Ratings and Reviews
Very cool app! Adding media and organizing it to look nice is a breeze. And the sketching feature is a godsend, since I like to do some markup while I organize ideas for my writing. Then when I have enough information and some good ideas and visuals for the content of my article, I can begin writing distraction-free in a full-screen text page. As a writer, I love the light text on charcoal background - super gentle on my eyes. I also appreciate how gorgeous the overall design is — quite beautiful and a joy to use. Highly recommended!
DO NOT BUY. I had high hopes for this app.. but I have already emailed Apple demanding my money back. The app does not save even the simplest photo or text I input into it, it returns a variety of conflicting error messages claiming that it cannot sync becuase of edits made to the documents outside of the app… even though the test note I created was made soley inside Storme, it has frozen my 2-week old iMac twice in 30 minutes.
Also, once downloaded it comes with absolutely zero instructions of how to use. Just an empty folder window.
No no no.
Developer Response ,
I'm the developer of Storme for Mac, and I noticed your negative review of our app on the Mac App Store.
I just want to say, I totally understand. Most initial software releases have some bugs that can get through the cracks which get corrected in the first couple of bug fix update releases.
Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t really provide an easy way to let customers try-before-they-buy so customers can give us feedback on any problems without having to pay (except through promo codes which require a direct request to the developer).
In any case, we've been working hard to correct all the problems you mentioned, and then some. I would be happy to provide you with a promo code so you can download the latest version of the app for free from the Mac App Store with many bug fixes and improvements.
Let me know if you're interested! You can reach me here, or at email@example.com.
P.S. The Help book is accessible from the Help menu. You can also access it online here: http://bluemuse.co/storme-help-book.
***UPDATE*** I've been in correspondence with the original reviewer, and he wishes to update his review but is unable since he deleted his iTunes account, and then created a new Apple ID and account. Apple has been unable to help, even after many emails/telephone conversations from both his end and my end, and so it appears this invalid review will remain. Here is the original reviewers email after using the latest version of Storme: "I just downloaded the app with the code an its am amazing improvement - and it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. In the processes of designing FW17 for my upcoming line. Thanks so much for the info. I will definitely follow up with the processes of reseting password but I fear I deleted the account all together (Basically I got a pixel phone and went through the process of closing down apple accounts… and of course switched back) Either way I’ll make sure it gets removed and then in the mean time I’l write a new review on my new account. Thanks again for the help and the code.
Really really awesome job!
