Let’s face it, no one enjoys filling out forms. Taking a paper document, figuring out how to get it correctly scanned to your computer, and adding in fillable fields is a chore almost every time we have to do it. Fortunately for anyone fed up with this status quo, this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, Fill.xyz, offers a solution that can make documentation simple and easy to do right from your phone.
Fill.xyz is the online destination for Fill, a document editing iOS app that allows you to digitally fill out forms, documents, and contracts with your iPhone. Simply scan your documents using your phone’s camera (or upload from Dropbox or Google Drive) and the app identifies any fill-in fields. You can then add a custom signature, highlight text, draw or add notes via the “pen”, stamp approval or notices, fill in checkboxes, or add icons. Best of all, everything you add into the document can be easily resized, moved around, re-styled, or deleted altogether, giving you even more control than you would have with a regular pen and paper.
When you save your custom details in Fill you can quickly add signatures to documents or have the app autofill common fields with your information (i.e. your name, address, and contact details.) Once you’ve finished editing your document you can quickly save it to your files or export it to send via your preferred method.
The creators of Fill are also the company behind iFax, the most popular mobile faxing app in the Apple store, so if you need to fax your document you can simply purchase credits from the Fill app and fax the pages right from your phone. Plus, you can trust you’re getting a quality app when you download Fill, as it has 4.5 stars in the App Store and is listed #158 in the list of most popular apps for business.
While it’s clear how powerful the Fill app is, standing out to users amidst the countless similar apps in the App Store still poses a challenge. With their memorable Fill.xyz URL and detailed website, Fill has a strong presence both in the App Store and on the web. Fill.xyz is an easy place to direct potential users who want to know more about the app and sends them to the right app in the store in one simple click.
Today, apps are one of the most common products businesses rely on for success. Yet while there are millions of users in the app store looking for services, there are also millions of other apps making it tough to get noticed. Creating a dedicated microsite for your app opens it up to the whole world, and with that recognition, there is endless potential to carve out your market, just like Fill.xyz.

Poetry has been an important form of self-expression for as long as the written word has been around. Classic writers may be the first poets that come to mind – Shakespeare, Dickinson, Whitman – but the internet has given a voice to a whole new wave of modern-day poets with an entirely fresh perspective, including the woman behind this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, KimmyWalters.xyz.
KimmyWalters.xyz is the online portfolio of San Diego-based writer Kimmy Walters. Described as “one of poetry’s brightest young things” by Dazed Magazine, Kimmy has already had two books of poetry published, Uptalk and Killer, before turning 30. You can also find her poems in a number of publications, including Peach Magazine, the New York Tyrant, and Queen Mob’s Tea House.
Kimmy first rose to literary Internet fame in a somewhat peculiar way. She amassed over 20,000 followers on Twitter after turning the senseless posts from a widely followed novelty account, @Horse_ebooks, into surprisingly profound poetry. As a Twitter account for Horse-Ebooks.com, @Horse_ebooks tweeted random phrases from the books and became widely known for its unintentionally amusing updates. Kimmy combed through the more than 16,000 nonsensical tweets to create poems that resembled her writing style. Since then, she’s been the mastermind behind viral tweets like this victorian therapy horse Buzzfeed dubbed “creepily accurate” and the in-flight dodecahedron that caused an internet uproar.
Published in 2015 by independent publisher Bottlecap Press, Kimmy wrote her first poetry collection Uptalk while she studied Linguistics in college. The title of the book refers to the rising inflection in which each clause or sentence ends like a question, a speech trend that is most commonly used by women. The science of language and its constant evolution heavily influenced the 68-page book, as Kimmy explores speech and feminism. Celebrated novelist Sheila Heti described Uptalk as “charming, inviting, beguiling and delightful poems in the language of someone who seems alive speaking refreshing riddles to herself.”
Experience the darker side of Kimmy’s work with her second poetry collection, Killer. Published in 2016, the book is influenced by an interest in modern mysteries, forensic science, and the years she spent in rural Missouri. Goodreads says the poems “seem to consider the world with a deep curiosity and a tinge of suspicion.” In one poem from the book, also entitled Killer, Kimmy finds the word “killer” carved into her closet and wonders if a murderer had previously lived in her residence, but decides that the 100-degree Missouri heat makes it too hot for her to care.
Go to KimmyWalters.xyz to explore her poetry and find links to purchase her books. You can follow Kimmy’s popular Twitter account, @ka_waltz, for almost daily doses of her unique humor.
