Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic! Just don’t turn off iCloud
This app is perfect for writing on your phone. Word is a bit cumbersome due to having been built for a computer (and the want for a subscription), while Google Drive has a tendency to decide it knows how I want my stuff to be formatted. As such, if you’re like me and write stupid little things while bored, this app is extremely quick and effective. This new version even removed the lite version so you don’t have to be worried about which stories you can keep working on at any given moment.
On top of this, when I turned off iCloud and lost all of my writings because of it, their response was quick and thorough enough that I could figure out what went wrong where.
Word of the wise, don’t assume iCloud isn’t storing anything important and turn it off without actually checking to see what apps use it.
Too Good To Be True! I see that this is only the 3rd review posted, but it was very easy to give Compo 5 stars. The download size gives a hint to its simplicity, but the ease of use is a breath of fresh air in a time of complex apps taking 15 times the space on your device. The greatest bonus for me in its small size is that within 5 minutes I was using the app for exactly the reason I selected it - word processing. It is truly a joy to use it. After downloading and trying to survive the learning curve on several other WP apps, I deleted them. This app should come preloaded on all devices. It’s small, unobtrusive, and works extremely well.
Developers: Thank you - I think you have a winner.
