Bingo mom ,

Writing is too small

So, I put in the title of my new book, then I write a little description about it. I begin to write the first sentence,"The fire's heat loomed over me, and the water bubbled over." I type in the word 'the' and I can barely see it. I play around with the app seeing if you can make the text bigger. Nope. I tried to work with it, but I just couldn't. Please change this, because it gets very hard when your text is smaller than an ant.

This is so cool!

I was looking for writing apps when I came across this one. I downloaded it, seeing that it had good ratings. I looked around the app and it was so cool! Writing on this app is really fun, making me movivated to write more. I like that you can choose pictures for your books, and all the writers are really nice! I have one problem though. I was writing a story and I posted the second chapter. The next day I went on and looked at it to see the comments, and the chapter was COMPLETELY gone. And it wasn't in drafts either. So, if the creators could fix it, it would be much better.
(Sorry 'bout the long text. I just had a lot to say XD)

Halie cool ,


Normally I don't usually leave reviews, but I noticed a few things that could be fixed and thought why not?

The app itself is nicely organized and very fun! But a few bugs that happen are
1. When I get onto the app, it will take quite a while to load(If it doesn't kick me off during the first 5 minutes)
2. When I am able to stay on, I will tap on the profile page and it force-closes immediately.
3. My text will lag incredibly while I am writing, it can be very frustrating

I really do like this app, it's fun and has a great concept! But maybe your crew could improve a few things?
