Ratings and Reviews
I bought this app on a whim, because I liked the idea of a dedicated application for poetry composition. It works fairly well for this, and has some nice features, as well as a well-done interface. No doubt the developer put a lot of time and effort into it.
That said, I am disappointed that the rhyming dictionary, etc. is not actually stored on the device, but on the internet. This means you have to be connected, via 3G or WiFi, if you want to use the program's main features. I realize that this concern might be moot for a lot of people, but I probably wouldn't have purchased the application had I known this was the case. (Really, though, for $6.99, one can't complain much....)
Also, I can't help but notice that "poet's pad" seems virtually identical to another of the developer's offerings, "songwriter's pad," even to the point that dialogue boxes in the application say things like "new song" rather than "new poem." Still, it promises to be a useful and valuable application, if you can live with the connectivity requirements.
The FIRST app that I could truly call a "rip-off".
Most Apps do what they claim to do, sometimes extremely well, sometimes not so well. Pages, Numbers, Kindle, GoSkyWatch are great apps and cost $10 or less. There are some great apps that are free. Many very good ones cost a buck. This one cost $10 - the same as Pages - and is nearly worthless. I mean this is a POETRY WRITING app that has a truly worthless rhyming dictionary. You can Google "rhyming dictionary" and instantly get at least two fast efficient on-line rhyming dictionaries. This app frequently comes up with NO rhyme at all or maybe two or three words. Use one of the other online dictionaries by double tapping while in this app and you get perhaps 100 words for the same query. On top of this, instructions are absent, and the entire app is awkward to use. I resent the fact that I have to write this terrible review to warn others away. I really think Apple was asleep at the switch on this. It should never have got past their QC.
Good but can be great
As a writer I was intrigued by the possibility of how well this app Help me in the writing process. I found the advertised tools to be useful, but I'd like to see an option to write freely without stanzas for different formats. That would make this app even better.
Also there is a bug relating to the key board. I found that in certain situations the key board gets stuck in place and doesn't respond to the key which retracts it. This happened twice while I was using the app.
I will be happy to give this potentially Great app 5 stars once those issues are addressed.
