Worth it x🔁

I’ve had this app for a couple of years. It sits in the background, largely unused, until I’m in the middle of an intense writing session and don’t have time to play with coming up with names. It’s saved countless sessions from procrastination daydreams and supplied the names for most of the supporting characters in my novel.

BEST EVER

This app is so amazing! If you are a writer, you NEED this. (The extensive list of names is especially of use to me)
You must must MUST get this app!
Aaaand that’s all I have to say!

Great app but it puts my OCD into overdrive having it letterboxed.
