It’s great, except...

This is a great writing app for writers, it’s really easy to use and the goal setting and chapter breaks are very, very helpful.
The only issue is having to pay for formats.
But otherwise great.

I couldn't save anything bc I didn't start my free trial.

I couldn't save anything, trust me I tried. It wouldn't let me start a free trial so I lost everything. The price is too high anyway. I'm sorry but it sucks. Ok well it's a good writing app if you have a lot of money to spend. I'm deleting it tho.

Not worth it

I used to like writing on this app, until I ran out of space. Unless you buy a membership, the app only lets you keep six projects. I would rather just write in the notes app for free, than pay monthly for more space here and just about the same experience. There are plenty of better writing apps out there. Don't waste your time with this one.

Developer Response ,

Hey there! Unlike Notes (which is made by the largest company in the history of the world) we're a one-man team and the membership fee is what makes Werdsmith possible. Werdsmith is definitely not for everyone, but if you like having your ideas and projects separate, seeing your progress towards your writing goal as you type, daily writing stats, a writers portfolio, live formatting of headers, bold and italics, novel editing tools, screenwriting features, a passcode lock, a daily writing reminder, sharing features, your own personalised writing portfolio and five different themes - we think you'll like Werdsmith. Otherwise it's totally the same as Notes ;)
