Just One Problem
Whilst I really, really enjoy the look, layout and execution of this app, there is one little glitch (at least I am assuming it is a glitch) which is totally ruining my ability to use this app. It doesn't scroll as I am writing. I can only ever see the top section of my work for that day, rather than be able to move back and forth within the body of it. What I end up doing is writing in a different app and then copy and pasting it into this app. It's incredibly frustrating and entirely puts me off using it. You REALLY need to get this fixed.
where have the sliders gone?
This app was really useful as I tend to write to strange deadlines with strange word counts and you could move the sliders to whatever you wanted. I like the motivational bits and the pop up messages when you've got far, but now the sliders have gone there's no point me using it any more. I don't want to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. The sliders were the best bit of this app and without them it's pretty useless.
Highly Broken Software
Good idea that would have been very useful but lots needs doing before it's worth anything. Lack of slider control when setting times and word counts and no scrolling when writing so 300 words into day one and I couldn't continue as I couldn't see the text I was typing.
