Best Writing App

Werdsmith is, by far, the best writing app I have ever used. It is simple, easy to navigate, and is the only app that has ever been able to keep up with my quick typing. The options for creating and tracking projects by word count is a fabulous feature, especially for bloggers and freelancers.

The only reason I am not rating this 5-star is because of the lack of sorting options for your projects and ideas; everything is auto-sorted from most recent to oldest. This is all well and good, except when you have a project or novel that requires multiple entries, and you'd like to keep them separate. For this reason, I suggest adding an option for sorting and organizing by folders. I would even pay an extra fee to be able to do this, because no other writing app seems to have this rather necessary feature!

Werdsmith Rocks!

I love this app with its ability to write your ideas and turn them into a project! I had to restart my phone because a lot of software had caused it to mess up and I thought I had lost all of my projects and writings on werdsmith but when I downloaded the program again and signed in, all my writings and projects were there! The only complaint I have is that it is hard for me to transfer some of my writing ideas over to the project side and then when I load the projects onto my website I don't have a history of where they are kept! I also have a problem with getting the top page to come back so I can go back and forth from ideas to projects! If someone can contact me and let me know how it is I can go about doing this it would make my experience with Werdsmith much better!


I was recently making a switch from another writing app to this one, this one is way better by far. And heck, I only got it today! The option for creating a title instead of writing something on the first line of the note on the notes app then pressing return automatically adds a few points, but the fact that there is an option to change an idea into a project by adding a word goal is pure genius. The word count function is amazing, the title naming aspect is as well, and you can even change fonts and colors! This app just blows everything else out of the water. Werdsmith is way too amazing.
