  • Experience of a semi-pro.

    I've been writing since I was in high school back in 1966 (Oh, my, isn't he dead yet??). I've been involved with many, many different types of recording the written word over the years (IT specialist since 1968) and I've found this app to be one of the easiest to use. I've had great success with this and am willing to recommend it to anyone who enjoys writing.

    Very well made
  • Good app but, a few mishaps

    By kpop trash 🅱️
    I was writing a novel and was at around 10,000 words. One night, I opened the app and saw that my entire writing piece was gone! I’m still not sure what happened but I was heartbroken. I tried getting it back by pressing the undo button but I couldn’t get it back. Other then that one incident, I find this app very useful! I recommend it but, please be careful! :D

    First of all, this app has probably been my favourite writing app of all time, really. I’ve tried many- and when I say many, I mean it- but non have compared to this. I’ve been using it for a year now and I absolutely adore it. My biggest pet peeve is the fact I can’t access midnight mode, since I do tend to write my stories very late in the night (8Pm-3AM) and I have to put up with putting eye drops in my eyes every 2 minutes because my eyesight is horrible. I have a big imagination, and I don’t like having limited projects but that isn’t a big problem of mine, since it helps me not procrastinate so much. I recently bought the membership and my laptop, now fixed, after an eternity of having it broken, actually has more use to it. If anyone is starting out in writing, or even a long time author, I highly recommend this app. It’s amazing, and the controls are easy to get the hang of (as well as the amazing text size option, I find myself being able to write better with smaller text). And, I would like to point out the French. Most apps have terrible translations, but this I find I can actually read without having a headache, which is great for me because I am a native French. Again, great app!

    I downloaded because of good reviews, but no. Nee money to enter. Writing is something I do for fun.

    I spent a lot of time use subheading and bold on a piece I am working on. I sent it to the publisher via email and not only did the headers disappear, so did all of my paragraphs and spacing. I read a few reviews that said you can’t email formatted work. If that is true, why is it an option to use? Does anyone have an answer for me? Aside from this (which at the moment is a pretty big issue for me) I like the app for small projects. Thanks
