Ratings and Reviews
I like it but...
There isn't a lot of variety to the first lines and titles, and often it is difficult to make sense of the first lines. I dislike how there is no spell check on the notebook (it is very convenient for me to have auto correct), and how I can only type with my iPod when it's right side up, with the smaller keyboard. I also wish there was a way to go right to the notebook when coming across an exercise I'd like to use, or from the generators. Also, there are some contradictory things that get thrown together in the character sheets, and I wish there was a tad more information on those. I also agree with other users, a plot section would be awesome as well.
I already like this app quite a bit, but there is a lot of room for improvement! I say it is definitely worth getting, especially if there are more updates to come.
Plenty of Inspiration
For a few bucks, this app offers a lot. A great kickstarter when looking for ideas and to get your gears moving. The workshops are nice as they give ways for you to use the Triggers in a certain way. Saving prompts is great as well, considering everything generates at random, so you're not going to see the same one twice.
It seems it was translated to English, but only a few errors on that part. The only downside is when they invite you to visit their site on the Tips bar, their blog is in Spanish.
Other than that, great app.
Uninstalled magically from my device
This app uninstalled itself (or disappeared) from my device once I got a higher IOS system and updated the app. Maybe the developers took it off the App Store to put in their other $9.99 app? I think that's it. It did look like the update wasn't there anymore, so I guess I had some warning. Oh, well, I got my use out of this in the past.
I like this app, but there's quite a few spelling/grammatical errors.
I know the creator's first language isn't English, but if this app is meant to better our writing HIS writing should be better. [Better proof-read, at least. He doesn't make *that* many mistakes.]
All the characters are really old. Even if you're an adult writer, you'd have to make a kid character in there somewhere.
I'd love a plot line as well!
The last update was good. I'm thinking about deleting this app. It's not that inspiring. It would be great if there was more spice to the suggestions!
