Ratings and Reviews
I really love this app. I had it for years unused. It just was, but recently I gave myself a 30 challenge to write something everyday. With the daily reminder and prompts, I’m on my way to a good habit.
The one percent off is that syncing is glitchy and duplicated stories that I made changes to from device to device. On one sync 12 stories became 24 and deleting became a game. Deleting the duplicates through the app would not remove them from iCloud. So they would sync back to the app. Then deleting them from iCloud doesn’t and shouldn’t delete them from the app so they got synced back to iCloud when the app synced again. This has the potential to take over iCloud if with lots of duplicate stories. I’ve resigned myself to only using it on my iPad. 😞
I did not take stars because my iPad is very old and the glitch could be caused by how iOS 10 verses IOS 15 sync to iCloud.
Needs to provide prompts throughout various writing assignments
This is Brittany Daniels. For this app to be useful for me it first needs to ask me what I am going to write. Then it needs to give me prompts along the way that are adapted to the writing assignments I currently get and will get in the future while I am working on getting an A.A.S degree in Design and Media Production from Georgia Piedmont Technical College in Clarkston, GA. This is coming from a part time working low income adult college student diagnosed so far with autism, generalized anxiety disorder and dyspraxia who has a very hard time getting her thoughts onto a blank Word Document, because thoughts go so fast to my brain, by the time I go to do whatever writing assignment my professor has currently assigned, I forget what I am going to write. Not many or any apps out there to help me with writing, especially when I am a visual learner who needs prompts along the way of any writing assignments to be given to me to help me get my thoughts down. Also being able to export to Microsoft Word & PowerPoint and other software, like any software under the Adobe CC 2019 collection is going to be very useful for me. Any help will be needed.
I Enjoy This App
I can see where it may be useful for writers block but the random suggestions it throws out is also a great way to get your brain moving and creating in general, plus, it's fun and at times informative and amusing when you reread the stuff you come up with. When you have a random prompt, in my opinion it gets your brain moving and sometimes totally off topic but, if have other projects to write since they are on your mind sometimes, you come up with the starting or the main idea you can rework at a later date and most of the work is already complete except for touch ups and making applicable to the topic, whatever it may be. I don’t use it to journal but those that may have a hard time getting their feelings out may find it useful as well.
