Ratings and Reviews
This is, in my opinion, one of the best writing organization apps that I’ve ever used. It’s especially helpful that there’s a website, since I write almost exclusively on my laptop. It would be nice if there was a better scrolling method on the phone, though. It doesn’t continue to move after you move your finger off of the screen, which will most likely be pretty annoying for longer manuscripts.
I would also appreciate it if you could copy characters and places from stories to add to other ones. That would be wonderful, because otherwise you have to copy and paste the text.
Adding characters that are underlined in blue is super helpful, because you can see at a glance which of them are in a certain scene. I like the corkboard feature, too! Just remember to save before you close the tab.
Even so, it’s well worth your time, especially since it’s free. I’d recommend using it to plan out your stories, and write using Google Docs or Word or some other software, personally, though I’m sure it’s fine for writing as well.
Issue with reordering chapters
This app does its job well, and it keeps everything organized. However, when I try to reorder the chapters I’ve created, I can’t scroll up on the list because the chapter moves around with my finger. It moves if you touch and drag on any part of the tab it belongs to. Even the orange “add new scene” thing moves by itself when touched, which is very frustrating. Please fix this issue. (Maybe make only the spot with the 3 bars in the corner “grab-sensitive” and everything else for scrolling.)
This would be an awesome app if it didn’t kick me out after only a month of using it. I lost all my data. It is very frustrating. I tried going to the website, and there is no way to reset my password. I logged onto one of their forms and it said there is no account made under my Email address. I wish there was a way to contact somebody to help me get back into my account. I really don’t want to lose all my chapters in the book outline for nothing.
