I wish I could change the names...also unable to save

This is an okay app, it does what it says it does and serves its purpose. I just wish you could change the names of a character once you’ve generated them like you can everything else! I like to use the angel generator, and I’ll get a perfect name for a kind and gentle character I’m making, but with the title “the destroyer”, which I then can’t change. This does seem a relatively minor thing, but it’s my main problem so far.

Edit: New main problem, either some things are very unclear or the characters straight up don’t save. I can’t find any information about this anywhere, so I assume I’m doing something wrong. I don’t know what the little ribbon-looking thing in the top right corner is, but it probably has something to do with saving. There should be a help button in the app, because I’m completely lost here.

Edit 2: I feel that I can’t use this app until I know how saving works. None of my characters save, and I can’t deal. It just isn’t fun.

Pretty good

This is helpful to me because I am often stuck on characters and I like writing. It is also fun and I like the fact that you can change the characters if you save them.

Misleading Purchase Options

I like this app, so I decided to purchase a bundle, firstly it comes up in dollars for $5.99, but does not exchange into pounds and charges £5.99. Bit cheeky but ok. I decided to buy the Genres bundle, under this came Pets, Wizards, Assassins etc. You don’t get this however, you get the the addition of "modern children", "modern families" etc. NONE of those listed in the bundle under genres. Very misleading. I will be requesting a refund from Apple.
