I Enjoy This App


I can see where it may be useful for writers block but the random suggestions it throws out is also a great way to get your brain moving and creating in general, plus, it's fun and at times informative and amusing when you reread the stuff you come up with. When you have a random prompt, in my opinion it gets your brain moving and sometimes totally off topic but, if have other projects to write since they are on your mind sometimes, you come up with the starting or the main idea you can rework at a later date and most of the work is already complete except for touch ups and making applicable to the topic, whatever it may be. I don’t use it to journal but those that may have a hard time getting their feelings out may find it useful as well.

A Good Idea But Lacks Follow-Through


I was really excited for this app. While it did get me writing consistently for about two weeks, a glitch caused the app to crash and I lost all of my work. An update was released that fixed the crashing issue, but when I tried to contact support to see if I could get my lost files back, I received no response. This was a few months ago. Thankfully, I backed up my files; otherwise, I would’ve been out of luck. I expected more from this app, particularly because I paid for it. Overall, it’s fine for small things, but I wouldn’t trust it for big projects because I lost some of my work.

Just write away...

I was waiting for a app that let me throw all of my ideas on digital paper. It's very useful when you don't have a notebook around you, just to create stories, poetry, ideas, and etc. Plus it tracks the amount of words you write, usage of app, set a goal for word count, and little bit extra. I just wish more features are added (but not much to complain).
