Ratings and Reviews
I have now bought this app twice and they still want more money
I am going to leave what I originally wrote just so people can see why you responded but I would like to follow it up. The restore purchases thing did work. The app is now working correctly with all of my features restored. Sorry for the knee jerk reaction. I love the app and would highly recommend it. Also thank you for the speedy reply. I really do love your app and use it for everything from list making to novel writing and everything in between.
I thought Wordsmith was a fantastic app. I even bought and paid for it. Originally I paid the 2.99 to own the app and all its features. Awhile later when things changed I paid 4.99 to own the app and all its features. Today when I went to use the app I discovered I have had a limit set on how many items I can save and that if I want to use all the features of the app that I have now paid for twice that I will need to pay a monthly subscription. I am very disappointed and will be looking for a new writing app
Hi, thanks for letting us know about this. This can occasionally happen in the app where it doesn't recognise that your membership has been renewed. All you need to do is restore purchases and the button to do this can be found in the "Help" section of the app. This should fix the problem but if you're having any more issues please let us know or feel free to get in touch with us on email via the app. Thanks - Nicole
Brilliant, but novels can't actually be written on it
Werdsmith has helped me so much as I pursue my love for writing. It's like having a little computer on my phone! I travel a lot, so it's been really nice to be able to use my phone instead of lugging around my laptop when I just need to pack light for hiking or something. If you're a writer, I greatly encourage you to get Werdsmith.
The thing that makes me frustrated, though, is that if you're planning to actually write an entire novel on werdsmith, you won't be able to go over about thirty thousand words before this happens: every five minutes or so, it will lag, then freeze, then and crash. And the longer my novel got, the more often this happened. Now, on the tail end of my first draft, it crashes about every sixty seconds, so I guess werdsmith just didn't believe that their users would ever actually write novels, because no matter how many updates come out, the problem is never fixed.
It makes me sad.
And also, the membership costs to add themes and take off the writing limit?
That is just frickin ridiculous.
Favorite writing app!
I've had this app for about two years now and absolutely love it. Being able to put down ideas easily without having to bring out the notebook and pen is great. I think I will decide to pay the $4.99 a month because it's worth it, Microsoft word is now making you pay for your work and that is just not fair to me personally and it's cheaper for this route. Love the app and will sure keep using it for more years to come!
Update: I still stand by my review and love this app so much! The only criticism I would give is the error of writing on a laptop and app, it doesn’t update as quickly as I’d like. I wish somehow it would update and save every word written as I go on laptop and app together. But other then that, it’s the best app for writing out there.
