PERSONALIZE YOUR WRITING STUDIO
Make Werdsmith truly yours with custom fonts and themes.
Werdsmith is free but we offer some simple, optional, one-time in-app purchases:
You can use almost every feature without paying a dime, but there is a limit to how many projects you can work on at once. This one-time in-app purchase removes the limit, forever. It also helps support Werdsmith so we can continue updating and improving the app!
More creative at night? Writing ritual set at 1AM? Try our Dark Theme. Or personalise your writing studio with a beautiful Sepia Theme. Themes are available as separate one-time in-app purchases.
Thanks to the writers who've supported Werdsmith over the years! We couldn't do it without you.

What's New in Version 3.6
Hello there! Tons of awesome little changes in this update to make Werdsmith better for you. The highlights include:
- Print your projects directly from the app. Just tap the Info button, then Export > Print.
- You can send projects to others via AirDrop, and import .txt or .md files from emails into Werdsmith.
- You can now unlock your writing studio with TouchID (only for devices that support this feature.)
- We've improved the project menu. You can now just type in your word goal, no more sliding. (Thanks for your patience on this one!)
- We've added a live-updating word count to the main editing screen, so it's faster to check how long your project is.
- We've moved the font options to the main menu, next to the themes.
- The editing screen's font size is now set to your device's font size. You can change this in Settings > General > Accessibility > Larger Text.
- The screen to edit your profile info has been moved to the Options menu.
- The reading length for your project is now in the project menu, under the word goal.
- We've added a back button to the editing screen, for the lost ones among you.
Thanks for supporting Werdsmith! If you like this update, please give us a 5-star rating in the App Store to help us support more features and future updates.
A Few Hiccups That Really Hinder A Great Concept
The main problem with this app is its keyboard stalls and inability to scroll fluently, which really disrupts the flow of writing. As the writer types, and nears the bottom of the document, the page won't auto-scroll upward, leaving the words to disappear behind the keyboard until the user manually closes it out, then re-opens it. This is a huge flaw because it's exceptionally distracting when trying to write. If this problem is fixed, this could really be a decent writing app.
The recent updates causes frequent crashes when trying to export a document. It seems like the more this app changes, the more it worsens.
I love wordsmith, I've had it for almost a year now and I'm very satisfied with it. However, the new update took away a few things I found very useful. There is no longer any indication of how long whatever you wrote takes to read and on my iPhone I cannot change the lettering size anymore. I write an online story and each post I make has to be 10 minutes long. But other than that, it's a great app!
I got this app a few days ago to write my wattpad stories on since its app is so glitchy and I love it! The only thing I've noticed is that the fingerprint lock doesn't work. I have reset the app multiple times and it lets me in without using the fingerprint scanner. No big deal, but just thought I'd let you know :)
