Now it's fixed!
The app tells you BEFORE DOWNLOAD that you need premium. That should not be a surprise to ANYBODY, as it is in the app description. The interface is nice, writing is easy, you have plenty of room. However, there are currently glitches that require restarting the app constantly, saying "you need to be logged in to do that" over and over and over. I hope that gets fixed soon, then my rating would be 5 stars.
EDIT: With the new version everything is working much better! This is a fantastic, convenient, and well organized app, I LOVE using it. Yarnys lack of formatting in its browser form translates very well into app-form. And as I said, there is a lot of room to read your work and write.
Best money ever spent
After losing an entire novel to a hard drive crash and then the backup on my thumb drive went kablooey I was in tears. Yarny has saved my bacon. It's nice having someplace I can back all my work up to. Not to mention I love how you can keep track of your characters, places, and important notes about your story with snippets. This app is an author's best friend. Being able to write a novel on my iPad had been life saving. Love it!
Very neat and useful
This is great for when I can't get to my computer but have an idea I need to jot down.
Also read the description. Yes you need a premium account, but for $4 a month I think it's totally worth it. I mean, all my story ideas are fully organized in one portable place that I can pull up on any computer OR on my phone. I love it.
