It’s fine for my story’s but it can glitch

My story writing is fine and I love being able to access this app and use it to type as they would of done ages ago. I think this app is great which is why I have it four stars. However, I knocked off one star because it keeps putting it on a list of different types of the letter that I picked. So I have to type as quickly as possible - which can get tiring. Thanks for others advice. It still does its job and works well and I think it works nicely with my typing. I am proud to have the opportunity to have this app!😊

Simple and elegant

If you are looking for a simple typewriter style app that creates pdf letters you can email or save in notes this is perfect. I have noticed in other reviews that people have given less stars because of what the app does but if its not what you are looking for then of course you will be disappointed but it does everything it says in the description. I like that there is an option to buy other styles of typewriter if you want for fun but if like me you don’t wish to it doesnt bug you to buy them like some apps with pop ups etc. You can only create one document at a time but with multiple pages and the option to share it thats all I need so for me the app is perfect. Once i have shared/saved it i can just delete it to make another document. I really like this app and cannot belive how lucky i was to just find it out of the blue when searching for word games because it picked up on “word” and suggested this. Thank you creator for making such a simple but awesome app that i will have fun using again and again at home and at work.

Disappointing So Far

I’ve not been using this application for long but I’m disappointed and I so wanted it to work well. I’m using an iPad Pro with the fold out keyboard and I had high hopes. I’ve found that as I type along a line when I reach the end of the line and the bell rings it then rings again for EVERY key press. This is just awful and is exactly what a typewriter does NOT do, it rings once and they you start a new line manually. I’ve tried putting in a hard return at the end of a line to stop the bell ringing by going to a new line manually and Ok, this stops the bell but when you later generate a PDF of your work you have a load of incorrectly aligned text which is essentially useless. I can’t see any controls to correct this behaviour, you can keep typing with the bell ringing with every key stroke and let it wrap itself but that is just too annoying for words. Best option seems to be to turn off the sound but then what’s the point?
