Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I’m currently writing a book using this app. And it is doing a amazing job of keeping tack of all my information. Being able to jump over to character summaries and back to writing chapters is nice. The chapters are organized, and when I email myself the manuscript to back it up and edit my latest chapter, everything is organized and laid out almost like a book. It is so much easier to write a book on this app lounging around having it auto fill words, auto correct words. All this while not having to maintain a composed posture behind a keyboard. I have a full time job, and am a full time dad. And yet I’ve been able to write over 18,000 words in the last 10 days!
I do have 2 complaints. The first one, I have seen other bring this up too. Having to scroll all the way back to the top of the page to turn on/off italics or change font or whatever when you’re 2000 words deep into a chapter is a huge time waster. So I’ve taken to just writing plainly and then editing after I send the chapter to my computer.
The other complaint is that if the app crashes, or even just has a hiccup, I loose everything I was just writing in that chapter. I try to save things periodically. But when the creative juices are flowing eh? A couple times this has happened and I can’t remember exactly what i wrote. This is how you make people go crazy.
And that’s it. A solid app. Needs very little change to be the best.
Love it but room for improvement
I love it! Definitely the best writing app I’ve come across so far. The organizational system is so helpful! It even includes the option to view your work as a story board. The only things it’s missing are 1. Better compatibility with the iPad keyboard cases. As of right now the up/down and left/right arrows do not work in the app removing one of the easiest ways to edit on the ipad. 2. A formate where you can view all the chapters and scenes together as if you were viewing/writing them in a word Document or any document that lets you read and write page by page and 3. A more customisable section where you can add, store, and organize characters. It would be nice if you can add your own custom panels to the characters section and write in them like you can with the chapter scenes. At the moment there are only 2: “short summary” and “main description.” For example, making a new panel/scene and naming it “relationships” or “character flaws” then writing more detail in that section. 4. The ability to copy/duplicate scenes and chapters in case you like the formate of the panels of one and want to use the same set up again or just want to keep a copy of an older version your rewriting. 5. The ability to add pictures. Still, I think this is the best writing app I’ve used since the days of A Novel Idea.
This is a great app. I love the chapter and character organization. My only complaint is that I wish I didn’t have to scroll all the way up to italicize my words. But other than that, thank you for this app, I recommend it for authors, even kid authors like me, to use for ideas. Of course, if you really want to get a book published, contact an editor and use things like word documents. That’s what I use, anyways. I did manage to make a book called, “The Star Rider,” about a girl who goes to summer camp, meets a horse, and realizes that she and the horse have a bigger connection than what she realizes, and that she and her horse have magic and that their world is being threatened. She and her friends, Alex and River, set out to save their friends, Katie and Luna, and destroy an evil, extraterrestrial monster that has lived underneath their world in a separate dimension since the beginning of time. Guess where I made this book? On this app! I transferred it to Word for the revision process, and I’m currently on chapter 7 out of 18 chapters. After that I will print it out and contact my agent and my editor most likely. On that note, please be on the lookout for that book especially if you like horses and a bit of magic! Thank you for this app, again, it is my #1 idea source for books/book series’s.
