Customer Reviews

Misleading marketing

This guy is great at pumping out apps that have potential, and then completely abandoning them. Look at his other apps…lots of bugs, but no updates since 2012. I will never support this developer again, and I suggest you stay far away from his products, too. There are so many features he promised for this app, and mysteriously never got around to implementing. What a sham.

Promising, And It Looks Like It Is So Much More Stable

This is a great app with a number of cool features.
The folding features are incredibly helpful, as is the pomodoro feature and todo list feature.

very versitile app

great app for organizing writing ideas, love the timers feature :)
