Featured in MakeUseOf’s “4 iPhone/iPad Apps For Brainstorming Writing Ideas, Plots, & Characters”

Name Dice has received numerous 5-star reviews from writers of all ages and levels!

“I have NEVER been able to come up with names out of the blue when I'm in full writing mode! Sometimes I even put symbols in the text for names so I don't have to interrupt the flow of the story. With Name Dice, problem solved, quickly and easily. There's no complicated thing you need to do to open or close the app. Just a couple of taps and you have a random name for your character before you can say 'Holy Shakespeare!'” - E D Stewart

“This app is definitely one of my favorites. I've never really been that good with creating names for anything but the app more than makes up for my weak point. Most if not all names fit together perfectly and sound natural. There are no forced or absurd names each name is so strong that I feel as if the character practically comes to life as soon as I read it.” - Keystat

This app makes really no sense. The names are WAY too random and there’s no way to filter them! Delete this app! Begone, foul nonfilter!

Amazing

It's fantastic

Quick & Simple

I really hate getting into a short story and stopping DEAD, because my brain can't think of any names (that I don't already relate to people.)
This is fantastic for this, even if you don't like one part of it, roll again until you do.
I agree there could be some filtering option, but as it's so quick just to flick through, it's easy enough just to find a name that suits your needs.
