• Pleasurable writing experience using Ambient Writer

With a full typewriter virtual keyboard, typing a novel first draft or short stories in Ambient Writer is a real pleasure.

This is not a glitch on my device only.
1. No backspace? I know the previous comment already said this but WHAT THE FRACKLEFRUDGE how do I write without a backspace?
2. No room for modification. No font, keyboard, chapter, etc changes because you can't. I swiped the screen by accident and skipped a chapter I wrote and I can't get back to it... also the keyboard is unusable
3. Not ambient at all. At. All.
4. Don't get this app

Oh my god it's hilar ,

Hate it hate it

I'm a writer and I try to write on my device and it's very haired I press W and it gives me L, I press M it gives me Z, and there is no backspace and writing chapters you can't write much only a sentence a day! Don't get please just don't
