Needs a little more

When I saw this app, I knew it was what I wanted. I wanted someplace to write stories on the go, and this was it. However, it needs more.

Could you enable titling on your journals so you don't get them mixed up? Like, a label on your notebook in the menu so that you can tell what journal's for what? Also, could you enable toggling the dates on and off and make this app a straight notebook that doesn't necessarily have to be a diary? Thank you.

Attn to: App owner & investors

I hope the owners of this app along with the app makers are going over reviews from people using their product. I was looking for a good journal. Something to keep all my ideas in one place while I get rid of the physical papers and all the different projects I have. I came across this app through what seems to be an old 2012 article boasting this product. I came to the Apple Store to look for it and it seems it is left to nothing. The black and white format is bland and definitely not like the picture I saw in the article with wood grain background and books stacked upon each other to indicate the varying portfolio of ideas. Instead you side swipe for the various journals created. I am disappointed to say the least. I had been looking for something similar to the older version. Unfortunately, that is not what I found. I found a bland app which seems downgraded by its makers. I'm sorry to whatever brought you to the decision of revamping the app to it's present day form. Please bring back the old format with wood grain. Black journals with its title on the left and a black background.

A Once Good App Gone to Pot

I used the last iteration of the Pad & Quill app and was sad when that one was no longer updated. When I heard that a new version was coming along I was excited, as I loved the options for fonts and covers that were available. When the new version came out I immediately downloaded it and was happy with the usability and features. I even went in for the in-app purchase of more fonts and the ability to add photos. For a while I was a happy camper. Then problems started. One day, I could no longer type in landscape mode, the page freezing every time I tried to type. Next, the save feature ceased to function, causing me to lose my work. Then even when I typed in portrait mode the screen would freeze when I tried to save my work. I had to close out of the app every single time I typed something new and hope my work wouldn't be erased. I contacted customer support (through their website written in another language) with specifics but never received an answer. This app is a huge disappointment, and I recommend that you stay away. There are too many other good writing apps out there to waste time on one that is not properly maintained and gives no customer support.
