Customer Reviews

great apps but with some bugs

BUG1: when I use a external keyboard, I want to use command key + right arrow to go to the end of the line, however, the cursor goes to one character before the end of the line instead.

BUG2: when I try to type in Chinese by PinYin (i.e. a input method using some combinations of english letters to type in specific Chinese characters), for example, I could type "ceshi" for the Chinese word "测试", but in Byword it shows "bdrgh" in the screen before the input method changes the letters into Chinese characters. I noticed that each letter is alphabetically one position before the correct one (like 'b' to 'c', 'd' to 'e'). Even when I try to type some English words in Chinese input method, it shows the way as I described above until I type in another space, then it becomes what they should be. However, this bug does not happen when I type in the first word of the line, I tried on both Chinese and English.

Frequent crashes

I have a large collection of text documents in my Dropbox account. On my iPhone 5S Byword frequently crashes, becomes unresponsive, and is very choppy scrolling. This is the only app I've had issues with. Very disappointed.

Favourite Writing App

I really love Byword on Mac and iOS. A great app for writing that lives on my homescreen.
