Membership gives you other benefits too, like four extra themes, novel and screenplay writing tools, Werdsmith on your computer, and hundreds of writing prompts in the Unblock app.

Ratings and Reviews
As a starting writer this has had an effect of grace it makes this amazing
I want to be able to write more story’s and poems etc... but it doesn’t let me write more. Why is that? I really like this app but if I can’t write more then that’s just sad 😕
Developer Response ,
Hi, thanks for leaving your review. We don't have a feature which allows photos and videos to be added because we wanted Werdsmith to focus purely on the writing. Thanks - Nicole.
The creativity this app allows you to express is u believable! I'm writing a huge book right now on the free version! I'm gonna get full version tho
