The Other Reviews Are Spiteful and Outrageous

To start off, Storybird is by far one of my favorite writing platforms. It’s awesome to write and get feedback from all ages, rather than a narrow group like most other websites. Something people don’t seem to understand when they rate the app 1-3 stars it is obvious you must buy a subscription to use the app. However, you can’t buy it immediately. That’s why people seem to think it’s “misleading” that the app is free. Storybird originally started as a free website, then evolved into an app and website that require monthly/other payment. This is because those who develop the website and app aren’t receiving enough payoff to continue the fun. It’s sad, and everyone fully understands that some people cannot afford the payment required, awesome. Find another platform.
My only complaints are that new stories don’t actually appear or get much recognition, and the “classics” have remained on the front page for years. I get that those are the stories that have received the most feedback and hearts, but it’s unfortunate that newer writers and creative stories don’t get nearly as much exposure as they could.

Nah just nah

This used to be the best writing app and it improved my stories, grammar, grades, and much more. I hate how you have to have a membership to do anything. You could write a picture book and do so many challenges. I can’t even write a chapter book! Now you have to have a membership to do anything as I’ve said before. All of the pictures are locked and this is useless until you get a membership. This is useless. It’s trash. Whomever made the update doesn’t think at all. I looked and saw Storybird in writing apps, and I LOVED that my favorite website had an app, then saw that you had to have an overpriced membership. This is useless trash. Not the recyclable trash that you can recycle and feel good about, or the stuff for projects like tin cans. This is the snotty piece of trash that thinks it’s better than everybody else in the trash can but has no friends in the trash can.

It was way better back then.

I got Storybird because I remember using it back in elementary school. I wanted to see if I could read some of my old stories and publish some of my newer work. Back then, everything on Storybird was free. You could make anything without having to pay for the membership. It was such a bad idea to make your users pay for a membership JUST to write a story. As a suggestion, you should probably take that away. People want to use your app to write, but they can’t without paying $8.99 a month or more. Make it free to write- writing is an amazing form of art in which people get joy out of doing. You’re losing users with this update. You can keep the membership so users can get additional perks, but please let us write without having to pay. That ruins the whole point.
