Ratings and Reviews
Great, unless you use a Bluetooth keyboard
This is really a lovely writing app. I love the themes and sounds and fun extras, but I hate on-screen keyboards, so I use a Bluetooth keyboard with my iPad Mini for writing, and this app doesn't allow me to hide the on-screen keyboard when writing, even if I'm using a Bluetooth keyboard. That's a huge dissapointment. I hope that's addressed in the next version.
Looks good to write on
but to buy all the tools looks to be expensive.
maybe i will wait till the keyboard comes out. matter a fact, why not you guys create the keyboard. look at this?
No capital letter after each period. wow. not good. no microphone either. whats wrong with this pict?
The pricing for extra features is a rip off
I originally bought the MacOS version of this app and I loved it. This has really helped me center my focus when writing. No lines, boxes or rulers, just an open space for me to write and let the words flow.
Once I found out they had an iOS version I had to get it only to be disappointed. The base price for this app is 0.99 cents but then you have to pay for all the features and the prices goes way up.
Want to change the themes? That 3.99
How about a writing timer (which I do writing sprints daily) that’s another 2.99
What about the creative tools? Another 2.99
This brings the sum total to a whopping $10.96 when I only had to pay $5.99 to get all of these features not he MacOS version! I like this app and will continue to use it but I will not be paying for al these extra features on the iOS version. Ill make due with the free features until I get home to my Mac.
To the Developer: Please pick one reasonable price to offer these features and I will gladly upgrade to the premium features. But there is no reason the iOS version should be nearly 2x the price of the MacOS version.
