Exactly What I Needed

I’ve been searching all over for an app like this — I even googled it. I love how it breaks down each section and subsection of my story so that I don’t miss any details or leave any holes in my plot. That’s exactly what I was looking for. It’s user-friendly, the subtle navigation animations are very fluid, and with the split-screen feature, I can write my scenes and have my character’s bio up at the same time for reference. That way, their characteristics remain consistent throughout the story. Best of all, it’s a one-time purchase, not a monthly subscription (why is that even a thing?) and there aren’t any hidden “premium features” that you pay extra to unlock. The example story that comes with the app is a good reference if you’re not sure what to put in the boxes to build your story. It’s seriously the best app for writers that have trouble structuring all of their ideas into a story that makes sense. It will be the best $5 that you ever invest into your work, believe the hype!

A must-have for any writer

I can’t believe this app is free! I have spent money on apps that are less helpful than this. The app allows you to record different details about characters and locations, and even provides a helpful guide explaining different types of characters, scenes, etc. No more searching through what I’ve already written to find out a character’s eye color.

You can tie it all together by adding scenes. I especially found the chronological timeline helpful, which helps you keep track of when your scenes are occurring. You can also record other details including the characters, locations, and type of scene. The statistics are not necessary but I do enjoy looking at my top five characters and locations.

TL;DR - Absolutely necessary for any writer. My whole writing process would not be the same without it.

A quick reference outline that keeps excess paper and computer boot ups out of the way

Although I have already created an outline via Microsoft, I immediately inputted that info into this app. It gives me quick access to all notes I need so that I can continue to work on my writing without having to search for hand written notes or toggle back and forth between windows and files on the same computer I’m using to type. It was well worth the small amount of money it costs. If I could rate the app higher I would. Some may like conventional methods (I still use pen and paper when an idea comes to me and I need to jot it down fast), however, the ease of mind knowing where and how easy it is to access information that is critical to your creative work is a godsend.
