Broken twice. Lost writing.
Despite having backed up to Dropbox, when the writing app wouldn't open, the last saved was months previous.
The app developed a fault. It started by freezing on a page, then would flash on for a few seconds and go off back to home screen.
Emailed app, no answer.
I took it to a PC expert. They updated, found saved work but months worth missing, so even though I was clicking back up to Dropbox, it wasn't. Uninstalled, reinstalled. Then I had to start by scratch, and a month later it did the same thing again. As an author with deadlines I can do without this. Finding a different app. Still no reply to my, or PC mans,emails.
3 years worth of writing and a lot of it lost. In drop box there were titles but no body of work with them.
If you carry on using it, don't just rely on Dropbox. Copy and paste it on an email to yourself. Don't rely on just emailing the link to doc, as it won't open if app breaks.
I like it but...
I have a major issue with the app. Don't get me wrong, it is good and great for when I'm out and garner inspiration to write. Last night I accidentally cut nearly 8000 words and there is no undo button. I was very annoyed and will not use the app until there is either an undo button or a confirmation of delete button.
Will keep an eye on this though and will upgrade my score if necessary.
Don't Buy It
This app is literally EXACTLY like Notes. The only difference is that there is a dictionary and thesaurus however i have already downloaded the FREE WordWeb app which combined with Notes is the same as this app. DONT BUY IT.
