Great little writing tool!
I love tools like these for writers. Love the favorite tool - I can save lots of names when I'm in the first stages of a story. Would like more control over each name - like I'd like to have different press for each field so can make a German, Scandinavian Irish person or have a girl with a Scottish first name, Arabic middle name and Celtic surname. Would love way more categories like behind the name. Great app, tho and awesome for .99. What about a tool to randomize from your address book? ;)
Great tool for writers. I've always had trouble coming up with names for my characters. I love that I can choose the sex and nationality for a character. Very nice. I like to make several lists one of male and one of females. That way I have them handy.
It is a great app. I write fan fiction so this really helps me a lot. It really is a great app to have. For me coming up with names it so hard so this is a great tool.
I could opt for a back button and more nationalities like Irish.
