Don’t stop typing. If you do all your work will disappear and be gone forever.
Danger Notes is the ultimate writing tool to help fight writer’s block. Whether you are writing a term paper, an essay, a book, your best-man speech, promising rap lyrics or just free writing, Danger Notes will help you fight writer’s block by forcing you to keep writing in order to save your progress from being deleted.
The theory behind this wonderful writing tool, is that by pressuring you to keep writing, you will be forced to formulate an actual flow of written work instead of just staring at a blank document for 2 hours with no progress to show for. The more words you type the easier it will be to break past your writer's block and keep typing.
Break writer's block with Danger Notes.
-Updated to run efficiently on iOS 13

Works well, motivates you to write
I have not encountered any problems with this app so far. It is pretty basic, with a place to store notes and a place to write them. If you don’t write for a few seconds then a red bar shows up on the top of the screen (I have yet to lose any work, it is quite motivating :)) For those of you worried about losing work, you can also just type random letters/ words. The important thing is it gets your creative juices flowing. It defeats writers block because it takes out the procrastination. Even if you think you don’t have any ideas, you suddenly do as soon as you start typing. I also like that it displays your word count while you are typing. This app had very few ads (although it does ask for a “tip” at some points to help cover the cost of making the app, so they won’t have to overrun the app with advertisements.
This is just a suggestion, but in the future I would like to be able to change minutes to word count. For example, instead of writing for five minutes, you could switch the settings to 300 words or something like that. I think that would make it easier for people writing, say, an essay that had to be 500 words or something like that. Again, this has nothing to do with the value of the product, I just think it would be a good idea to add to further versions of this app. It is a great app and I would recommend buying it.
Simple, easy, and motivating!
This app is fantastic, especially for something that’s been made free for everyone to use. The design is simplistic, lacking all the bits and baubles that could distract you during a writing session. It’s very easy to use and user-friendly. The app is also highly motivating. It provides around a 5-second grace period for you to stop typing during a session before the built-in anti-procrastination timer kicks in at the bottom of the screen, just above your keyboard. That grace period is something I really appreciate, as someone who just really can’t stand leaving behind typos in my writing to “come back to later”.
It also has very, very few ads when compared to other freely available apps. The only ads I’ve ever encounter are one tiny banner across the top of the screen, and one fullscreen ad with a dismissal timer that only ever pops up if you fail your writing challenge. Plus, as far as I’m seeing, if you choose to donate some money to the developer - which helps minimize the prevalence of ads - the ads disappear! Already very minimal ads, and all it takes is buying the developer a cup of coffee to permanently remove those, too! (As far as I can tell; I haven’t actually confirmed this.)
Overall, it’s an amazing app, and it’s been great for my writer’s block. Highly recommend it for anyone who needs that extra kick.
My First Danger Note
What do I want to write about?
Hard to say. I haven’t done this very many times and this is my first time using danger notes. It could’ve cool. I do really like the way that writing allows your thoughts to flow and let’s you get out an emotion or a feeling into words, often in a way you can’t achieve whilst conversing with someone else. Though that is a key aspect the evolution of knowledge, human knowledge has grown far beyond what any one of us can converse about in any single interaction with another person. Jesus! Danger notes is trying to kill me! It’s getting Daaaaaangerous, I think you need to slow down. How much longer do I have to write for? This is maybe 3 minutes in. It’s killing me. I’m dying. This. Is. Dangerous.
I’m afraid I’m going to lose my work at any second and I’m hanging on the edge of a cliff with my fingers dangling. Now that I’m here, it’s gets a bit peaceful. We continue to write as if there is no timer because we are doing just that to express our thoughts, writing. This makes the act of writing become and escape from the timer and let’s you actually get content onto the page. And now that I’m here, the timer has done, the danger is gone, and I’m free to continue or stop at any time to my pleasing. It’s a feeling of bliss that comes over the writer as if an accomplishment has been achieved or the writer has achieved enlightenment. Enlightenment, lost once you stop writing.
