Needs a way to save separate notes

Great prompts, but I feel like the app should be able to save all the notes or stories you write. There is only one note you can save... it would be more useful to save each note separately. You can email yourself the notes, but again it would be nice and if the app could save all the small files to find and refer to later.


I used to love this app... now crashes, cannot open.

I have had this app for a number of years. I recently bought an add-on and now I cannot launch the app. It gives me a JSON error about a beautify file or something very similar... please help! I'd like to use what I've paid for-- thanks!!!


Crashes constantly

Re-installed several times. Run-time error message then crashes. Useless. Want my $2.00 back. (Old review)

Installed version 3.6.9 on advice of developer. Works well now. Useful and fun. (New review)

Developer Response

So sorry for the problem with the crashes! We've just gotten version number 3.6.9 approved in the App Store that solves the problem.
