and add that count after… so like, "Maecenas faucibus mollis interdum. - 35.” This way you get 4-5 padded spaces, and clear requirements for what the design was built for. Makes it easier to align as you’re going through review with various stakeholders. “Oh, I need more than 35 characters…” Too easy to see the issue, fix the issue, and get things to launch that much more smoothly. Great tool!

Great App, Use it Almost Daily, Hoping for One Update

Great, simple, well made. The one small thing I really wish it had, which would then make it a perfect 5-stars in my mind, is an option to always start sentences with the literal “Lorem ipsum dolor set amet.” Just a checkbox to always start with those five words, which user could toggle on/off.

Most of the time I’m using lorem ispum text, I’m using to purposefully call out where final copy is missing, and using the first five words helps do that. So in using this app, I most of the time end up adding those five words in. A simple option to always start sentences that way would be tremendously helpful.

So handy for designers

Everytime I get a new mac, its one of those apps I will need to download as soon as I start a new project. So handy and I love the quick select options.

Only request, could there be an option to pick number of words but in a sentence structure just like how you pick the number of words at the top but for one sentence (capitalize the first letter of the first word and add a period at the end).
