Ratings and Reviews
It's really useful for when you need inspiration but what annoys me is that you only get 55 credits to start and that only amounts to 3 decks at a maximum. There should be a way to earn credits by writing or by using the app for a multitude of days in a row.
Shameless money grab
When you open the app for the first time, you are ”gifted” 30 credits. You will quickly notice that you must use 10 of those credits to pay for the “discovery” deck, so you can ‘find out what kind of writer you are’. You have no choice, you MUST buy it.
NB: I already know what kind of writer I am - one who can see a money-making scam a mile off!
Having spent a third of your starter credits on a forced and, in my opinion, pointless deck, you only have enough to get one of the three decks that are now in your price range. If you buy the cheapest (“daily habit”, which just tells you how to keep a journal and most writers already know how to do that), you will only have 5 credits remaining, and there are 8 decks left to buy with prices between 20 and 50 credits each.
I can't speak for everyone, but I have better things to spend my money on than information I could probably find on any half-decent writing website.
Having enjoyed using Werdsmith I thought I'd download Unblock. The idea of helping you with creating new ideas and characters sounded great, but before I could buy I thought I'd give the free version a try. You get 55 free credits to choose a number of decks. Having done that, I went to the main page of the app to get started and the decks I had chosen were not showing. I didn't have any credits left having used them all up on the decks, so I can't really do anything. All available decks are the ones I hadn't chosen. I deleted and reinstalled the app but this did not solve the problem. I Twitted a message to Werdsmith 4 days ago for help and still waiting for a reply. Get back to me please!
