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.
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.
I got Danger Notes a little while ago, and the app is very cool, and is exactly what was promised in the description.
There is a grey bar that shows progress in your set time, and when you stop typing, a red bar goes across the screen to show how long before everything you wrote would be deleted. As soon as you finish the time, you can save.
Although it is promising, I think it would be beneficial if there was either a website or software that could be downloaded onto a laptop, as I feel that is where most people do their writing. (At least that’s where I write for the most part)
Another thing that could be done is to put a “pause” button of sorts for if the user can’t continue typing and needs to immediately stop. That way, they don’t lose what they had written as a result of stopping. And then after, they could “unpause” and continue from where they left off in their timer.
Otherwise, I love the app so far and can’t wait to see any updates that get written in the future.
