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.

This review is for a very old version of the app and is no longer valid.
